A lowfat cake made with yogurt
- 1 egg

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

This cake was great! One of the best lemon poppyseed cakes I have ever had! I added the juice of one lemon to the wet ingredients, and at the end i sprinkled the cake with icing sugar to make it just a bit sweeter.... Terrific! Thanks very much!
