Rosemary Lemon Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Outta Here

This is a nice, light dessert from Cooking Light magazine. The original called for currants, but I use diced dried cranberries (Craisins). I also serve with a dollop of non-fat, no sugar added lemon yogurt. Cooking time does not include cooling time.

Followed recipe as written. Cake didn't rise as much as in the photos, but I was told it tasted good (I baked this for my sister's luncheon). It was very easy to make and seemed very healthy!
