READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

This pound cake, tenderized with yogurt instead of butter, is utterly simple and versatile. Enjoy a slice for breakfast with a steaming mug of coffee, or serve it after dinner with fruit coulis or whipped cream.

I have had the 2005 issue of Bon Appetite with a Flag on this recipe for -- well, 5 years ! Finally baked it today and wondered if anyone had posted on Zaar -- Surprise-Surprise -- already here ! It is a peculiar preparation, 'specially the part about "folding in the vegetable oil". It truly is a lovely, tender cake, and would serve anywhere where pound cake may be incorporated -- as in a trifle -- without the glaze. Thanks for posting -- I can now pitch my old magazine copy !!
