Strawberry Yogurt Pound Cake

Strawberry Yogurt Pound Cake created by canarygirl

This pound cake doesn't use the traditional pound of butter, it only uses half a cup! But you can definitely taste the butter in it, it's delicious and moist. Top with fruit, use in a trifle, or just have a plain slice with coffee.

    I tried this recipe coz I had strawberry yogurt that was almost expired and didn't want to throw it. I was so surprised it turned out really delicious. My husband likes it a lot and now I am making a new one and give to my brother tomorrow. This time I will lessen my sugar because my brother doesn't like sweet. I would recommend you to try this simple recipe that tastes so good!

    This recipe didn't work out for me. I followed the directions carefully but the cake tasted raw in the middle even though the cake tester came out clean. I put the cake back into the oven and baked it for about 15 minutes but it became dry, I ended up throwing it away.

    I made this and took it to dinner at my in laws. Topped it with whipped cream. It was ok, but it seemed very heavy, even for a pound cake. No one asked for seconds, no one wanted the recipe and no one offered to take the left over home which is very unusual.

    I brought this to work and it was a huge hit--gone in five minutes! I don't have a loaf pan, so I had to make this in an 8x8x2 pan. I lowered the temperature some (around 300F) and it took about 28 minutes. Came out fine, as my coworkers will attest!

    Nice and easy. I was also surprised by how much it smelled like strawberries when cooking. Would be nice to use as a base for other things--shortcake type dessert comes to mind. Very dense cake.
