Little Lemon Yogurt Cakes

Who doesn't love a lemon cake?, especially in the spring (which can show up anytime now).

These are the perfect little cakes for Easter.
You can make them in cupcake liners and put them out at brunch.

I love anything lemon.
What else can I say?

Little Lemon Yogurt Cakes

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tbsp fresh lemon zest
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 oz. plain yogurt

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

In another bowl mix the butter, sugar, lemon juice and zest, eggs, vanilla and yogurt together.
Gradually add in the dry ingredients.

Drop scoopfuls of batter into lined muffin tins and bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.

Short and sweet.

Enjoy the weekend.

Hi Nathalie,

It's good for 10 muffin tins.....I use big paper liners, so I only get about 8 or 9.

I first found them at TJ Maxx (Home Goods), and loved them, so I re bought them on amazon, look under muffin liners......these are about $8. for a pack, they are large, heavy paper and wax lined, beautiful colors too.

Stacy, finally making these, but I did something wrong. Should the butter have gone in with the "dry ingredients" or the sugar, eggs, etc. You didn't specify and I am not skilled enough to know. Thanks very much. Ginny

Sorry, the butter always goes in w/ the eggs, sugar stuff.
I hope they were still ok!
