Mediterranean lemon cake

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Softened butter
1½ cup Sugar
4 Eggs, room temp
1 tablespoon Grated lemon peel
2½ cup Unbleached flour
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 cup Yogurt, room temp
¾ cup Finely ground nuts
½ cup Lemon juice

Cream the softened butter and 1 c of the sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and the lemon peel; blend thoroughly. Sift the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together. Add dry ingredients alternately with the yogurt. Fold in the ground nuts.

Turn into a well-greased 9 inch tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean.

Combine the ½ c sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Heat until sugar has dissolved and pour over the cake while still warm. Allow cake to cool in the pan. From "The Portable Feast" by Diane D.
