    This cake is so simple and good I sometimes have it for breakfast! As a variation use flavoured yoghurt or add some jam to the mix.

    Good good good!!! This is so versatile and quick! I love messimg with recipes and this a cake you can do that with. I made this maple-flavored with maple flavor extract and used brown sugar. I'm going to try this again different ways, for sure!  -  28 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very good! I love using yogurt, so this recipe peaked my interest. I ended up adding some salt and vanilla, out of habit. Then I took Beth's suggestion and added some orange marmalade, dried cranberries and some ginger. Excellent! Very moist! Thanks!  -  19 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Well, the first time I tried to make it, I forgot to add eggs! Needless to say, that version wasn't a success. But I tried it again, and I'm glad I did. It was a yummy moist cake that went perfect with our ice cream sundaes. Will make again; it's a great way to use up yogurt.  -  16 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
