Lemon Yogurt Cake with Blueberry Sauce

Its almost time to celebrate.  On Tuesday at 3:30 I will be a homeowner!  Its almost over!  And then the real work will begin.  But that will be the fun work – paint some walls – eventually re-do the kitchen – build tons and tons of garden beds.  Did I mention we were going to make this into an urban farm??  Well we are!  And soon (in about a year) we plan on selling our produce at the farmer’s market.  But there is lots to do before we get to that point.  lots. to. do.  But I can do all of that later on when I don’t have lemons, blueberries and yogurt waiting for me.

This is one of those cakes that you can make for any occasion – night or day.  Not all cakes translate well into a breakfast food – like German chocolate cake might not be the best way to start your morning – but this cake is!  I want to start every day with this cake!  It has yogurt and berries – and that, to me, sounds like a nicely rounded breakfast!

Anyway – this cake is to die for!  Its so easy – I made it 2x in 1 week.  Each time is was gobbled down in a day (with a small piece left over for breakfast the next morning!).  The great thing about this cake is that the ingredients are simple – you probably have most of them on hand.  And if you don’t have lemon you can use orange, lime, grapefruit – really anything!  And the same goes for the sauce.  I had a bag of frozen blueberries so I went for blueberry sauce, but you could use any kind of fruit – frozen or fresh.

So go forth and bake a cake.  And then once your friends have eaten it all, bake another one, because there is no better way to kiss up to your boss then to bring in a cake for no apparent reason.
