Midnight Baking…

There’s yogurt and lemons in the fridge, it’s near midnight and I cannot fall asleep. Instead I wander food blogs like a nomad, doting over pretty pictures of summer fruits and decadent cakes topped with billows of soft whipped cream. I pause here for a moment, such a happy, simple cake. One I could have a slice from right before going to sleep, and another slice when I wake up.

So I baked this yogurt cake in quiet of the rainy Manoa night, omitting the rum and grating in the zest of a single lemon. A tender light, lemony slice with a hot cup of tea put a smile on my face and I went to sleep quite content.

    Hey Kat!I don’t usually eat too late in the night, but this just hit the spot! Warm, not too sweet, moist and a little lemony! :)Hey Kirk!lol, you should have seen the kitchen when I woke up this morning…I left out the part of ‘forgetting’ to do the dishes, hehe :)Hey Penny!oooh, blueberries and nectarines sound like a really good combination – the possibilities are seemingly endless with this cake! :)
