Gâteau au Citron, or, French-Style Yogurt Cake with Lemon

Kate ArendsKate Arends

This recipe was featured in A Homemade Life, a book that I devoured while laying on the beach in March 2009. This cake has a history behind it for Molly Wizenberg…in fact, it was this cake that, in a twist of fate, brought her future husband to her blog. Taken by her nack for words and love for food, he contacted her and a relationships bloomed. All because of this cake. I would highly recommend her book and this cake. It’s a simple, satisfying dessert that has a kind of rustic charm that Molly describes as “the sort of humble treat that a grandmother would make.”
