Orange-Yogurt Cake

Orange-Yogurt Cake

I love fruit! I am one of those people who regularly consumes their daily 5 portion of fresh fruit and vegetable. I never miss out on a green apple or a fresh orange or some papaya as a snack in-between meals or as a dessert-replacement after lunch or dinner.

I also like to incorporate fruit into my cooking, making sweet/sour sauces to dress meat, or make delicious muffins or cake.

Just the other day I made this orange and yogurt cake which turn out awesome! The recipe is an adaptation of Marta Stewart's. Hope you like it!
