Strawberry Yogurt Cake
The other day, I happened upon a recipe for Strawberry Basil Yogurt Cake. It sounded quite good and very original.
Basil and strawberries are two ingredients that I would not think of using together. But the more I thought about them, the more I thought that they would work. And I had planned to stop at the Farmers Market to get some fresh basil.
Well this week has had some major ups and downs and I didn't make it over in time. But I still had strawberries and yogurt. Plus G's sweet tooth was in overdrive. After all that he's been through the past few days, he deserved a treat. So did I.
