Giaourtoglyko (Yogurt Cake)

Considering Greek yogurt is my favorite, I have been wanting to make this recipe for a while. It is an ideal light and healthy cake to make for a summer treat, and it’s becoming my go-to cake for company. It’s a very quick and easy cake to make since it doesn’t require a mixer or more than 10 minutes for that matter.

I served it last week with orange rind, but I have made it in the past topped with fresh fruits such as berries. It will serve at least 8, with leftovers for breakfast!  Not too sweet or intense but still a compelling cake.
