I was in the mood to make a cake today. But not to ice it. Icing is not my forte on cakes. So I scoured the pantry and found most of the ingredients for this Lime Yogurt Cake with Blackberry Sauce from Smitten Kitchen. Normally, I put my own twist on recipes, and I did with the rice, but I didn’t even try messing with the cake, it looked so delicious. The only thing I did differently on the cake was use 1% plain unsweetened yogurt instead of whole plain unsweetened yogurt.

Seriously. Try the cake.
