Yield: 12 Servings
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (8 ounces) lemon yogurt
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped candied lemon peel
2 tablespoons finely chopped candied orange peel
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla, lemon peel and orange peel. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture alternately with yogurt. Beat just until combined.
Transfer to a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and enough lemon juice to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with candied lemon and orange peel.
