Lemon Strawberry Bundt Cake



This is a light and moist lemony cake with a hint of strawberry.  Do be liberal with the greasing and dusting of the Bundt pan as the strawberry may stick to it when unmoulding.  Great cake to go with tea or coffee!

                                                          T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
