This homemade Greek Yogurt Vanilla Pound Cake is so simple to make. The texture is dense, tender and moist and the flavor is wonderful. We like to serve it with strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

One of my favorite simple desserts my mom would make during spring and summer was homemade pound cake with strawberries and fresh whipped cream. Nothing fancy, but sometimes the simplest desserts are the best! (Like fresh peaches over ice cream…YUM). This Greek Yogurt Vanilla Pound Cake is delicious. It’s perfectly sweet, but not overly sweet. It gets slightly crisp on the outside while being super soft on the inside. I could eat it for breakfast!

Hi Debra, I’d suggest making this recipe instead (which uses yogurt, lemon and blueberries) https://tastesbetterfromscratch.com/lemon-blueberry-bread/. Otherwise you could add the zest from 1 large lemon, and some frozen blueberries to this recipe.
Could I put a lemon glaze on top of this cake?
This is delicious! Have made it twice since Christmas, adding cranberries and orange zest and a glaze on top. It’s dense and moist and fabulous! Thank you!
