Joanna was looking at recipes for a Lemon cake. She loves Lemon cake (Lemon Loaf, Lemon Poppy muffins…you get the picture, she’s a lemon fan). She came across a few that she liked. Most had buttermilk or milk in the recipe so she thought why not replace it with Greek yogurt! Well the results were fantastic!
