Lemon and Thyme Yogurt Bundt Cake

Lemon and Thyme Yogurt Bundt Cake

Today I am happily sharing this Lemon and Thyme Yogurt Bundt Cake. The cake is a perfect combination of both sweet lemon and minty-earthy thyme. This time, I add freshly chopped thyme straight into the cake batter, making the thyme flavor shine through everything. It is actually a fairly mild in flavor, the cake is not that sweet and overwhelming. But If I am being honest, I think the real star is the lemon glaze on top. The lemon glaze not only adds the crisp on the outer layer of the cake, but also refreshing sweet and tart flavor that compliments the whole cake. (more…)

There is only one brand of Thai tea mix available here, which is Number One Brand. Making your own Thai iced tea is surprisingly easy — just brew, strain, add condensed milk and voila… it’s ready to be served over ice.

Can you imagine how much a pound of loose tea leaves are in the package? For a cup of Thai iced tea, you need to add about one tablespoon of Thai tea mix. There was still a lot left over, so I decided to do a little experiment on infusing Thai tea with desserts. The result is a light, subtle flavor that offers an interesting change from your normal recipe. More importantly, there is no baking involved. (more…)
