Glazed Yogurt Cake

I found this recipe by Isabelleathome
on Tasty Kitchen and had to try it.
Yum - anything made with orange marmalade has to be good!
 It took 10 minutes to put together, 45 minutes to cook and was easy.

Glazed Yogurt Cake

1 1/2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 c. sugar
3 whole eggs
2 T orange zest (from 1 orange)
1 t. almond extract
1/2 c. canola oil
1/3 c. orange marmalade
2 T orange juice

Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan (I used my bundt pan).
Zest the orange, then juice it.  Set both zest and juice aside.  In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.  In a second bowl mix yogurt and sugar til smooth.  To that, add the eggs once at a time, whisking til smooth, then add the orange zest and the extract.  Now whisk in the oil.  Finally, add all of the flour mixture to the wet  mixture and  stir gently til well incorporated.  Do not overmix.  Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake 50-60 minutes.  *note* I baked mine for less time - I like a really moist cake.  Adjust your baking time to the pan you are using.
Once the cake is out of oven, mix the marmalade and 
2 T. fresh OJ in a pot on low heat til syrupy. 
Poke a few holes in the top of warm cake and gently spoon on the glaze. 
Let cool completely and serve.
We spooned sliced strawberries over each slice and enjoyed it with vanilla bean ice cream and it was wonderful - like a pound cake in texture.   
With the weather getting warmer, my baking days are coming to an end.   
That, and using the dryer...hello, clothesline and stove!
