The combination of lemon and yogurt works magic in this cake and creates a lovely soft and light texture in this cake..I really enjoy it so much.
You can easily make this cake as orange yogurt cake, instead of lemon zest add orange zest and in the icing, add orange juice for lemon juice. You can even skip the icing part, but i suggest you to make it since it adds a extra moistness in this cake..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
