Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Fresh strawberries and lemon are the perfect match in this lovely bundt cake

I love making bundt cakes and I wanted to attempt to make more in the past year or so. This one (although it didn't turn out super pretty) was very tasty. I loved the strawberry lemon combo and the Greek yogurt made it incredibly moist. I think this would be great subbing in blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries, but I really enjoyed having strawberries in a dessert. It seems like most of the time I don't get to bake with fresh strawberries. So this cake was a welcome rarity!
