Prep Time:20 min
Cook Time:50 min
Yield:8 slices


  • CAKE
  • Crisco® Butter Flavor No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 cups Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (not non-fat)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • Peel of 1 lemon, grated
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream


  1. 1.
    PLACE oven rack in center position. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. 2.
    WHISK together flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.

  3. 3.
    COMBINE yogurt, sugar, eggs, lemon peel and almond extract in a large bowl; whisk well to blend. Gradually whisk dry ingredients into yogurt mixture. Stir in oil; mix until well combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan.

  4. 4.
    BAKE until cake begins to pull away from sides and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Using a small, sharp knife, cut around edge of cake to loosen. Turn cake out onto rack; turn upright and cool completely.

  7. 7.
