lemon yogurt ring

mak's friend ask to bake something
no. i am not taking orders
just helping her out..

the week old lemon is still untouched
the yogurt is past due date

any other good reason to hit this recipe??

1st time baking in fluted tube pan..
which i bought to make chiffon/ sponge cake

it didnt turn out well
the base is not as crusty as the top

i suppose i shouldve prolong the baking time

but i just proceed with the glazing..

  7. in another bowl, whisk egg whites and salt until stiff peaks are formed
  8. fold dry ingredients into butter mixture
