You can't believe how delicious and moist this cake comes out, and best of all is that the cake is made with mostly whole wheat flour, applesauce and yogurt, then glazed with a thin layer of lemony icing. Looks so appealing and tastes even better!

Absolutely delicious and super moist, I gave away a few slices to our neighbours, and they all couldn't stop raving about it.

None of them could tell that the cake was made with mostly whole wheat flour. The Greek yogurt added the nice tang to the cake and made the cake so moist. Needless to day that the cake was packed with strawberry flavor.

If you are on a diet, but still need to satisfy your sweet tooth once a while, this cake should be added on your to-bake dessert list. You won't feel guilty at all, because it's actually packed with goodness :)
