Friends, just in time for springtime holidays (Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day or Fourth of July), this amazing Raspberry Yogurt Cake is a hit at every breakfast or brunch!

Raspberry Yogurt Cake

I think if I could have a love affair with any fruit, it would be the raspberry, which is why you need to try this breakfast cake! And for this cake, you can use frozen or fresh raspberries!

Ever since I was little, it’s always been my favorite berry, partly because I had to pick so many gallons of blackberries in the summertime growing up, I ate far too many and it ruined my love for the big blackberries. Watch the video, and go make this delicious Raspberry Yogurt Cake! :)

Can you put yogurt in cake?

Yes, you can add yogurt to any cake or even store-bought cake mixes. It will do wonders for the flavor, making it tangy and sweet and so moist.

We love to add Greek yogurt in breakfast cakes! You may have already tried my Strawberry Breakfast Yogurt Cake or Cinnamon Fig Yogurt Cake. Add it to a Bacon Egg Breakfast Board Muffins for a great weekend brunch!

Pinehurst Inn at Jenny Creek, Oregon

The Pinehurst Inn at Jenny Creek

The Pinehurst Inn, outside of Ashland, Oregon, is one of our favorite places to visit.

We’ve stayed here many times, for birthdays, anniversaries, special times when we’ve just wanted to be together to fish Jenny Creek. We’d find babysitters, or family, and splurge on one night in the Inn. It’s an enchanting place, if you’ve never been to this bed and breakfast, and the food is always delightful.

Fly fishing on Jenny Creek

This time the banks were a little overgrown, but at dusk we made our way as far along Jenny Creek as we could go. My husband is a stud fly-fisherman. He’s what I want to be when I grow up, at least with my casting. This summer, I’ve promised myself I’m going to perfect my fishing here on the Fall River!

It’s beautiful places like this that make my heart sing, when I’m out in nature.

The profoundness of the day.

Our lives are passing quickly, so why not get out into nature more and explore God’s greatness?

Live in the now!

I’m always in awe when I see a weed so beautiful and intricately made. (And also, the lines on our faces … didn’t we just get married?) :)

With so much happening in the world today, on this day I found myself wanting to live in the moment.

Not jump ahead with thoughts of tomorrow, or waste my energy with regrets or failures of the past—but live in the now.
