1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup softened butter
3eggs (3/4 cup)
1 (8 oz.) pineapple, lemon, or mandarin orange yogurt or 1 cup dairy sour cream

1 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 tbsp. lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in large mixer bowl and blend at low speed.
Beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
Pour into prepared pan.

Bake at 325 oven for 60 to 70 minutes until top of cake springs back when touched lightly in center.

Cool cake upright in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

GLAZE: Combine powdered sugar with enough lemon juice to make the glaze a drizzling consistency.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Instead of using the glaze on the baked cake, I grease the 10 inch bundt pan with 1 to 2 tbsp of shortening and sprinkle 1 to 2 tbsp. sugar over shortening. This makes a nice crust on the cake which everyone seems to enjoy.
