  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl of an electric mixer combine sugar, butter, and lemon zest for 3-4 minutes, so it's nice and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time. Mix in lemon rind and juice. Fold in the dry mixture. Then fold in Greek yogurt, then gently fold in raspberries.
  4. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before inverting on to a wire rack to cool completely. Then start the glaze.

Lemon Glaze
