I’ve had bundt cake many times…never really been impressed before.   But everything changed the day I tried THIS bundt cake.  The recipe came from my son’s school counselor. In fact, it first caught my eye as I was walking through the faculty room of  the middle school.  I can usually resist… but this time NOT.  It was fantastic!   I have since  tweaked the recipe into multiple variations.  My family has enjoyed being guinea pigs for the many flavor combinations.  So now, I share with you this “mix and match” bundt cake that not only is incredibly moist and flavorful, but so versatile that you can totally make it your own if you choose.  You can do everything from adding extras like poppy seeds, blueberries, strawberries or chocolate chips to completely changing the flavor by adding a different flavored yogurt.  Get creative, knowing that the end result will always be the moistest bundt cake you have ever had!
