Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake

Fall is in the air!  And this is the perfect cake.
Junior League cookbooks have always provided excellent recipes and this is no exception.
This recipe is from For Goodness Taste  from The Rochester New York Junior League and we have made it many times for our dessert buffet.
One of the best parts of this cake?  The smell in the house while it is baking….heavenly!
Please note that this makes a really good sized cake and takes almost an hour to bake but certainly worth the wait.
14-16 servings

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter softened
2 1/4 cups flour
1 cup plain yogurt
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

In a large bowl cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.

Or all three………
