Recipe for French yogurt cake with clear glaze and white icing

Makes one 8-inch loaf cake

In France, home bakers measure all the ingredients in the small, glass yogurt containers they buy in the supermarket: three containers of flour, two of sugar, one of yogurt. Lots of bakers make a version of this cake. This is based on a recipe from Dorie Greenspan and uses both a clear glaze and white icing. I have made this cake with great success using half vegetable oil and half olive oil.
