Add vanilla, 1 teaspoon of the lemon peel, and the lemon flavoring. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture and half of the plain yogurt; beat until combined. Repeat with remaining flour and yogurt. Divide batter among prepared pans. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool on wire rack 5 minutes; remove from pans and cool thoroughly on wire racks.
