French Yogurt cake is wonderful - ideas for variations?

After seeing numerous mentions of the classic French yogurt cake (aka Gâteau au Yaourt), I finally got the recipe from Chocolate and Zucchini and made it last night.

How lovely! It was moist and tasty, sweet enough but not too sweet, and easy to dress up or down. Best, it's not that terribly high in fat or cholesterol - there's only two eggs and 1/3 cup of oil. Oh, and the full-fat yogurt, of course (I wouldn't skimp on this - life's too short).

I plan to make this cake again - lots! Althought I doubt that I would get tired of it, are there any variations I could do to the basic recipe? Lemon? Fruit bits? Part whole-wheat flour? Chocolate? Glazes?

Thanks,
Anne

P.S. Last night, I served it with a Cranberry Grand Marnier sauce (made from leftover homemade cranberry relish, thinned with a bit of orange juice and a huge splash of Grand Marnier). It was definitely good enough to serve to company.
