Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time. Blend in yogurt.
Sift flour and measure again with baking powder, salt, and soda. Add to creamed mixture along with rum or water/vanilla combination, lemon rind, and almonds. Blend until thoroughly mixed. Whip egg whites until they hold short peaks, fold into batter. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for 50-55 minutes or until cake tests are done when a toothpick is inserted. Let cake cool in pan 10
minutes then turn onto a serving plate with a rim.
Pour the slightly warm or cold cinnamon syrup over the cake slowly, letting it seep into the cake. The cake should absorb all the liquid. Decorate if desired with whipped cream.

Cinnamon Syrup:

Mix together sugar, honey, water, and cinnamon in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and rum or vanilla extract. Let cool until at least lukewarm before using. Discard cinnamon stick.
