Super Easy Cheesecake with Yogurt and Pancake Mix

Super Easy Cheesecake with Yogurt and Pancake Mix

An easy recipe that can be made in 1 bowl, and there's no need to strain the yogurt! Despite using yogurt instead of cheese, this tastes like a rich baked cheesecake.

Ingredients: 18 cm round mold

Plain yogurt
400 g
Pancake mix
100 g
Your favorite jam or sugar
50-80 g
Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons


1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 355°F/180°C. Grease the mold with oil, and dust with flour (not listed in ingredients) or line with baking parchment.
2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well, then pour the mixture into the mold. Bake in the 180℃ oven for 55-70 minutes.
3. Variation: I tried making it with 450 g of yogurt and no oil, to make it both easier and healthier. It had a nice, dense texture.
4. If you are using a mold that is taller with a smaller circumference, adjust the cooking time as necessary or otherwise it will not cook through.
5. According to user "momosuke1225", 1/8 of this cake is about 97 calories (when made with 80 g of jam and no oil).
6. Some users suggested making it in a rice cooker on the "rice porridge" setting – it's even easier to cook this way, and turns out looking really nice.

Story Behind this Recipe
