Baked Cheesecake Made with Strained Yogurt

Baked Cheesecake Made with Strained Yogurt

This is a cake I thought up that uses strained yogurt in place of cream cheese. This is a cake with the refreshing taste of lemon.

Ingredients: 15 cm round cake pan

Strained yogurt
200 g (500 g before straining)
Egg (large)
70 g
Melted butter
50 g
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon
Vanilla extract
Several drops
Cake flour
2 tablespoons


1. Pour the 500 g of unsweetened yogurt into a sieve lined with cheesecloth, cotton gauze or paper towels, and leave to strain overnight (place a bowl beneath the sieve).
2. This is what the well-strained yogurt should look like.
3. Crack the eggs into a bowl, and add the sugar as well. Mix together well with a handheld mixer. This step is important! You can do it!!
4. When the egg mixture turns thick and pale it's done!
5. Add the strained yogurt, lemon juice, melted butter, and vanilla extract to Step 4, and mix it in with the handheld mixer.
6. Sift in the cake flour.
7. Change to a rubber , spatula, and cut and fold the flour in to the batter.
8. Pour into the mold, bake in an oven preheated to 170ºC for 50~45 minutes, and it is done.
