Chocolate Yogurt Cheesecake Recipe

Chocolate Yogurt Cheesecake


I made a Yogurt Cheesecake previously and commented that technically it was not a cheesecake since yogurt is not cheese. And texturally it was not quite a cheesecake either. Nevertheless it was delicious. However, from the texture perspective, this chocolate cheesecake more closely resembles a cheesecake texture. And the taste is fantastic.

And this version of cheesecake is cheaper since Greek or Turkish yogurt is much cheaper than cream cheese. I still stand behind the comment I made on the Yogurt Cheesecake Recipe post, you can have 3-4 slices, with no guilt. But don’t blame me if you notice the effects later.  The recipe is available here.

Yogurt Cheesecake Recipe

Technically this is not a cheesecake since yogurt is not cheese. I hope the recipe naming police does not find me!

Texturally this is not quite a cheesecake either. I associate cheesecakes with having a rich dense filling. This cheeseless cheesecake has a 'lighter' filling, as the photo shows.

But it is delicious. I can imagine yogurt chocolate cheesecake will produce a better texture. I will try this next time.

If you are keeping an eye on costs, this cheesecake is cheaper since Greek or Turkish yogurt is much cheaper than cream cheese. This means you can have 3-4 slices, with no guilt. But don’t blame me if you notice the effects later. The recipe is available here.

Lazy Daisy Cake Recipe

Lazy Daisy Cake

At high school I lived for a year in the hostel. And that meant eating hostel food. Generally high school hostels are not renowned for putting out food that makes you jump with excitement. If you lived in a hostel, you will know what I am talking about. But I didn't dislike the food as much as other students. Maybe because I only lived for one year? Or its my taste buds.

Surely there were some dishes that even I could not stand. One that instantly comes to mind is beef olives. But there are a few dishes that I still have fond memories of. One of them was a simple plain cake with a crunchy coconut topping. I absolutely loved it. It was served in a bowl with a generous amount of custard.

I decided to search for this cake and came across lazy daisy cake, which matched the description. I don’t know where the name comes from. Perhaps a lazy lady called Daisy came up with the recipe. Irrespective of the interesting name, the cake is absolutely delicious.

My only criticism of the recipe is the level of sweetness. I used about a third less sugar than suggested by the recipe, and it was still really sweet. Next time I will use even less sugar. The recipe is available here.
