Greek Yogurt “Cheesecake”

Prep time: 20 minutes

Bake time: 45-50 minutes

Materials:

  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
  • 4 large eggs separated into whites and yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries drained

Process:

  1. Preheat the oven to 365 and line a round pan (about 10 inch) with some parchement paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl add in the egg whites. Using an electric mixer whip the eggs until you start to get still peaks.
  3. Add in half of the sugar and continue to whip until all the sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add in the egg yolks and the remaining half of the sugar. Whip until the mixture is pale and fluffy (this takes some time so be patient).
  5. Add in the vanilla, Greek yogurt, potato starch and salt. Mix for a few seconds to make sure everything is incorporated but be careful not to overmix so the dough doens’t get too tough.
  6. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and top with the marachino cherries. You can also use any other fruit you’d like.
  7. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  8. Let the cake cool completely before removing. Cut up and ENJOY!

    Awesome recipe right here! Good decision to use Greek yogurt too, with its consistency similar to cream cheese. (Besides, both cream cheese and yogurt are milk by-products too haha!)

    (Also enjoying your accompanying videos with every recipe.)
