Mango Yogurt Cake
I am still trying to make the ultimate non-baked cheese cake and that was exactly what I did on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. More about that later. I had made 2 pans of biscuit base but as I only had enough Oreos for 1 cake, I had to decide what to do with the other base. I didn't want to leave it in the fridge just like that when I remembered babe showing me a site some time last week with the recipe for a yogurt cake. I checked all the ingredients and wallah.. I didn't exactly have everything in the list but I'll just have to make do.
The original yogurt recipe was from Tazz in the Kitchen. I had to improvise as I did not have all the items listed, or rather, I did not have them in sufficient quantities. I wonder what my test bunnies had to say about that...a rather funny mixture of taste probably.
Tazz's recipe has been reproduced below with my adjustments in green.
Ingredients for the base:
crumbs from 7 pieces of disgestive biscuits
40g melted butter
(i used the remains from the Oreo Cheesecake base)
Ingredients for the filling:
100g sugarless natural yogurt (mango flavored yogurt)
150ml yakult (natural flavored & apple flavored vitagen)
1 tbsp lemon juice
150ml non-diary whipping cream
1 tbsp gelatin
3 tbsp sugar (2 tbsp sugar since the yogurt and vitagen are already sweet)
Grated lemon zest (left this out)
2 large mangos, one for filling and the other for decoration
1/3 pkt Jello
120ml hot water
1/2 tsp gelatin
