The frozen yogurt cake is an easy to make dessert with a crunchy biscuit base and soft yogurt cream that does not require baking. You can also prepare it without isinglass and accompany it with fresh seasonal fruit.
Prepare the base of the cake: put the biscuits in a blender and reduce them to powder. Then add the melted butter, the sugar and blend until you have obtained a moist mixture.
Grease a 20 cm diameter cake pan and pour the mixture. Press the mixture with the back of a spoon to create the base of your frozen yogurt cake.
Now, take care of the cold cream.
Soften the isinglass in a small bowl with cold water. Let it melt in a small saucepan with two tablespoons of yogurt and a tablespoon of milk. Turn off the heat as soon as it has melted and let it cool. Meanwhile, whip the cream and sugar it with two tablespoons of confectioner’s sugar. Add the yogurt and the warmed isinglass. Blend everything with a kitchen whisk, very slowly and with movements from bottom to top. Once ready, transfer the mixture into the cake pan and level it well with the help of a spoon.
Decorate the frozen yogurt cake with the juice of the black cherries in syrup and some black cherries on top. Put the cake in the refrigerator and let it harden for about three hours. If it is too hard, just keep it ten minutes outside the refrigerator before eating it.
You can prepare a light frozen yogurt cake without cream, just use Greek yogurt instead of the normal one. Use half a kilogram of yogurt and 50cl of milk, so you will not need to put the cream. If you want to do a lactose-free cake, instead of yogurt you can use rice milk and margarine.
To make a gluten-free cake, you can buy gluten-free biscuits to make the base. If you can’t find them, you can also replace the biscuit base with a shortcrust pastry made with gluten-free flours, such as rice flour.
To make a frozen yogurt cake with fruit, you can use fruit yogurt for the cream and then decorate the cake with fresh fruit.
To make a frozen yogurt cake with chocolate, add three tablespoons of hazelnut cream in the filling. And then sprinkle the cake with sweetened cocoa powder.
If the cream is too liquid, it can depend on two things: the used yogurt is not creamy enough, or the cream has not been properly whipped.
