3-Ingredient caramelized yogurt cake takes almost no effort
This is so simple to make. Most yogurt cakes come out cakey but not this one. This has a consistency closer to cheesecake and texture that's oh-so-heavenly.

No, this is not the yogurt cake you think it is. Most yogurt cake recipes you’ll find are really, well, cake-y and spongey in texture. This one is smooth and creamy, almost like a cheesecake.

Ready to dig in? Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cup sweetened plain yogurt or flavored yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp cornstarch

Pour the yogurt into a bowl.

If you’re using unsweetened plain yogurt, you can add white sugar or sugar substitute of your choice. You can estimate how much sugar you want to put in depending on how much of a sweet tooth you are.

For those who are aiming to go healthy, a teaspoon or two might do.

Add the eggs and mix with the yogurt.

Then, sift the cornstarch in the mixture. It is important to sift it to avoid clumps forming in your batter and your cake.

Mix thoroughly until smooth and creamy.

Moisten an 8-inch baking pan or mold.

Cut a baking sheet and crumple it. This will give a nice texture and attractive shape to your cake. It also makes it easier to peel off once it’s cooked and chilled.

Next, cover the pan with the crumpled baking sheet.

Pour in the batter and give it a little shake and tap to ensure that there are no air bubbles there. You want your yogurt cake to be solid and firm on the inside.

Bake it in the oven at 338 degrees Fahrenheit.

The baking time depends on what kind of oven you have. Ideally, you have to bake it for at least 35 minutes, but you can go for 50 minutes if you think your cake is not yet cooked.

You’ll know when it’s cooked when the edges are nicely browned.

Once it’s cooked, put it in the fridge for at least an hour.

This will help the cake settle and not end up gooey and messy on your plate.

If you think it’s chilled enough, go ahead and take a slice of this creamy yogurt cake that just melts in your mouth.

Other home cooks who tried the recipe had some suggestions for you to try.

This one is a healthier alternative as she used a non-fat (0%) yogurt along with a sugar substitute and potato starch. She said it is like a baked cheesecake, so you might want to try that, too.

This one added some more flavor.

She added honey, cinnamon, and a bit of salt to her version of the yogurt cake. She also hoped to try adding a little zest to it and topping it with sour cream. That should be interesting.

With all these alternatives, you can have different versions of yogurt cake that you can enjoy at home.
