Flourless Yogurt Cake – Easy to Make

This flourless yogurt cake is the best cake I ever made; it is creamy and incredibly light.

The news of Joe Biden's election was announced when I was baking this cake decorated with milk chocolate ganache. My children came into the kitchen, jumping and saying he had won Pennsylvania. Since my neighborhood is mostly Democratic, we heard fireworks and even people blowing horns in celebration for most of the day.

I saw many people celebrating, and some people were happy with the outcome but were still wary of the future. While I understand the need to still keep an eye on what’s happening,

I also think that many people will be able to celebrate, take a deep breath, relax for at least 24 hours, and enjoy it without thinking of the future just yet.

At the moment of the announcement, I felt as though a large weight had been lifted off the backs of the people around me and on the planet.

The people’s voices were heard. To swerve back to the topic of food, this cake coincidentally fit into the lightness category and helped brighten up the already relaxing day.

A flourless yogurt cake is a delicious, gluten-free option that's a light, moist, and flavorful option. Here's a simple recipe for you:

  • 14.1 ounces Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3.3 tablespoons potato starch
  • 3.3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • lemon zest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • milk chocolate ganache
    • Separate the yolks from the whites into two bowls.
    • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until they become foamy. (I recommend buying a mixer here if you do not yet have one to prepare the recipe.)
    • Add the potato starch, cornstarch, and baking powder to the mixture, mix everything well, and add the yogurt and grated lemon zest into the compost.
    • Beat the egg whites until stiff and add them to the compost slowly, incorporating them and being careful not to disassemble them.
    • Transfer the cake dough to a baking tray lined with parchment paper (diameter of 9 inches) and bake the cake in a preheated oven at 175°C (347°F) for 60 minutes.
    • When cooked, let it cool completely, remove the cake from the pan, and decorate it with the chocolate ganache.
