These cotton yoghurt small cakes are yummy as they’re light, moist and soft just like eating chilled cheesecake. They can be prepared with a few quick mixing and baked in a muffin pan. These cakes are made by using the egg separation method but you don’t have to steam bake them like in my previous post – Yogurt Blueberry cake that I shared 3 years ago. In fact I love both recipes, they’re equally good!

recipe adapted from here with some adjustments
- 4个 大鸡蛋，蛋黄蛋白分开
- 1小杯 天然优格/酸奶 （200毫升）
- 60克 中筋或低筋面粉
- ½茶匙 香草香精
- 1汤匙 柠檬汁

- 80克 细砂糖
- 预热烤箱至摄氏150度。 纸杯放入在玛芬烤盘内，备用。
- 放入预热烤箱烤约25-30分钟。 **蛋糕在烤的过程中会先膨胀然后略有回缩
- 烤好后的蛋糕连玛芬盘在桌面敲打几下，敲出热气 （这样可防蛋糕过度的收缩）。蛋糕待凉后撒上适量可可粉即可享用。
