Frozen Yogurt Cake

Ciao! Last weekend I decided to make a really light and refreshing cake, the frozen yogurt cake! It's the perfect cake for summer, it doesn't require any baking and it's really easy to make. For all my Italian readers here you can find the recipe: Giallo Zafferano. I will write down the recipe in english so everybody can try and make it, trust me it's delicious!

for the crust
280gr Mc Vitie's Digestive cookies
2 tbs brown sugar
170gr butter

for the yogurt filling
700gr of yogurt (choose one that already contains sugar)
6 tbs milk
300 ml heavy cream
12 gr sheets of gelatin

Put the cookies in the mixer and finely crush them. Melt the butter, and mix it with the cookies' crumbs and the brown sugar. Line the pan with parchment paper and press the mixture on the bottom evenly. Put in fridge for 30 minutes.

Put the sheets of gelatin in cold water for 10 minutes till they get soft. In the meantime make the milk hot, but it doesn't have to boil. Then squeeze the gelatin to remove excess water and put it in the milk, mix very well until it melts completely. Now take the heavy cream and whip it until it becomes very fluffy. 

Now you can put all together, the yogurt, the whipped cream and the milk with melted gelatin. Mix carefully with a spatula.

Take the pan out of the fridge and pour the filling onto the base. Now put back in the fridge for at least 3 or 4 hours. The gelatin should make it solidify. 

You can garnish with fresh fruit or syrup, I used mixed berries syrup.

Enjoy! Have a great week!
Love, Fede
