Ideas on baking using strawberry yoghurt... Page 1 / 2

b190, May 22, 1:30am
For some reason I have 11 pots of strawberry yoghurts which expire on Wednesday. We won't get through half that many so i'm hoping to bake something yummy using them. Does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking chocolate muffins with yoghurt perhaps........?

Yoghurt can be used for quite a long time after the best before date just fine :)As long as it looks and smells fine then it's fine to eat.

If you cannot use it yourself, give it to some kids near by.

b190, May 22, 2:34am
I have 3 kids, but we won't get through them all so I was just wondering if anyone had any recipe ideas. Thanks guinevere2 that's good to know that they haven't had it right on the used by date:) I just made cupcakes with 3 pots in it. So far so good.

replace the sour cream in these

Sour cream cupcakes
You'll need
150g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
1/4 cup rice flour
Here's how
1. Preheat the oven to moderate (180C). Line two deep, 12-hole patty tins with paper patty cases.
2. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and creamy. Gradually beat in the vanilla essence and eggs.
3. Use a large metal spoon to fold in the sour cream and combined sifted flours, until just smooth.
4. Spoon the mixture evenly into the patty cases. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cupcakes are golden on top. Test a few with a skewer - if it comes out clean they are cooked. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Spread with citrus glacé (recipe follows) and decorate with sugared wattle flowers, if desired.

Chocolate choc sour cream Layer Cake
Fills 3 8inch round pans

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup butter, softened
16ozlight brown sugar

Sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add to chocolate mixture, alternating with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour. Beat after every addition until blended.

the batter is going to look extremely thin and you might think you've messed up, but it's going to be perfect :)
Pour batter into paper lined cake pans.
Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes cakes.
Place baked cakes on cooling rack for 15 minutes before removing from pan to completely cool

Alison Holsts double chocolate muffins. Make them and freeze them.

1 & 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder

100g butter melted (can use 100 grams of oil instead. Need to weigh it)
1 egg
1 cup yoghurt (I use fruity youghurt)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 - 1/2 cup choc chips

Pre heat oven at 220c fan forced.
Sift all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl. Mix wet to dry and mix till only just comined. Put into muffin cups and bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Once cool freeze them and take them out as needed.

If it was me i would just pop them in the freezer and use them as normal as the date would be held... Useful for keeping the rest of the lunch cool... and defrosted be lunchtime...

leave out the lemon juice and rind
Lemon Yoghurt Cake Alison Holst's

Ingredients
• 1¾ cups sugar
• finely grated rind of 2 lemons
• 2 large eggs
• 1 cup canola or other oil
• ½ tsp salt
• 1 cup plain yoghurt
• 2 - 3 Tbsp lemon juice
• 2 cups self-raising flour
Comments
This light, lemony cake contains oil rather than butter, and is very easy to mix, either in a food processor, or in a bowl using a whisk or fork.
Method
Heat oven to 190°C (180°C fanbake), with the rack just below the middle.
Spray a 23cm (7 cup capacity) ring pan with non-stick spray, then coat evenly with sieved flour.
If using a food processor, put the sugar and finely grated lemon rind in the bowl.
Add the eggs, oil and salt, then process until thick and smooth. Add the yoghurt and lemon juice and blend enough to mix. Add the flour and process just enough to combine.
To mix by hand, grate all the coloured peel from the lemons into a large bowl. Add the sugar, eggs and oil, then whisk together. Add the salt, yoghurt and lemon juice and mix again. Sift in the flour and fold in with a stirrer until just combined.
Pour cake mixture into prepared ring pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the sides start to shrink, the centre springs back when pressed, and a skewer comes out clean. Leave for about 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack. Cool.
Serve with sliced kiwi fruit or fresh berries and whipped cream or yoghurt.
Variation: For a lower fat cake, replace ¼ cup of the oil with ¼ cup of extra yoghurt.

yummy ideas ^^^

You can also freeze it - whisk it until it doubles in quantity and then pour into an ice cream container.

books4nz, May 23, 12:50am
Made this recently - think I got it from here - use your strawberry yoghurt and any dried fruit in place of the apricots.

Apricot Brownie

Mix 1 cup chopped dried apricots and 1 cup apricot yoghurt.
Melt 100gms butter in large bowl, add 1 cup brown sugar.
Add 3 eggs and mix well.
Add 1 tsp vanilla and apricot mix.
Sift and add 1 & 1/4 cups flour and 2 tsp baking powder.
Spread into baking paper lined sponge roll tin.
Bake at 180°C about 40 minutes till comes back when lightly pressed.
Serve warm as a dessert, or cool to use as a Brownie slice.
Dust with icing sugar.

I agree with poster number two

Yoghurt is fine well passed it's use by date. Six weeks and it will still be OK.
Remember that a "best before" date isn't a "toxic after" date.
