Using up greek yoghurt

arizonakiwi, May 11, 9:02am
I have a lge tub of greek yoghurt I am wanting to use up. Any baking ideas would be appreciated. (I don't have any lemons so I can't make a yummy lemon yoghurt cake)

Make a slice with berries in it, and serve pieces with yoghurt on top. Very Nice.

arizonakiwi, how about making muffins? - of any kind - just use the yoghurt instead of the milk quantity in your favourite muffin recipe(s) BUT unless the yoghurt is very runny/thin (which Greek yoghurt isn't) if the recipe states e. g. 1 cup milk then I find that I need 1 cup yoghurt+about ¼ cup milk to get the same consistency as if using milk only.

Hope that helps. :-))

Thanks 245sam - great idea. next challenge is to get motivated tonight and make a batch of cinnamon and apple muffins to take to work tomorrow morning.

you're welcome arizonakiwi - I wish I was one of your workmates because I'd gladly line up for a cinnamon and apple muffin - yum! !

245sam... I decided it is time to get back into the kitchen and be a bit more domesticated... . it is so easy not to cook or bake any more... Homemade bean salad for lunch today (very yummy) and chicken in the crock pot for dinner tonight, fresh muffins for tomorrow morning - my husband is going to begin to wonder what is wrong with me.

Well done - keep up the good work, arizonakiwi. I'm sure you're DH won't complain about all the good homemade meals and baking, and you're obviously enjoying them yourself too, so good on you. :-))

layer thinly sliced potato and kumara in an oven proof bowl and cover with a cup of pasta sauce, then a layer of grated cheese. Mix a cup of greek yoghurt with one egg and spread on top and bake at 180 for about 40 mins or till top is set.

This is beautiful and a firm favourite in my family since I made it the first time:
