Here is a yummy recipe which uses a new Ski yogurt instead of butter to make some deliciously light cake bites. It has been created by the food blogger behind Franglais Kitchen who won a competition run by Ski to create a recipe using their products
SKI Dessert Style Yogurt Lemon Cheescake Cake Bites, with Lemon Basil Syrup and Berries
Makes 24 Cake Bites
3 medium eggs
225g Caster Sugar
100g Ground Almonds
100g Self Raising Flour
225g Ski Dessert Style Yogurt in Lemon Cheesecake flavour
Grated zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 2 lemons
60g caster sugar
1 basil leaf
Preheat the oven to 170C.
Grease 2 mini muffin tins. (There is no butter in this cake so be sure to grease the baking tin well so it releases easily. You could also use cupcake cases to make life easy).
Place the eggs and caster sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric whisk till the mixture is pale and thickened (makes trails with a spoon). This takes about 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl mix the flour and almonds together.
Gently fold the Ski Dessert Style Yogurt in Lemon Cheesecake and lemon zest into the eggs using a spatula.
Then stir in the flour/almond mixture. Try to keep as much air in the mixture as you can so avoid over stirring.
Use a tablespoon and teaspoon to dispense the batter into 2 mini muffin tins (these need to be well greased).
Bake for around 20 minutes or until lightly browned and a skewer inserted into the cake bites comes out just about dry.
Whilst they are baking, heat the lemon juice, a torn basil leaf and the sugar in a small pan over low to medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove the basil.
Once the cakes are ready, carefully remove them from the tin onto a cooling rack.
Prick the cakes with a fork and then use a teaspoon to drizzle them with the lemon basil syrup.
Top each with berries and dust with icing sugar.
50 years of Dairy expertise lead to 2 brand new SKI Taste Experiences launching in September
New Ski Dessert Style Yogurt: Tangy Lemon Cheesecake with biscuit crunch // New Limited Edition Ski Fruits of the Forest Mousse
The experts at Ski know a thing or two about fruit yogurt – after all they were the first to serve yogurt with real fruit pieces back in 1963. Now they’re changing the rules of yogurt, once again, by combining the fruity attributes of creamy tasting, low fat yogurt with some of the nation’s favourite desserts: a limited edition series of Ski Dessert Style Yogurts, kicks off with new Lemon Cheesecake flavour.
The tangy, refreshing citrus flavours of real lemon in Ski Dessert Style Yogurt are infused with crunchy biscuit pieces, evoking the taste sensations of decadent lemon cheesecake. Each low fat serving (1g fat in 120g pot) contains 92 calories.
Ski Dessert Style Yogurt Lemon Cheesecake flavour is fantastically satisfying on its own, poured over fresh fruits or as a delicious addition to more elaborate desserts that will wow family and friends.
Ski Dessert Style Yogurt Lemon Cheesecake flavour will be available in Asda and selected Tesco stores from September. It is presented in 4 x 120g packs with a recommended retail price of £1.59.
Mouth Watering Fruits of the Forest in One Taste and Texture Sensation
In response to our insatiable love affair with luscious, fruit desserts, the fruit mad experts at Ski unveil a Limited Edition series of Ski Mousses, kicking off with new Limited Edition Ski Raspberry Mousse with Blackberry Sauce.
There’s not much Ski doesn’t know about fruit dairy treats – after all, it’s celebrating 50 years of innovation in 2013. New Limited Edition Ski Raspberry Mousse with Blackberry Sauce involves a unique swirling technology it has invented to create a seamless infusion of Blackberry sauce with a fluffy and creamy tasting raspberry mousse. The result: a gorgeously light yet indulgent, sorbet-style taste sensation with 77 calories per serving.
The new Ski Limited Edition series has been launched following the success of tropical and decadent Ski Coconut Mousse with Chocolate Sauce and the popularity of duo Ski Mousse Lemon with Meringue Style Sauce and Strawberry Mousse with Strawberry Sauce - both of which hit the British, everyday dessert scene last year.
Limited Edition Ski Raspberry Mousse with Blackberry Sauce will be available from September in Tesco and Sainsbury’s outlets nationwide. It is presented in 4 x 59g packs with a recommended retail price of £1.39.
