Yes I do this sometimes!! And eat it while it is frozen (leave it outside for several minutes before you tackle it so it won't be so rock solid...) It is indeed like "frozen yogurt", I quite like it... (Attn: it works less nicely with lowfat, fatfree version though...)

I just think it's a great desert with a fancy cookie or slice of plain cake and some fresh fruit if ya got any. Something light and fruity after a good meal is all I want for a finale.

Charlie D, I wouldn't know where to begin to use yogurt to make pancakes. Any suggestions?JMediger, if I were to leave the yogurt out all night, wouldn't it go bad? After I drain it, can I put it back in the fridge or should I leave it out? How long is it food after it's been drained?

Thanks all for your suggestions!!

Leave it overnight in the fridge to drain. I put a coffee filter inside a colander & put the yogurt on top of the filter, put a plate under the colander for the water to drain onto. (I think it originally? called for cheesecloth, but I used a coffee filter.) Use the yogurt cheese the next day for recipe of choice.

I've used low fat. Trying to remember a rule about using or not using yogurt that contains acidofilous? (can't remember the exact name of the ingredient). You could do a search on yogurt cheese.

Years ago there were a few cooking shows re cutting the fat, & yogurt cheese was used in so many recipes - even cheesecake. If I recall, it was also used as a thickening agent.

Re the recipe for strawberry yogurt pound cake, thinking about adding in some chopped strawberries too - or fruit of choice.

Yogurt base pancakes:



1 cup of yogurt

1 cup of flour

1 large or extra large egg

1 pinch salt

1 t baking powder or baking soda, but then you'd have to poor some vinegar over it, like a 2 t spoons or about that much, you'll see a reaction, soda will start foaming up, mix well until reaction stops.

1 table spoon oil.



+ OIL FOR FRYING



Mix everything well. The batter should be sour cream, maybe just a bit thinner. Warm up the frying pan, I like to use a lot of oil, well just to cover the bottom of the pan. But you can just use as much as you normally would. Take a serving spoon and spoon the batter on the pan, fry on both sides. Serve with your favorite syrup, lots of butter and/or sour cream.
