Yogurt For Coconut Snowball Cake

Asked by Gemhalljan. Answered on 24th July 2021

Full question

The Coconut Snowball Cake is so divine, the icing is melt in your mouth. I've also made it as a plain cake without the icing. If I can't find coconut milk yogurt, will regular yogurt do or what is the best substitution?

Our answer

Nigella's Coconut Snowball Cake (from AT MY TABLE is for coconut lovers. It has a moist, coconut-flavoured cake that is enrobed in a light marshmallowy icing and sprinkled with extra coconut. The coconut milk yogurt in the cake batter helps to add moisture and flavour.

If you can't find coconut milk yogurt then we suggest substituting full fat (whole milk/5%) Greek yogurt plus one teaspoon of coconut extract. Coconut milk yogurt has a higher fat content than most regular yogurts so Greek yogurt is the best alternative and we would avoid using low fat or fat-free (non-fat/0%) yogurt.
