What can be used instead of coconut milk yogurt for the Lemon Tendercake? I live in Cyprus and we do not have that, we have coconut milk in tins but that is all.
Nigella's Lemon Tendercake With Blueberry Compote (from AT MY TABLE) is a moist cake made with coconut milk and topped with a coconut milk yogurt and blueberry compote. The use of plant-based milk and yogurt makes the cake vegan. Unfortunately there is not an alternative for the canned coconut milk used in the cake as coconut milk has a high fat content and other plant-based milks and cow's milk all have much lower fat contents, which would affect the texture of the cake.
Coconut milk yogurt is cultured in the same way as regular yogurt but is made with coconut milk rather than cow's milk. It is usually slightly thicker and sweeter than a cow's milk yogurt. As it is in the topping it would be possible to use an alternative, though the yogurt needs to be thick enough so that it can be spread on top of the cake without soaking in or running off. Whole milk (full fat) Greek yogurt would be a possible alternative. It doesn't have the slight coconut flavour which works well with the cake, but you could add a drop or two of coconut extract to the Greek yogurt if you like. You may also need to add a teaspoon or so of extra icing (confectioners') sugar. Otherwise you could use a thick coconut flavoured cow's milk yogurt. However if you use one of these options then please bear in mind that the cake will no longer be vegan.
