Yogurt Pot Cake With Different Sized Pot

Asked by brinky. Answered on 1st June 2020

Full question

My yogurt pot is 170g - if I go with the ‘pot’ measurements for the Yogurt Pot Cake should I leave the eggs as they are or add one? This time I took out a little bit of yogurt and didn’t fill the pot completely with the other ingredients.

Our answer

Nigella's Yogurt Pot Cake (from NIGELLISSIMA) is made with a small pot of yogurt and then most of the other ingredients are measured using the pot itself. This is Nigella's version of an old Italian recipe and, as Nigella mentions in the introduction, the original recipe used 3 eggs for a slightly smaller pot but the eggs then were probably slightly smaller than modern eggs.

NIgella uses a 150g yogurt pot. For a slightly larger pot we suspect that if you are using UK large eggs then 3 eggs will probably still be sufficient. If you have smaller eggs than this then it may be a good idea to add one extra yolk to the eggs. If you have a carton of mixed size eggs and are not sure of the sizes then large eggs weigh 63g-73g each and medium eggs weigh 53g-63g. The weights include the shells. However, as we have not tested the recipe with the larger quantities we are unable to guarantee the results.
