Seven Jars Yogurt Cake, an Italian classic

Memory of the 90’s.
In those years I was at University.

In Bologna, I shared a flat with other students coming from all over Italy. I lived the life that each “fuorisede” (not born and raised in Bologna) students live, and I went to many Erasmus parties where I met people of all kinds and from all over the world. It has been the years when I started to cook because even if I love sandwiches, I couldn’t go on eating panini every day. Finally, I remember a recipe that me and all my friends made frequently.

It was a perfect merenda break for home where there were hungry students every afternoon. Maybe for this reason, it’s a recipe that’s very close to my heart still today.

About a 7 jars yogurt cake

I can’t forget how many times I made this cake called 7 jars (in Italian 7 vasetti, little jars) because you need to use your plastic yogurt container instead of the kitchen balance.

I used and use one Yomo container (Italian Yogurt made by Granarolo).

It was simple to make, light and delicious. It can be served with jam or gelato on the side.
It’s a perfect breakfast or afternoon dessert, but with something lighter and healthier!

Cooking suggestions

To make your own 7 jars even if you haven’t a yogurt container handy, you have to know that each one contains 125 g of yogurt and you need the same of sugar, 100 g of seeds oil, 160 g of flour and about 70 g of potato starch.

I prefer to cook this in a loaf pan, but any molds will work.
