Nutritional values

Here you can get the fat defused version of granny's butter cream mocha cake: 1 kg yoghurt in the cream provides plenty of calcium and thus promotes bone density. The lactic acid bacteria have a calming effect on the intestines.

You would like to save even more fat? Then replace half of your whole milk yoghurt with lean. If the reduction of sugar is more important to you, then you can prepare the cake with about 2/3 of the indicated amount of sugar.
