Strawberry cheese cake for 1 (or 2).

I was seriously inspired by the idea of single-serve cheese cakes. However, I had ideas of taking an European spin on it: first, I replaced the cream cheese and yogurt with Greek yogurt which makes it lighter, I added some vanilla, omitted the crust (honestly, just because I did not have any Graham crackers at home) and replaced it with strawberries. It is also baked in a toaster oven for 20 min. The results? It was gone in 20 seconds after these pictures were taken….

Single-serve Strawberry Cheesecake

  • 1 cup of 0% Fage Greek yogurt (or Chobani, or other Greek yogurt)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TB sugar  (or 1 teaspoon sugar, a few drops of stevia syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, halved

Preheat toaster oven to 325F. Mix the Greek yogurt, egg, sugar, flour, and vanilla extract, until well-combined (start with Greek yogurt and egg, mix them first, then add the others, and mix in each ingredient first).

In a tiny spring form, line the bottom with strawberries (spraying the pan is not necessary).

Pour the Greek yogurt mixture over it, and bake for 20 minutes.

Loosen the cake with a sharp knife from the pan wall, and cool for about 1h. Remove the spring part, and serve.
