DessertServes 8

Why not put last year’s Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards Supreme Champion Hesper Farm Skyr to good use this bank holiday weekend with this Black Cherry Skyrcake (like a cheesecake) recipe using the North Yorkshire farm’s Scandinavian style yoghurt in this quick and simple dessert.


450g Black Cherry Hesper Farm Skyr
500ml whipping (or double) cream
300g digestive biscuits
140g unsalted butter


  1. Crush the biscuits by smashing them with a rolling pin. Melt the butter and mix into the biscuit crumbs.
  2. Press the crumbs firmly into a round 23cm spring form tin.
  3. Whip the cream in a bowl until it forms soft peaks then mix skyr carefully into the cream until fully combined.
  4. Pour this mixture onto the biscuit base in the tin and smooth the surface.
  5. Cover the tin with cling-film or place it in a sealed container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving
  6. Decorate or serve with fresh cherries.
