Yoghurt cake with sour cherry preserves

This yoghurt cake recipe seems like another one easy cake recipe with a taste of Greece, but, in fact, it ends up to be something like an addiction. The simple crust is made out of just two ingredients: biscuits and butter. The cream is made out of four: gelatine, yoghurt, white chocolate and whipping cream. Finally, you top it with sour cherry preserves (“spoon sweet”) that climaxes its special taste.
