Celebrate with Frozen Yogurt Chocolate Cake

All growing up, my mom made us a Frozen Yogurt Chocolate Cake for our birthday. It is THE cake for birthdays! We all love it, especially my dad. So to set the mood of celebration, I’m sharing this recipe with you. Make it for the next birthday in your home- or just a weekend dessert idea. You’re going to love it! Trust me on this one. The chocolate cake is moist and flavorful and the frozen yogurt just melts in your mouth.

Ingredients for cake:

  • 1 pkg. chocolate cake mix

Method for cake:

Mix and pour batter into 2 or 3 rounds and bake as directed on the box. Once the cakes have cooled, take each layer out of their pans and freeze until firm, (couple of hours). This helps with handling them when they get placed on top of each other. If your using 2 rounds, slice them into 4 layers. If you used 3 rounds, keep them as is. (You can make this cake simply as cupcakes or in a 9×13 pan as well.)

Yogurt Topping:

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream – whip until very stiff & sweeten with sugar
  • 3 cartons of cherry yogurt – pre-stirred colorful & firm, Yoplait works really well. (Any flavor of yogurt will do, cherry just has a bright pink color.)

When you’re ready to serve this frozen cake, pull it from the freezer 15 to 20 minutes before to thaw. It’s fun to see the contrast in colors from the dark chocolate and pink yogurt. It makes a great Ice Cream Cake alternative.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday to you and Jordan!!! The 17th is my mom’s birthday too! I hope you had a great day! We need get together and celebrate…maybe a girls’ night of legwarmers, jelly bracelets and Pretty in Pink to reminisce on the good ol’ days (again)!

  2. Aww what a lovely idea for a birthday cake! I can’t believe you have the same birthday as your husband too, how cute! Does he like this cake too? Happy birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday! My husband and I share a birthday too. He’s about 10 hours older. My kids think all parents only have one birthday. But I agree I think it’s not as cute as it seems. We usually flip flop who gets to make breakfast in bed and who gets to make the other’s favorite dinner.
    Hope you both have a great day

  4. Happy birthday to you two!! Hope you get to go out and celebrate tonight. That cake looks sooo yummy. I made the chocolate peanut butter bars last night…WOW! MMMMMMMM! Thanks for sharing your fabulous recipes!

  5. Thanks for the delicious recipe! Happy Birthday too Marie :) I just celebrated mine on the tenth, my son on the 12th. We still have two more birthdays to go this month! I’ll need this recipe?

  6. Feliz Cumpleaños !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =)

    May you have a wonderful and healthy year ahead of you. Oh and a very happy b-day to the hubby as well

  7. Happy Birthday! I love cherries and chocolate. I’m going to have to try this. Have you ever tried it with other flavors? I’m thinking lemon would be great!

  8. My husband and I share a birthday as well. The difference is that I’m two years older and he never lets me forget it. And we agree … it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!

    Have a wonderful day.
