  2. To make the filling, combine the cream cheese, yoghurt, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and mix until well combined and smooth.
  3. For the cake, mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  4. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the egg and continue to beat in.
  5. Combine the yoghurt and buttermilk in a small jug and add to the egg mixture alternating with the dry ingredients.
