Baked Yoghurt

This is one of my absloute favourite home-made desserts. It is simple but very tasty. Make it at home for a special family treat, or if serving to guests, bake the yoghurt in individual ramekins. A delicious and effortless dessert reminiscent of cheesecake it goes wonderfully well with the sweet flavours of the honeyed nuts and fruit. Also lovely as a sweet breakfast with fresh fruit, muesli and a little honey.

Preparation time: 30mins (+ 1 hour to strain the yoghurt)
Serves 4-6

  • 2½ cups of plain natural set yoghurt
  • 1½ cups of sweetened* condensed milk
  • ½ cup of plump dried apricots, diced
  • ¼ cup of pistachio nuts, shelled and roughly diced
  • 1-1½ tbs honey

Pour the natural yoghurt into a sieve and leave this to sit covered over a bowl for at least an hour in the refrigerator. This will drain off the excess liquid in the yoghurt and leave you with a wonderfully thick and creamy mixture.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

In a large bowl combine the thickened yoghurt and the condensed milk until smooth.

Pour into a medium sized baking dish or individual ramekins and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until set. Baking time will depend on the size of the dish used so keep an eye on the cooking time.

Meanwhile in a small sauce pan; over low heat add the honey and a teaspoon or two of water. Once the honey has melted add the apricots and pistachios.

Cook over a low heat until the apricots just start to golden and the mixture becomes fragrant; 2-3 minutes.

Serve the baked yoghurt while still warm topped with the honeyed fruit and nut. Or alternatively the yohgurt can be baked ahead of time and served cold from the fridge.

Sounds really good! But I have a question: what type of condensed milk you use? Sweetened or unsweetend? Thanks :)

Hi Egle!! For this particular recipe I used sweetened but have used both in the past… *really depends on what you serve it with and how sweet your tooth is : ) I will amend the recipe though and thank you kindly for the feedback!!

What exactly is natural set yogurt? This dessert sounds really good but I don’t want to make it with improper ingredients!

Trudy (veggie num num) January 21, 2010 at 9:40 pm

Hi Jessica, glad you like the sound of the recipe!!

Natural Set Yoghurt is a smooth, creamy traditional yoghurt set naturally with cultures, usually in the tub you buy it in. That means there is no added gelatin or other setting agents and it tastes, looks and is just the way yoghurt should be.

Just check the label; a good plain natural set yoghurt should contain simply whole milk and cultures; no added gelatin, sugar, artificial colours, flavours and/or preservatives… hope this is helpful : )

do you think greek yogurt without straining would work in this recipe because it is naturally thick?

Trudy ~ Veggie num num July 22, 2011 at 7:58 am

Hi Jellybean, although Greek yoghurt is already thick I would still recommend straining it for at least 30 minutes to get rid of any excess liquid that forms in yoghurt once it has been sitting for any length of time. It’s a very simple process and worth the effort. Hope you enjoy this super tasty recipe :)

The photo is what got me to save this,,,,just delish to look at. I was doing sugars at the time and have since given up on all sweetners other then fruit/grains(1 month),,,but my greek yogurt past due date came up yesterday sooooo I just finished this decadent treat warm out of the oven for lunch AND it was over the top! Didn’t feel guilty ‘ cause I did a 10 K run and had a huge protein/vegie juice too!
Love your recipes/site<3
