Cuisine American, british


For the baked yoghurt

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 200 g fresh cream
  • 200 g condensed milk
  • 200 g yoghurt plain

For the Cointreau Orange Compote

  • 2 tablespoons Orange Zest
  • 2 - 3 oranges
  • 1/4 cup sugar (you can increase this if you want, I like low in my compote)
  • 1/2 teaspoon rock salt
  • 2 Star Anise
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau


  • n a pan, mix all the Compote ingredients together and bring to boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer till the oranges are cooked and the mixture looks a little (for the lack of a correct word syrupy?). This will take about 12-15 minutes. Keep it aside for cooling
  • Split open the vanilla bean and scrape off the inside (hey don't throw away that bean yet, you can make an excellent vanilla essence with that, just soak it in 1/4 cup of vodka, keep in an airtight bottle and forget for 5 week and voila you have a brilliant essence readyu2026 but we digress.. ;) ).
  • Mix it with the yoghurt and blend till smooth.
  • Mix in the cream and the condensed milk to the above mixture, till everything is well blended
  • Pour in ramekins or in a bigger pie dish and a bake at a preheated oven at 120C (the low temperature is important to help yoghurt stay stable) for about 15-20 mins till just about set, the ramekins may get done at 15 mins and the pie dish at 20. So do keep an eye after about 14 mins :)
  • Serve chilled topped with the compote
