Baked Vanilla Yogurt

This afternoon, I suddenly had this appetition for something sweet. I have a sweet tooth and it makes its presence felt too often lately. The Baked Vanilla Yogurt recipe was buried under unimportant papers in some remote corner of a drawer. I had jotted it down from a magazine during a flight long time ago. Anyway, this is so simple that you will not need to write it down somewhere for reference.

This creamy dessert takes hardly any time for preparation. You just need to whisk together all the five ingredients and pour into ramekins and bake for some 15 to 20 minutes. It tastes so good and can be easily altered too. Like, if you wish you can add fresh fruits, dry fruits or even some jam of your choice.

If I have guests coming over unannounced, then I know for sure that I will be serving this flavoured yogurt for dessert. Actually I had made this quite a few times for M, but never for anybody else. Also, it never occured to me to post it here. It's so simple that maybe I thought it's not worth an entire post. But today after making it I started clicking the pictures, which then, changed my mind.

I have mentioned the baking time from 15 to 20 minutes, so please adjust it according to the size of the ramekins or anything else that you are using. You need to bake it just until it's set.

Baked Vanilla Yogurt


Yogurt, 200 gm
Condensed Milk, 200 ml
Fresh Cream, 100 ml
Golden Syrup, 2 tbsp.
Vanilla Essence, 1 tsp.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150° C. Whisk together all the five ingredients and pour into ramekins.

  2. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Cool and bring to room temperature. I leave it in the oven and allow it to cool. Refrigerate and then serve chilled.

Sometimes, I also like to garnish this dessert with chopped pistachio nuts or almonds before serving; for that little Indian touch to it.


  1. Very attractive and irresistible dessert.

  2. Love simple desserts like this! Think it would taste even better with some fresh fruit and vanilla wafers!

  3. I have never heard of a baked yoghurt dessert! This is really cool.. and simple! Is golden syrup similar to corn syrup? I have 2 very good bottles of corn syrup and maple syrup. YOu think either of them might work?

    1. Yes Swati, you can substitute golden syrup with corn or maple syrup. You can also use honey. But here, I would really go for corn syrup as the substitute.

  4. Might make it this weekend

  5. that's it? sounds so simple! think i'll substitute sugar syrup for golden syrup though. a bit wary about cooking honey and all

  6. This is yet another dessert I would love to have anytime ... I love yoghurt based desserts

    great website you have Arundhuti .. glad to follow you, stay in touch :)

  7. Hi, I made this dessert the other day and hubby just loved it. I substituted honey for golden syrup...perhaps that is why I didn't get the colour you did. I am going to posted it on my blog and will be siting your post too. Thanks for the recipe.
