Yoghurt-Cream Dessert

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Syrinx

A very nice pudding, which a German friend of the family used to serve to us as children. More recent experimentation has shown that I like it a lot without any sugar at all, so do feel free to adjust or omit the sugar (taste as you go along).

Made for PAC fall-07 and what a wonderful surprise. Amazing how something so simple can be so good and look so elegant. This will be a favorite from now on and I'll be sure to pull it out whenever I really want to impress company. The only changes I made was to omit the raisins (hate, hate them) and use strawberries & blueberries as that's what's ripe now in my garden and added 1/2 tsp vanilla to the cream when whipping. Thanks Syrinx for what is going to be my favorite dessert from now on. Wish I could give you 10 stars

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb natural yoghurt
  • 8 fluid ounces double cream (heavy cream)
  • 2 ounces icing sugar, to taste (optional)
  • 2 bananas, sliced finely
  • 4 ounces raisins


  1. Whip the cream until it is stiff.
  2. Fold the cream gently into the yoghurt with the icing sugar. The amount of icing sugar (powdered sugar or confectioners' sugar) you need depends on your personal tastes for sweetness - this dish is actually very nice without any sugar at all, so how much you use is entirely up to you!
  3. Stir in the sliced bananas and the raisins.
  4. Refrigerate until serving, then serve in small bowls.
