Yoghurt:
Yoghurt has to be my all-time favourite dairy product. I love it! There are many culinary uses, both dessert and savoury, but my favourite is a simple dessert of Yoghurt, coffee, and Gingernut biscuits - delicious!

My all time favourite dessert is economical, quick to make, and perfect for children to prepare. 

Recipe: Rose's Yoghurt Tiramisu  - serves 6 

Ingredients: 
  • 1 kilo Greek Yoghurt - I make my own Mango flavoured thick Greek-style in a yoghurt maker. But a processed ready-made sweet thick Greek yoghurt will work too.
  • 3/4 cup strong coffee - espresso strength. 
  • 1 packet Griffins Gingernuts - spicy ginger biscuits ( cookies)  perfect for dunking into coffee. 

Method: 
  • Spoon 2 tablespoons yoghurt into 6 tumbler glasses - lightly shake/bang glass to level out yoghurt
  • Dunk 1 x biscuit in coffee then place on top of yoghurt
  • Dunk another biscuit place on top of first one - now you have 2 biscuits on top of yoghurt
  • Place another 4 tablespoons yoghurt on top of biscuits - forming delicious layers 
  • Place 1 x biscuit on top of the yoghurt then press in lightly - so yoghurt forms a ring around the middle of the biscuit 
  • Spoon 2 -3 tablespoons of coffee onto the exposed biscuit 
  • Place in the fridge at least 4 hours - overnight works best so the biscuits soak up the flavours and soften into a delectable 'cake' mixture and the yoghurt forms a delicious 'cheesecake' style dessert. 
For an change substitute biscuits for fruit cake - OMG the cake will absorb more coffee and melt into the yoghurt whilst in the fridge - amazing this way, just amazing! I make this in containers and store them in the fridge - kids love it as a treat!
