A much healthier and easier take on a creme brulee (inspired by Stephanie Alexander), that tastes just as good. I love this dessert.


You'll Need

  • 4 rhubarb stems, chopped into 3cm lengths
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup thick Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbs brown sugar


Pre-heat oven to 180C

Place the chopped rhubarb into a baking dish and sprinkle with the caster sugar. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Spoon the rhubarb in a single layer into a shallow dish/dishes (I used tapas style plates) cover the rhubarb with yoghurt, then with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

Sprinkle the brown sugar over the set yoghurt until no yoghurt can be seen and smooth over the top with the back of a spoon.

Place the dishes on a tray and place directly under a hot grill to caramelise and bubble up, or alternatively use a blow torch if you have one.

It’s important that you keep an eye on the caramelising process as it can burn in seconds.

Serve immediately.
