Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place milk and powdered milk into the TM bowl. Heat 25 min/90ºC/speed 3.

    2. Remove mixing bowl lid and allow milk to cool to 37ºC (approx 1 hr).

    3. Remove any skin that may have formed on the surface. 

    4. Pour a small amount of the cooled milk into a jug/bowl and combine gently with the natural yoghurt until no lumps remain. Add the mixture to the remaining milk in the mixing bowl and heat 20 min/37ºC/speed 2.

    5. Pour 150g+ of the mixture into a small container and seal. This is the culture for the next batch.

    6. Mix the sugar and vanilla until dissolved.

    7. Pour a small amount of the rest of the milk into a bowl and stir the sugar mixture, then add to the remainder of the milk. Pour into container/s and seal.

    8. Wrap yoghurt and culture in tea-towel (or similar) and leave to rest undisturbed (in a cold oven, with the light on) for 6-8 hours. 

    9. Refrigerate for several hours before serving. 






I package mine in individual servings of 100g (using baby plastic containers).

Starter culture can be used instead of the natural yoghurt.  

Vanilla bean paste can be used with or instead of the vanilla essence. 

UHT milk can be used, making steps 1 - 3 obsolete. Begin at step 4, adding the powdered milk then. 

Having the light on in the cold oven helps the incubation so it is not too cold, particularly in winter. I make mine in the evening and leave it overnight.
