Chocolate biscuit pudding

This was my very first post[12 Oct '08] and there were no pics along with it. So I thought I'd better revive it because this pudding requires people to know it! ;D I would say the pudding demands it because I love this pudding! :D It's a very easy recipe, hardly takes anytime especially if you have fresh cream on hand. But yes! you will have to wait for it to set! Yes! hold onto your temptation! ;D

This is a recipe which I have been making for years now,can say the earlier day's recipe which still continues to be made :) It was sent to me by my aunt (especially for me... she did mention in the letter hehehe) So I used to make it everytime at home and finally I decided that I'll let Amma use it for her cookery class .So now it's offically a member of her recipe index! :)
Chocolate Biscuit Pudding
Recipe from Beeji Aunty

Ingredients:
Base:

Marie biscuit/Graham crackers: 200 g
Butter:100g
  • Powder the biscuits coarsely and mix it well with butter. Line a pudding dish with half of this mixture.

Chocolate sauce:
Milk: 1 1/2 cups
Sugar:1 cup
Cornflour/Cornstarch: 2 tbsp
Cocoa powder:3 tbsp
Vanilla essence:2 drops
  • Boil all the ingrdients together (except vanilla)and make a thick sauce.
  • Add vanilla once the sauce is slightly cooled.
  • Pour this over the prepared biscuit base.
  • Cover the sauce with the remaining biscuit mixture.

Topping:
Cream :200 ml
Chocolate vermicelli: as required.
  • Beat the cream untill soft peaks form and pour on top of the pudding and let it set in the refrigerator for 6 hrs.
  • Sprinkle chocolate vermicelli on top of it.
  • Serve it with vanilla ice cream.

Must say it's one of the biggest hit on Amma's cookery class recipe index ( actually everything is a hit, but since I gave it... I'm a bit partial :P ) We are making another batch of it today as well. This seems to be a big hit amongst Amma's catering customers and so we get regular orders for it! Is that convincing enough that this is a good one ???? ;D

Have a great week ahead! :)

Zaara said...

This looks yum! Definitely going to try it, what is chocolate vermicelli though? Is it like those chocolate sprinkles that go on cake icing or ice cream?

Vandana Sarah said...

Hi Ria,

im going to try out this one...will let u know how it goes/..my puddings dont usually turn out well...they become thick sometimes...is it bcos its overcooked ???

Hi! Ria.
I tried this recipe. the taste was awesome. But, had a question. My pudding didn't set. I mean, it was kind of watery...while serving, one couldn't see the different layers as I see in your pics. What do you think went wrong?

♥♥♥Ria♥♥♥ said...

Reny- It depends on what goes into the pudding. If it has cornflour,yes it is because of it! :) Let me know how you like it!

Anon- Thanks for visiting my blog!I am glad that you liked the taste of the pudding!

About it not setting: Did you thicken the sauce really well? Let me know!

Ann said...

Hi Ria,

I tried this recipe for my husbands bday party and it came out well :) I added dark chocolate to the sauce and drizzled white chocolate on the top(left over from the chocolate ganache I had prepared for the cake). Thanks a ton!! I should say amazing work :)

Thanks,
Ann

Hima said...

Ria - I am new reader to ur blog and live in Chennai. What is 'cream' in this recipe? Are you talking about Amul cream? A bit confused?

Ria Mathew said...

Hima- Welcome to my blog :) Yes, you are correct! The cream that I have mentioned is 'Amul' cream or any other fresh cream. :) Hope you like it! :)

Zo-Ya said...

Hey Ria,
I tried this yesterday and we both loved it:) One question about the cream topping, I used Amul fresh cream but the texture of it is a bit foamy even after setting it,rather not the custardy texture which I think is how it must be?
Cheers

Ria Mathew said...

Zo-Ya- Thanks so much! The texture of whipped cream is fluffy,melt-in-the-mouth and light. It's okay,Amul cream does not have a high fat content to whip up like the cream that we get here...that's why.

Hilda said...

This is such an easy, much-loved dessert! Thanks again Ria as this is my backup option most of the time. :)

Shillu Jos said...

Hey Ria,

I never make desserts. But this one looks simple and tempting and I want to try. I had 2 basic questions.
1. The butter that needs to be used is salted or unsalted?
2. While making the chocolate sauce, should we follow double-boiling or the normal boiling?

Ria Mathew said...

Shillu - I prefer salted butter for this recipe but it's totally upto you! :) Chocolate sauce can be made using direct heat.It thickens faster that way.Just stir it well as it will clump up and burn if you don't.
Hope you enjoy the pudding!
