Whenever I get a chance to make a sweet treat, I never let it go. This chance came upon suddenly when my parents invited my Aunt and family over for lunch. They live in the US and had come visiting us after 3 long years.
I had eaten a pudding which my Aunt had made during my visit to my 'Motherland' in July for my nephew's birthday. I really liked it and so I had written it down in my diary. So thought of giving that recipe a try.
Usually my mom doesn't eat cakes/desserts especially if it has chocolate/ pineapple. BUT this one made it's way to my mom's heart through her stomach :D She kept eating bits of whatever was left after the lunch and I must say that gives me the hint that it was a huge success with her. It's very difficult for a dessert/cake to get into her good books ;) This one definitely did! :)
It is a very simple and easy recipe which can me made in less than 20 mins FLAT! And it sets so beautifully well.
♥Silky Chocolate Custard Biscuit Pudding♥
Recipe source :Mini Aunty
Condensed milk:3/4 th of a 400g tin
Milk:1 tin [condensed milk tin measure]
Dark Chocolate:150g, cut into small bits
Strong black coffee- 1 cup or as needed.
- Dip the biscuits in coffee and line a pudding dish.
- Melt chocolate.
- Mix rest of the ingredients together ( including chocolate) except cream and make a thick custard by either double boiling it or if you are confident enough, directly over the flame. [I chose the latter , not that I was confident but I hate double boiling!! It seem to take ages! :P]
- Pour the thick custard over the biscuit layer. Let it set.
- Beat the cream real thick and you can spread it or pipe out rosettes.
- Serve chilled.
It was a HUGE hit! The custard was absolutely delicious and silky. It was rich and lush! We all had 2-3 helpings and by the end of our lunch, there was only a tiny bit left. And my Uncle, a big foodie told me 'Once you are married and come to the US, I will send you 4 tickets every year to come to my place [Boston] and cook for me' :D I am thinking of taking it as a career now!LOL! ;) Imagine your housemaid 'flying' down! LOL! :P
If you think you need a rich,easy and highly appealing dessert... try this! I guarantee you that this will be a HIT!
Have a good weekend!!
Update: I have lost count of how many times I must have made this pudding because of it's goodness. My cousin shared this recipe with her friend in Dubai, who was participating in a Dessert Competition. And guess what? She won first! So, do I need any better testimonial! Here's the pic of what she made:
Isn't that pretty? ?
