My comfort cushion. Period. It may or may not look like food-art but definitely tastes like one. Thing is when you are sleepy you just need a nice comfy bed. It doesn’t matter how beautifully decorated it is. But the best part is you can decorate this pudding to your liking when you serve to guests. My version can be made both in a microwave [3-4 mins] or on gas stoves. If you have guests coming over I advise you to add a lot of chopped strawberries, stacked on top of it and then a dollop of cream to do the trick. I however took this photo on a bored afternoon, during an intense craving for chocolatey delight.
- 1/2 litre milk
- 4 slices bread
- Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 tea spoon Cornflour diluted in warm milk
- Vanilla Essence
Warm milk in the microwave/gas. I prefer the former these days as it is hassle-free. Next in a tall jar for your mixer-grinder, pour this warm milk, bread, sugar,cocoa powder and cornflour and simply give it a good mixing. The paste formed will be slightly thick in consistency. Now you can put this back in a pan on the gas and try to thicken it. What I do is simply put it in microwave for 4 mins and let it lose the extra liquid. Take it out add the vanilla essence and slightly mix with a spoon. Next let it cool down and then straight into the fridge where it needs to chill overnight for the best taste and texture.
Add on: If you want a mud pudding, do add some butter and extra chocolate sauce into this mixture.
You can lightly add some chocolate chips after 3 mins in the microwave and then put it back in for 1 more minute.
For the best Christmas-y feel I add a good splash of rum into this pudding before chilling.
Never fails to satisfy me 🙂
