Biscuit Pudding

I never knew you could make pudding out of biscuits, until I came across the recipe for a biscuit pudding on Divya's Easycooking blog.....*smiles*. The pudding was so easy to make and it was quite tasty too. I would tag this pudding as a 'kid-friendly recipe', because the kids would love it.


You would find most of the recipes I had tried out is from Divya's Easycooking blog. Thats because as her blog title suggests, her recipes are easy to follow and require less effort!! *smiles*




Ingredients:
Recipe Source: Divya's EasyCooking

Marie biscuits - 1 packet
Milk - 1 packet (500ml)
Sugar - 5 tbsps
Cornflour - 3 tbsps
Cocoa powder - 3 tbsps
Coffee decotion* - 4-5 tbsps diluted with 2-3 tbsps of water
Nuts - to garnish (I used cashewnuts, almond and pista)




Method:
  • Dip the marie biscuits in the coffee decotion (both sides) and layer them in a serving bowl.
  • In a pan, boil milk and add sugar.
  • In a bowl, mix cocoa powder and cornflour. Make a paste using very little milk, taking care not to form any lumps.
  • When the milk boils, add the cocoa - cornflour paste and mix well. It will thicken immediately, so keep stirring.
  • Remove from the flame when it thickens, but still of pouring consistency (similar to custard).
  • While still hot, pour it over the biscuits and cover the biscuits completely with the sauce.
  • Garnish with nuts of your choice (this is optional too).
  • Refrigerate for 4-5hrs and serve chilled.
* You could use instant coffee powder too. Mix 1-2 tsps of instant coffee powder with 3-4 tbsps of warm water.
