PINEAPPLE -CHOCOLATE CUSTARD PUDDING


This is like the pineapple gateau cake, and the only difference is that the chocolate icing is replaced by the chocolate

custard.There wasn’t much of a differance in taste.When an icing cake is made at home,i always try to minimise the

icing on the cake even if it’s homemade.I never buy ready made fondant or icing and this thick custard on the cake

was a satiating dessert.

The sponge layer was a pineapple flavour, lightly soaked in pineapple juice and custard for the layers.

To the recipe now…

For the sponge (I used only half of this cake)

4 egg yolks

4 egg whites

1 heaped cup flour mixed with 1 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 cup sugar

1 tsp pineapple essence

Method

Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt till light peaks form.

Add the sugar and yolks gradually and beat well (electric mixer )for 5 minutes .

Now fold in the flour,essence gradually and mix well.(do not beat at this stage)

Transfer batter into a greased cake tray and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 25-30 minutes.

To prepare the pineapple

1 medium sized pineapple peeled, cored and cut into small pieces

2-3 tbsp sugar

a small piece cinammon

a pinch of salt

1/8 cup water

Method

Cook the ingredients except the water for 2-3 minutes.

Add water and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Remove from fire and allow to cool.

For the chocolate custard

25 gm butter

3/4 cup sugar

2-3 cups milk

2 heaped tbsp cornflour

2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

Method

Mix cornflour and cocoa powder in half cup milk (without lumps)and set aside.

Heat milk and sugar and once it reaches a boil ,add the cocoa mixture and keep stirring till it forms a thick custard.

Remove from fire.

Add butter and essence and mix well.

Allow to cool.

Assembling the pudding layers

Cut the sponge horizontally to fit the pudding bowl you are using.

Smear with pineapple juice and add half of the stewed pineapple.

Pour half of the custard over it.

Next place another layer of sponge on the custard and smear with pineapple juice and repeat process.

Top with stewed pineapple.

Keep in the refrigerator for some time and serve.
