TRIPLE DELIGHT(EGGLESS)


A lovely pudding,a satisfying treat after a meal!

Eggless,with simple ingredients.Thickened with

Cornstarch in three flavours and a sprinkle of

praline is divine !

Each layer will set quickly, and you have to

pour each layer after it sets . ( within minutes).

The time you make a layer is enough for the

prepared layer to set.


INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER

2 cups milk (200 ml )

2 heaped spoons for cornstarch mixed in a little milk

3 tbsp sugar

3 tbsp cocoa powder or 100-200 dark chocolate

pieces

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

a pinch of salt

METHOD

•Heat the milk with the sugar

•Pour a little hot water on the cocoa powder

and mix to a smooth paste.

• If you are using chocolate also you can add a

little hot water / hot milk to melt

•When it reaches boiling point ,add cornflour

and the rest of the ingredients,and cook to a

thick custard consistency .

•Remove from fire and pour into individual

ramekins and allow to set ,while you prepare

the next layer.


VANILLA LAYER

INGREDIENTS

2 cups milk (200 ml )

2 heaped spoons for cornstarch mixed in a little milk

3 -4 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

METHOD

Follow the same method,and pour the next

layer.


CARAMEL LAYER

INGREDIENTS

2 cups milk

2 heaped tbsp cornstarch mixed in a little milk

or water

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp water

A pinch of salt

METHOD

•Boil the sugar with 2 tbsp water till it melts.

• Add cornstarch and cook to thick custard

stage

•Remove from fire and add to the final layer .

Allow to set for minimum two hours and serve

with praline / chocolate shavings .

Praline is my best choice .

If you have salted caramel toppings you can add a tbsp for enhanced taste .

FOR THE CASHEW PRALINE

1 tbsp butter

3-4 tbsp sugar ( not brown)

A handful of cashewnuts

Heat the butter and sugar together.

When it starts to bubble add the cashews and

mix in quick for a minute .

Transfer to a board and allow to cool . Crush to

your choice and sprinkle on dessert when you

serve!

BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING


This is an awesome dessert which could be made eggless too.I have shared the eggless

version before.. BASIC BLACMANGE WITH VARIATIONS (EGGLESS) .Now i would like to

share the egg version.Another note ,i would like to make is, try your best to use the brown

sugar, if not available use the white sugar but, make sure you caramelise to get a nice

brown  butterscotchy look.When praline is topped while serving it is surely a delight!

Okay!Now for the recipe

3/4 -1 cup brown sugar

3 eggs (yolks and whites separated)

3.5 tsps geletine mixed in half cup hot water

3 cups milk

1-2 tblsp brandy (optional)

Heat butter and sugar in a saucepan on medium flame.Do not stir (let the butter melt and

the mixture change color).Then mix gently to get the syrupy look.Remove from fire.

Beat the egg yolks slightly and add to the milk.Mix well.Add to the caramelised

mixture.Next add the gelletine mix,and keep cooking on a very slow fire,till you get a light

custard texture.(not thick).(patience needed).Add brandy.

In the meantime,beat egg whites to a stiff froth.Fold in to the custard mixture (a little

warm is fine)when cool and refridgerate till its set.

Serve with praline.

Tip.You could make a trifle pudding with a piece of cake at the bottom,and this pudding on

top with chocolate drizzle and praline will be another delight

Topping or decorating the sides with praline

gives a richer taste.
