Lemony Hot Cross Bun Pudding April 3, 2016

Lemony Hot Cross

Use up your leftover hot cross buns in this tasty spin on traditional bread and butter pudding – a great spring bake.

 

Ingredients

 

4-6 hot cross buns

200g lemon curd

2 eggs

200ml double cream

200ml milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 Tbsp caster sugar

 

Method

 

Butter a 1-litre baking dish that will quite snugly fit the buns. Cut each bun in halve, and sandwich back together with a generous spreading of lemon curd. Arrange buns in the dish.

Whisk egg, cream, milk and remaining curd together, then sieve into a jug with the vanilla extract and 3 tbsp of the sugar. Pour over the buns and stand at room temperature for 30 mins for the custard to soak in.

Heat oven to 160C/ gas 3. Scatter the remaining sugar over the pudding. Bake for 30-40 mins until the top is golden and the custard gently set. Stand for 5 minutes before serving.

 

Butterscotch Pudding June 3, 2014

Caramel Dessert

This homemade butterscotch pudding recipe use’s the sort of ingredients we all have in our cupboards and is so easy to make, you will wonder why you ever bought a packaged pudding.

 

Ingredients

2 cups milk
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
4 Tablespoons all purpose flour
2 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Method

In a large saucepan, with heat at medium, stir together milk, sugar, flour, eggs and salt.

Stir constantly with a balloon whisk while the mixture comes to a boil and begins to thicken.

Remove pan from heat.

Whisk in vanilla.

Pour pudding into four individual serving cups, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and ready to serve.

This amount makes 4 – 6 servings, depending on how big you want them. I made some smaller ones as some are for Grandchildren.

 

 

 

 

 

Six Minute Chocolate Pudding November 3, 2013

Choc Pud

125g sugar

125g plain flour

75g cocoa powder

2 tsp baking powder

3 eggs

Whisk together butter, sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder and eggs. It will be rather stodgy but believe me, it works.

When mixture is all combined, turn it into a greased 900ml/1½ pint, pudding basin, smooth down, cover with clear film and microwave on high for 6 mins.

Done!

This is good served with custard, cream or chocolate sauce. Chocolate sauce recipe is below.

100g plain chocolate, chopped

15 ml golden syrup

Melt together butter, chocolate and golden syrup over a pan of hot water. Once melted, stir in cream (this will thicken sauce).
