Pudding cakes are my favourite dessert to make in winter. Easy to make with staple pantry ingredients, it translates to sheer comfort and deliciousness. Something that you would want to make over and over again for your dear ones. The cakes here is baked using the broiling method which keeps them super moist while they bake. I would suggest you serve them warm coz that makes all the difference. Serve with a drizzle of your favourite sauce, like I did with bitter salted caramel sauce. It complements the sweetness of the cake so well. My 8 yr old’s verdict was that its turned out yum!
This Christmas if you don’t want to go the usual fruit cake way, then this is the perfect treat for you and your guests. Just tip in the baking tray into the oven as you start your dinner and by the time you are done the cakes will be ready to be devoured. Of caramel is not your thing , go for a simple ganache or even a vanilla custard maybe. It should make you happy!
This Diwali add a Bengali touch to your dessert menu. Make the quintessential Payesh – a rice pudding considered to be so auspicious that no celebration in a Bengali household is complete without it. The ever so popular sweet dish, there has not been a single birthday when Maa had not made Payesh with loads of raisins for me. Now I do it for my little boy ( also for my husband ! ) A bowl of payesh makes them super happy.
Every Bengali family has their own recipe for making this dish. The one I am sharing today is by far the easiest and is made with condensed milk. And I believe any that has Milkmaid in it is super delicious. No seriously! Have u ever tried licking the sides of a milkmaid tin – its heaven and I do it even now!
