A Sweet Punch theme for November 2011 is the PUDDINGS - Hot/Cold.
Divya of Easy Cooking is hosting the event this month and she has chosen Coffee and Chocolate Pudding.
The recipe says to serve this delicious self saucing pudding with a generous scoop of Vanilla Ice cream.
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cocoa
Pinch of salt
½ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
½ cup milk
1 egg, beaten
50g cashew nuts, chopped
1 Preheat oven to 180°C.
2 Sift together dry ingredients.
3 Stir through butter, milk, egg and cashew nuts until well combined.
4 Spoon batter into bowls / ramekins.
5 For the topping - sprinkle over brown sugar and cocoa as topping then pour over coffee(about 1/2 cup black coffee).Do not stir.
6 Bake for 20 minutes.
7 Dust with cocoa powder or cinnamon and sugar; serve with vanilla ice cream.
A dollop of Vanilla ice cream with chocolate sprinkles , even drops of chocolate sauce or syrup should do wonders.....A scoop of ice cream did not look sufficient .......they asked for more !
