Rice Pudding with Agave Syrup

Rice Pudding with Agave Syrup

Rice pudding is not a particularly sweet dessert to begin with, as it focuses primarily on the rice and milk that make up its bulk. But sweetness is what makes it dessert instead of a pleasant side dish, so sugar is really a key ingredient. I typically use regular sugar for my rice pudding. I have dressed it up before with a little drizzle of ... Read More »

White Chocolate Bread Pudding

White Chocolate Bread Pudding, unsauced

Bread pudding comes in all different forms, from recipes that can be individually sliced and served very neatly to recipes so pudding-like that the must be scooped and served in a bowl. Recently, Anna from Cookie Madness came across one that is a little more unusual and talked me into trying it out. White Chocolate Challah Bread Pudding she made comes from a cookbook called ...

Classic Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is a rich chocolate dessert that is made with lots of chocolate and lightened with either egg whites, whipped cream or a combination of the two. A classic chocolate mousse, in my book, is a chocolate mousse that doesn’t use any whipped cream. It gets its lightness and structure from beaten egg whites. Sometimes it seems that these days, mousses are more likely ... Read More »

Chocolate Mint Pudding

Chocolate Mint Pudding

I was watching a TV series on DVD recently, and in one episode, the characters ate a heck of a lot of chocolate pudding. They are so much that it kind of put me off of it. Now, don’t get me wrong because I do like chocolate pudding – I was just glad that had already eaten the chocolate chocolate pudding that I had made ... Read More »

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

A clafoutis is somewhere between a cake and a custard. It’s a french dish, a baked dessert (although you can make savory clafoutis as well) that has lots of milk and eggs in it and is held together with a little flour for added stability. In general, clafoutis have a great eggy flavor to them and go well with a variety of different fruits. Pears ... Read More »

Strawberry Bread Pudding

Strawberry Bread Pudding

I really like that flavor and the texture of my cream cheese bread pudding, as it’s slightly firmer than many bread puddings and has a hint of cheesecakiness to it. It’s almost like having two desserts in one. I decided to take advantage of the cheesecake angle of the dessert and play with the flavors in the dish a little bit. Strawberries, for instance, are ...

Thai Coffee Creme Caramel

Thai Coffee Creme Caramel

I am a big fan of Thai coffee and Thai iced tea. The iced tea, which is regular iced tea sweetened with [usually a lot] of sweetened condensed milk, is probably a bit more common than the coffee version, but the coffee is made the same way, with sweetened condensed milk. The milk is thick and very sweet, with rich caramel flavor to it, and ... Read More »

Chocolate and Vanilla Pudding Cups

I used to love eating those layered Jello pudding cups, the ones that had chocolate on the bottom, vanilla in the middle and chocolate on top. The vanilla layer was my favorite part, as a whole container of chocolate pudding could be a little on the rich side (at the time, anyway). These days, the Jello pudding cups don’t quite do it for me, but ... Read More »
