Biscuit Fingers Pudding




This biscuit fingers pudding is easy to prepare. However it will take about 6 hours to prepare this.
I found this recipe from a book & this is another yummy recipe from it.The name of the book is ‘Pudding Cake’ published by 'One Publisher' (A Publisher from Malaysia)


Because the recipe is with using cocoa powder, it is full of chocolate taste together with the taste of biscuit. 



Ingredients (enough to fill 2-3 small glasses)

Ingredient A

Unflavoured gelatin 4 tbspn (check your package details too for amount need )
Hot water 2 cups
1 tbspn dark cocoa powder
120g sugar

Ingredient B

Biscuit fingers 10- 15 numbers

2-3 small glasses as moulds

Method

Mix ingredient A together adding hot water slowly. Whisk using a fork to avoid lumps. Bring it to boil.


Pour this mixture into glasses, but make glasses to fill half.


Allow to cool & keep in fridge to set completely.
This will take about 2-3 hours to set completely. Remember to shake the remaining mixture time to time for not to allow setting.
After it is set almost, take out & insert biscuit fingers. Insert more fingers if you like, I used 5 fingers per glass.


Now fill the glasses with remaining mixture.


Keep the glasses inside the fridge & allow setting. This will take another 2-3 hours.
Once it is set, remove to a plate. Using a flat spatula, remove the pudding from the sides of the glasses. Then it is easy to remove.
Cut into slices.



 Serve & Enjoy!!

Strawberry Yogurt Pudding Cake




I found this recipe from a recipe book which I bought few weeks ago. The name of the book is ‘Pudding Cake’ published by 'One Publisher' (A Publisher from Malaysia)


I am really attracted to the recipes of it. I can’t wait until I try all the desserts from that book. Friends, I am sorry, I will post many pudding recipes I tried. Hope you will not get bored.
I did the changes for the quantities from the original recipe as I want to make it in a small quantity.Also arranging of strawberries are different from the original recipe.


Here is my recipe.

Ingredients (serves about 8 assuming 1 slice each)

Basic Ingredients

1 mini swiss roll-cut into 1cm slice (I used store bought swiss roll)
Few strawberries (about 5 nos)

Ingredients A

1 1/2 tspn Unflavored Gelatin (or agar agar powder) (check your package details too for correct amount to set)
1 cup hot water

Ingredients B

3 tsp unflavored Gelatin (or agar agar)
75g sugar
2 cups hot water
1 strawberry yogurt (standard size)
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream (recipe says 150ml fresh cream, but I used a scoop of ice cream)

Method:

Use a rectangular cake tin or a mould or a plastic container as I did.
Slice the swiss roll into 1cm slices & arrange it as bottom layer.



Now we use ingredients A
Slowly mix gelatin with water & bring it to boil.(ingredients A)
Pour it into the mould which swiss rolls are arranged.
Better use a spoon & slowly pour the mix to the mould. If not swiss rolls can get damaged.


Keep in the fridge & allow to set.(about 15 minutes)


Now we go to ingredients B
Mix sugar & gelatin together. Then it is easy to dissolve in water.
Mix gelatin, sugar & strawberry yogurt with water (from ingredients B) & bring it to boil.
You can see some pieces in below pictures,they are some strawberry pieces which were in the yogurt.
Allow to cool slightly. (say mix B)


Take half of mix B,and add the ice cream scoop (or fresh cream) & mix well.
Pour this mix slowly on top of swiss roll layer (already set)
Keep in the fridge to set. (15-30 minutes)



Meanwhile wash, clean & slice strawberries.
After the 2nd layer is set,
Arrange the strawberry slices on top of it.


Then slowly pour the remaining part of Mix B on top of strawberries.
Cover the strawberries completely.
Place in the fridge to set.


It is already set now & here is a side view with 3 layers.



After it is set, 
I removed it from the mould (To remove easily -keep the pudding with the mould in hot water for few seconds, then slowly remove it on a plate.)

Decorate it with some strawberries or as you wish.



Slice it & serve.
Hint: First I sliced as long strips, but I had a difficulty to serve as it seems like breaking.
But it was successful when I sliced as 2 inch pieces.

I was lucky to share this dessert with few of my friends & their comments were so good. So I am sure you would love it too.
Enjoy!!
