Pudding - Cake & Custard
Now what has brought about this ? Custard! I made some to top Apple Crisp and it has taken me back in time.
The simplest of desserts and a favourite. We were served this at dinner time in our hostel. Remembering those good old days. This one is for my batch-mates and (our warden) Mother Mary - Jyoti Nivas, Banagalore who made me feel welcome and at home in the hostel.
Cake - 1 slice; any leftover cake would do (here I have used Chocolate Cake)
Custard - 1/2 cup; preferably Vanilla flavour
Fruits / Nuts - 2 or 3 pieces; optional (this is my addition)
Cut the cake into cubes.
Put them in a cup along with chopped fruits.
Top with luke-warm custard.
Dunk the cake pieces gently into the custard (helps absorb the custard).
This can be served warm or at room temperature or chilled.
To make Custard:
I use Brown & Polson Custard Powder, just followed the instructions on the pack.
Cool thoroughly, stirring to ensure that a skin does not form on top.
Make sure the milk is thick and creamy. Else add in a little Fresh Cream (about 2 to 3 Tbsp for a cup of milk).
