The weekend is over, and i spent the nights in my kitchen, while my family is asleep. Tried many recipes, succeeded in a few and spoilt a few. But overall it was a great experience. This week i’ll be updating the recipes that I made over the weekend. Hope you guys enjoy it.

About Chocolate Ganache and Custard Pudding, I started cooking at 12:30 AM on saturday night after coming back from a friends birthday party, with a recipe which had a complicated process for a sauce as the topping, I attempted at making the sauce and refrigerated overnight and in the morning it was still the same consistency. That’s the worst thing that can happen to you, cause you sleep thinking wow I made an awesome looking dessert and when you get up and your entire family is sitting on the dining table waiting to see what I was cooking at midnight and it turns out a total flop. So I went into the kitchen, put on my chefs hat and changed that sauce to a simple custard sauce and the results you can see in these pictures. 🙂

I love this pudding because its easy to make and tastes really good !

Ingredients:

For chocolate ganache:

  • Milk Chocolate – 5 tbsps
  • Coffee Powder – 1 tsp
  • Cream – 1/4 cup
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
  • Salt – a pinch

For Custard Sauce:

  • Milk – 1/2 litre
  • Sugar – 4 – 5 tbsps
  • Custard powder – 2 1/2 tbsps
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp

Method:

For chocolate ganache:

  • Heat cream in the microwave for about 2 mins or till boiling
  • Add the coffee powder and milk chocolate which is broken in small chunks in the cream
  • Let sit in for 2 mins and then stir vigorously, till mixed well
  • Add vanilla essence and a pinch of salt to it and stir again
  • Put in bowl/ramekins and let it set in the refrigerator for about one hour

For Custard Sauce:

  • In a pan add milk and sugar and bring to a boil
  • Put the custard powder in a cup, dilute it with some water and stir till smooth
  • Pour the custard powder mix and vanilla essence in the milk, gas on simmer and let cook for about 3 minutes/or until thick
  • Remember that the custards consistency should be medium thick because it has to set on top of the chocolate ganache. if you think its too thin mix in 1 tbsp of custard powder diluted in water to the milk and cook for another minute

For Garnishing:

  • You can garnish with nuts of your choice
  • Chocolate flakes/ Chocolate chips

Let it set in refrigerate overnight, and serve chilled 🙂

      Also the vanilla pudding is easy and good. Try that too. If mayank and Vikram Bhaiya liked the ganache they will surely love the vanilla pudding too.
