Its the middle of Summer and I’m enjoying Mr.Sun on one side, and dreading the constant bickering of my kids on the other. To keep me cool and to let them have some fun with occasional sweet treats in the evening I made this truffle pudding from left over sponge cake from the battenberg cake that I tried for this month’s Daring Baker’s challenge. My kids have some strange attraction towards size when they need to choose their treats. It has to be huge and slightly bigger than everyone else’s cup. After winning the biggest cup, my daughter struggled so hard to finish the pudding which was bound to happen but somehow stuffed herself like a stuffed duckling. It was hilarious to watch her move around for few minutes. Finally she declared that she’s gonna choose smaller treats next time but that hasn’t happened yet. Its still bigger cups that are more appealing to my kids. Big or small, these puddings are sure to win anyone with a sweet tooth.






Sponge cake — 1 cup (Alternatively any other cake either store bought or homemade or graham crackers can also be used )

Corn Starch — 3 Tbsp

Cocoa Powder — 3 Tbsp

Milk — 1 1/2 cups (3/4 whole milk + 3/4 skim milk)

Cane Sugar — 2 to 3 Tbsp

Salt — 1/8 tsp

Butter — 1 Tbsp

Pure Vanilla Extract — 1/2 tsp

Whipped cream — 1/2 cup

Fresh fruits (strawberries or blueberries) — 1/2 cup

Method for Chocolate Pudding (recipe from here)

1. Boil 1 cup milk in a saucepan. In another bowl, whisk corn starch, cocoa, sugar, salt and 1/2 cup milk at room temperature well without any lumps.

2. Once the milk boils, simmer and mix in the cocoa milk in to the boiling milk. Stir continuously until thick and creamy about 10-12 mins. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and butter until smooth and glossy.

Assembling the pudding:

In an icecream bowl or glass bowl, layer cake, pudding, whipped cream and fresh fruits one above the other. Chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Serve chilled with optional chocolate shavings on top.

    • Thanks Kalyani. I guess cornstarch and corn flour are used interchangeably. I used cornstarch as thickening agent. If you use your cornflour(white fine powder) then go ahead and use them in the recipe. Yes Demerara sugar is a type of cane sugar. If you don’t get raw cane sugar then use the regular variety, it should be fine. Please do let me know how it turned out.

  21. Looks delicious. I wish I can have some right now.

  22. Lovely recipe..I love sweets…And this needs just the basic ingredients..M going to try this soon…
