Garrett of Flavour of Vanilla chose Dorie's Split Level Puddings this week.
My very first TWD way back in July 08 was Chocolate Pudding which we absolutely loved, so I was curious to see how this chocolate and vanilla version would compare. Unfortunately, this fell into the liked not loved category.
The vanilla layer thickened nicely on the stove but when I blitzed it in the food processor it turned into vanilla soup and never really thickened up in the fridge. Think of the photo above as an action shot, taken before all the pudding slid off the spoon!
I also didn't really get any layers. The vanilla and chocolate parts blended together resulting in some random swirlyness.
The taste test ...
Not bad, just not something I would rush to make again even though I really do enjoy creamy desserts. Am curious though. Is it the addition of cornflour that makes this a pudding as opposed to a custard? Whatever you call it, hubby loved it and it was easy to make. That gets a thumbs up from me!
Thanks Garrett. You can find the recipe on The Flavour of Vanilla.
