Bread pudding with brioche and caramel sauce

Difficulty 2/5

Ohhhhh bread pudding. I think that as years have gone by it’s become infamous as dessert made out of stale bread. However, now we know it doesn’t have to be that way; my brioche was nice and fresh. It also doesn’t have to be something stiff full of egg and dry. I present to you then my bread pudding recipe which is a bit different. To start I do a caramel base (like on a creme caramel) to give it layers of different flavours, and the sausa… THAT SAUCE MY GOD… it’s too good. I was changing it a bit this time, and when I tried it I wanted to go for a swim in it. So here goes my bread pudding with caramel sauce 🙂 Continue reading Bread pudding with brioche and caramel sauce

Chia chocolate pudding

Difficulty 1/5

Chia is a funny little seed. When in contact with humidity, they hydrate and increase in volume, leaving a feeling similar to tapioca when you bite into them. Chia is also an amazing source of nutrients, and at the same time contains a really low calorie count.  They are also loaded with antioxidants, fibre and protein. This mix makes it helpful in the search of losing weight :O! And if this wasn’t enough for you to eat a whole kilo of these magical seeds, they help improve certain blood markers which help decreasing the chances of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. In this case we make a pudding out of them (since they soak up the chocolate milk) and top them with fruit and honey 🙂 Continue reading Chia chocolate pudding

Rice Pudding

Difficulty 1/5

Last week I had over some friends and cooked ají de gallina and for dessert rice pudding. So there are many versions of rice pudding around the world, this is the one I’m used to and what we eat in Peru. I really love it, it’s sweet and has really good texture! Also love the cinnamon and clove aroma it has while cooking, it takes me back several years! Hope you enjoy it!
