TWD - Split Level Pudding

Pudding is a comforting dessert and with the cooling temperatures and rainy days we've been having lately, this was really a perfect choice for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie. Garett of Flavor of Vanilla chose this for us and what a great pick it was!

Quite a simple recipe (if you forgo the whole food processor thing and just use a good ol' whisk) it can be made in advance as it has to chill for a bit, unless you like warm pudding, whatever floats your boat. I wanted to see the layers of the pudding so I used clear glasses, warmed up some leftover ganache I had from the Chocolate-Crunched Caramel Tart and let it chill before spooning the pudding on top. Then, after the pudding had a little R&R in the fridge, I whipped up a little cream, shaved a little chocolate and voilà! Perfect rainy day dessert.

My fave pudding is still the Real Butterscotch Pudding but this one is very good, especially with the chocolaty surprise at the bottom of the glass. Since the ganache sets, it gets almost truffle-like and it's a great contrast to the silky pudding. Thanks Garett for a fun pick! Visit the other Tuesdays with Dorie members for infinite variations on today's pudding!

The textural contrast is what made this pudding. Adding yet a lighter element with the whipped cream had to be even better! So pretty.

Susan said...

Look at that presentation! Absolutely gorgeous job! REstaurant worthy!

Ganache. Pudding. Whipped cream. Chocolate shavings. I'm in love.

Those are perfectly beautiful.

Oh yes, simpler is better (and usually works)! Whenever I see "use your food processor..." it makes my insides cry as I don't have one. And in this case, it was barely necessary! Man, I wish one glass could've been mine ;)

Your photos of this weeks recipe are the best I've seen. Beautiful! I agree with you on the point of it being truly a season appropriate selection. So comforting this time of year. We have had rainy weather recently in Missouri and so it's perfect.
Perfecto!
