TH and my son are more than happy to have something sweet after every meal. And my son asks me what we have for dessert, almost everyday after dinner. A couple of days back, I said I really don't know what to make everyday and he was like "But you watch Masterchef and you see so many recipes on Google" ! For him Google has the solution to every problem in my life ! Now I really had no more excuses, so I rustled up this for dessert on Sunday.
A simple and delicious dessert idea. This has no eggs and is more like a cake.
This recipe is not from 'Google' though, its from Ma's friend. If Ma likes something that she's eaten some place, she either asks for the recipe or tries making it from what she thinks has gone into it and then promptly mails me the recipe. I have a folder full of recipes from her. She also tries recipes from my blog, though she will not read the recipe here and will call up to ask. I definitely get my love for cooking from her.
Chocolate Walnut Pudding

1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp unsalted butter
For the topping
3 tbsp sugar (add more if you like it sweet)
1/4 cup cocoa
1.5 cups boiling hot water
What you do with it -
Pre-heat the oven to 180 C
Sieve together the maida, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder 3 times
In a bowl, add melted butter. Mix in the sugar, milk, vanilla and chopped walnuts

Pour the batter into a greased baking dish
Over this spread sugar and cocoa from the 'topping'
Add the boiling water carefully so as not to disturb the base. Do Not Mix
Bake for 30 mins. The base will have a chocolatey sauce like texture that tastes absolutely delicious
I sprinkled some icing sugar and drizzled some caramel sauce over it
