As Nigella says,some recipes sing to you and sang it did..when I saw Mallika of Veg Bowl’s recipe for Coffee Biscuit pudding,I knew I am gonna love it.I always stick to ma-in-law’s classic recipe for Biscuit pudding,but this was different.It used Krack-jack biscuits and coffee and custard and it sounded like such a great combination that I HAD to try it.
I absolutely love the burst of flavors in this.The slight tinge of salty taste mixed with coffee flavored biscuit layers with the custard sauce..just one word-awesome!!
Coffee Biscuit Custard Pudding
For the Custard
Milk – 1 packet, ½ litre
Vanilla flavoured Custard powder – 3 tbsp
Sugar – 3 tbsp
Mix custard powder with ¼ cup cold milk and boil the rest of the milk with sugar.
Add the custard paste when the milk boils,stir for a while till it starts thickening and leave to cool until just warm.
For layering the pudding
Krack Jack biscuit – 1 pack
Strong Coffee decoction – ½ cup
[the original recipe requires this to be set in a square cake tin but I used a round pudding bowl]
Layer the base of the pudding bowl with coffee soaked biscuits.
Spread a layer of custard over this.
On top of that again layer coffee soaked biscuits and then custard.
Continue with biscuit-custard for 3-4 layers.[not more than that since the custard won’t hold shape while serving]
Top with grated chocolate or cocoa and set in the refrigerator to chill for 3-4 hours.
Garnish with dry fruits or nuts.
