Chocolate Biscuit Pudding

I started uni on Monday!!! *gasp* 😉

Yup- after waking up terribly early at 6:30 (considering i usually wake up at around 10) and wondering whether the time on my clock was was actually the right time, then taking an hour and a half bus ride, which abruptly ended long before my stop, leading to much panic as I tried to find another bus, then arrived at the uni only to get confused as to where the lecture theatre actually was, I finally settled down into my first lecture (and met a really nice person too) 🙂

So a week on, what do I think of it?

Well- I’m not exactly thinking at the moment. I never realised how tiring 4 hours travelling everyday would so tiring, or how boring maths lectures could be. And I hate 8am maths lectures with a passion. Still- it’s interesting, with all the meeting new people, bumping into high school friends, trying to find places and joining clubs (I’m still sad we don’t have a food lovers club though *sigh* I guess the chocolate society will have to do). I sort of miss high school but in a way, I’m sort of happy to be in the next ‘stage’ of my life.

The other day we passed the suburb where we used to live when I was small which brought back many memories. It seems not too long ago that I was in preschool, madly screaming and banging on doors as my mother left me or when I started kindergarten, barely knowing english (I still don’t remember how I quite communicated with others).

I actually feel a lot older now that I’m around all these ‘big’ people. A lot older than I’d like to feel, when inside, I know I’m still quite childish- I like to wear T shirts with huge cartoons on them, I like playing with cute stuffed toys, I like bright colourful things…..and I don’t like coffee 😉

Which is all very well as this tiramisu looking dessert (as noted by grub) is actually chocolate biscuit pudding. No coffee whatsoever 🙂 It’s incredibly good, with deliciously rich chocolately mousse sandwiched between layers of milk soaked marie biscuits and scattered with cashews to give it some crunch. The crazily high amount of butter, chocolate, and whipped cream makes it terribly unhealthy but it’s so good it’s worth it!

I made this with my friends during the summer holidays and we had a very fun afternoon playing around with this recipe. We didn’t quite have enough time to chill it until set (and wanted to eat it before we went home), which is why these photos are of a slice of melted and then rechilled pudding- but it’s still so good!

Sago Pudding

Let’s play the mystery picture game!
(you can only play if you haven’t read the title of this post)


Did you guess what this is?

It’s a sago pudding!!
Okay, so it doesn’t really look like a sago pudding. But still. It tasted like one =] This one, I made with my mum. Because although cooking/baking in itself is heaps of fun, it’s heaps more fun when you’re doing it with someone else. Eventhough we both like to hog the acitivites. =]


Can you see the sago?

We’ve always wanted to make a sago pudding because it’s something that everyone in our family, especially my dad, who can be awfully picky about desserts. I did try to search for a sago pudding recipe a while ago, but that proved quite difficult as there are a few different types of sago pudding (we were looking for the type you get at yum cha) In the end, I used a recipe from Helen from Grabyourfork which looked like the exact sago pudding we were after. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

It turns out that the recipe made a huge serving, as we halved it and still made enough to last the four of us for a couple of days. The sago we used was quite small (I like bigger sago balls), and the pudding was a little runnier than expected but other than that, it was delicious! The custard was creamy and sweet and since it was very very hot, it tasted better than a lot of sago puddings we’ve had at yum cha restaurants!


We made this at night, so the photography isn’t all that great (espcially since my photography skills are very limited).

Here’s the recipe:

Sago Pudding

from Grabyourfork

2 cups sago
2 cups sugar
125g butter
1 cup milk
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup cornflour (cornstarch)
1/2 cup custard powder
4 eggs

Soak sago well in water for a few hours. Pour sago into a pan of boiling water and simmer until transparent. Wash under running tap. Drain and set aside.
Put 1 litre water and sugar in a saucepan. Slowly bring to boil and add butter, milk and sago, stirring until well blended.
Mix coconut milk with cornflour and custard powder. Gradually stir into boiling sugar mixture. Continue stirring until thickened. Remove from heat.
Add well-beaten eggs and stir until smooth. Pour into heatproof container and place on middle shelf of preheated oven 230C.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Note: Coconut milk can be replaced by 1/2 water and 1/2 milk.
Serves 10-15

btw, this is what happened when you try to burn the top with a blowtorch. Although it was very fun, I can’t say that it was successful. =[
