Recipes that are delicious and that always work!

You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.

Berry and White Chocolate Pudding



What would you say if I told you that you could have a deliciously scrummy baked dessert, on the table and ready to serve to your family in about 15 minutes time?



Tis no lie. It's true. Completely and utterly true.



A delicious baked pudding, chock full of lovely berries and yummy white chocolate.



Rich and indulgent and quick, quick, quick!



Seriously! I know!!!! It does look like the type of dessert that might have you slaving over a hot stove for ages . . . but . . . only you need to know that you didn't do just that.



Let your family think you suffered to bring them this. Let them sprinkle you with accolades and praise! Sit back and take all the honour while they devour this tasty pudding, mmm-ing and ahhh-ing the whole time.



They don't need to know how easy it was. That can be our . . . little . . . secret!



Adapted from a BBC Good Food recipe. Delicious, easy and quick! The proof of this pudding, truly is in the eating . . .

Printable Recipe

With a few ingredients, a microwave oven and 12 minutes in cook time, you can have a deliciously scrummy pudding on the table and wowing your guests!

4 ounces of butter, softened (1/2 cup)
100g of soft light brown sugar (1/2 cup packed)
100g self raising flour (2/3 cup)
2 large free range eggs
3 TBS milk
3 ounces white chocolate cut into small chunks (about 1 cup)
300g pack of frozen mixed berries (about 3 cups)

To serve:
Icing sugar
double cream

Butter a one litre round gratin dish. Place the butter, sugar, flour, eggs and milk into a bowl and beat together for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Fold in the chocolate bits and most of the frozen fruit, reserving some of the fruit for the end. Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish, leveling it out. Cook on high in the microwave for 10 to 12 minutes, or until completely set and dry on the top. Allow to stand for five minutes before serving.

To serve, dust the top with some icing sugar and garnish with the reserved berries. Spoon out into dessert bowls and pass the cream!
