This is just divine. It's a real cross between rice pudding and a creme brulee. I give you the recipe, just as my Mum gave it to me. I think that originally (in the 60's) it was an Arabella Boxer one. It's so good, it's been cooked in my family for over 30 years. Kate in Katoomba
At Fourth of July cookouts or Christmas family and church get-togethers, I am always asked to bring this. This is even what my daughter asks me to prepare as her birthday cake. Simple to prepare but elegant tasting. I have tried versions with regular chocolate frosting but this is so much better. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
This is another lovely dessert from my Chocolate cookbook by Christine McFadden & Christine France. These girls never fail me! This 1 is steam-cooked in a 4-cup bowl. My steamer is oblong-shaped & will not accept a 4-cup rd bowl, so I have made it in 4 individual dessert bowls & 8 ramekins. Adjusted cooking time for these sizes is noted below. The taste of banana & choc is pleasingly subtle here & combines w/an almost gingerbread flavor that reminds me of my mom. Serve it warm w/the choc sauce as suggested below. You are going to love this!
Sweet tooth and Pina Colada lovers this is for YOU!!!!!
Optional for the winter parties!
You can bake this in 2 medium metal bowls, (using foil to keep stable while baking) to form a snow ball when put together. You just need to slice a piece off the bottom (round part) so it can sit stable and frost with cream top with other half and frost with rest. Cover with coconut flakes.
This is a traditional South African dessert. These very addictive treats are not for people who are conscious of weight or sugar intake! These freeze fantastically well and are thus a great lifesaver for when unexpected company arrive. Time to make does not include overnight chilling time.
I have created this recipe, using a variety of other recipes for a base and then changing many things to meet my intense lemon craving! These go together very quickly and they are very tangy, on the too-tangy side of wonderful almost. If you lovelovelove tangy lemon and want a nice crisp crust with a higher ratio of lemon to crust, please try this recipe and tell me what you think!
