For the final day of Kids Delight Creamy Food, I have a dark chocolate pudding. Did you think it was possible to wind up this theme without a treat for my kids? Well even if I think of doing it, it becomes impossible. When I started with this theme, I was actually not prepared with what I was going to make. Even though I had a rough idea of possible dishes, nothing got done ahead.
Then for Konda's birthday, I bought an Eggless chocolate Truffle from Cakes and Bakes, which is my frequent cake shop. I got eggless because I wanted to eat some cake, however, when I had a piece, I realized how dry the cake was. The frosting was delicious, the cake was horrible. Baking eggless cakes myself and having known such soft cakes, I was so disappointed at the shop's cake. I didn't' even bother complaining. This was my last visit.
I know I could have baked a cake myself and it would have been 100 times better than that pricey cake. I repented later. Anyway, as I said the chocolate frosting was good and Konda was asking for the frosting. That made me remember chocolate pudding. I will be making her chocolate Ganache just for eating, meanwhile, with all the kids at home, I know they will enjoy some chocolate indulgence.
I made this pudding in the morning, hoping to have this served for their lunch. Hubby dear called up to say it was delicious and teasingly asked if I used cooking chocolate to make the chocolate pudding. He always gets so amused when he sees the cooking chocolate bars. I said he need not get worried, I actually cooked it using cocoa powder!
I already have a Chocolate Pudding made with Chocolate, a couple of Mousse, one with Dark Chocolate, one with Nutella. A pudding can refer to custards, mousse. where basically collagen agents are used to thicken the dish. Mousse on the other hand typically refers to the light and fluffy nature that is achieved by folding in whipped cream. As expected I interchange the techniques at times, depending on the time at hand.
