Three Layer Puddings in a Jar: Vanilla, Chocolate and Plum Cream




















First I made a vanilla pudding (following this basic recipe, but omitting the passion fruit), and I filled the bottoms of the jars (they are 125ml jars) with it. I put the jars in a bowl with some cold water to cool quickly. I added a few pieces of 72% dark chocolate to the pot with the remaining vanilla pudding, which was still hot, and stirred to make chocolate pudding. I poured some in to make a second layer in the jars. I had a lot of chocolate pudding left over for four ramekins, so I made a separate dessert too :-). 

In the end, when the puddings were cold I made the final pink layer: I whipped about 100 ml of cream with a tsp of Plum Powder (the flavour was lightly tangy and really nice, and the colour very pretty) and pour it on top. Refrigerate with the lid on, and serve with the lid on!! Very cute!







And now another sweet reminder: Emma just published the recap for

From my kitchen: happy weekend everyone!

  4. Your layered pudding is so pretty and creative. I would be thrilled to receive a jar. Love your hydrangeas too. They are one of my favorite flowers. They grow in my garden in the mountains and I dry them as the season ends.

    It's my pleasure to meet you Alessandra and I look forward to getting to know you better. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I'm off to read your post on your trip to Kawau.

  9. Splendida idea! Davvero e si può personalizzare! Mi rimane difficile trovare con facilità vasetti così piccoli, quando ero a Monaco potevo comperarli a vagoni...bellissime ortensie! Buon fine settimana

    1. Questi erano del miele, mi piacciono perché hanno il tappo a vite :-), ma è vero, non è facile trovarli così piccoli.

  10. originali nei barattoli!! con cosa posso sostituire la panna? non dirmi con crema di tofu (non mi piace)....magari una crema spumosa di anacardi?
    ....le ortensie mi ricordano sempre mia nonna, le amava e ne aveva di bellissime in giardino :)

    1. Pensavo che in Italia ci fosse anche una panna vegetale, ma non l'ho mai provata e non so se si può montare. La panna di tofu non la conosco, conosco quella di cocco (come il latte di cocco ma più densa) però ancora una volta non so se può montare. L'unica sarebbe scaldarla con un po' di agar agra così diventa più solida.

    2. vada per il cocco più agar, grazie :)

  15. I'd like to try that plum powder one day. Next time we visit Titirangi, I'll make sure to get it. Whereabouts is the shop?
    Lovely desserts.

  16. Ciao Arfi, in the post about Titirangi there is also a link to where to get the plum powder, and other fruit/veggies powders, I am sure that you can get it in a place nearer to you.
