Well this is technically my first week baking with Tuesday's with Dorie, but I did bake along with them last week for the Deep Dish Blueberry Pie. Unfortunately we ate the pies so quickly I didn't get any photos! Needless to say, they were absolutely delicious!
This weeks recipe was chosen by Melissa from Its Melissas Kitchen; Chocolate Pudding. I love creamy desserts, and I love chocolate so how could I not love this? The recipe was really simple, so it would be great for when friends come for dinner; especially since it needs to be made in advance.
I was really pressed for time sourcing ingredients for this recipe, so I was only able to get my hands on Lindt 70% chocolate. The Lindt was ok, but next time I will definitely be using my favourite, Valrhona. I'll probably even add some Valrhona crunchy chocolate pearls for texture. Here I made a poor attempt at a quenelle of sweetened cream and finished it with a grating of chocolate.
Oh, and S said it reminded him of a better version of those SnackPacks he ate growing up.
