MBP: Something sweet

The best thing about MBP is that you get a chance to visit all the lovely blogs in detail, find a recipe that sounds new and interesting, and try it at home. MBP makes you scour through your friend’s blogs, reading their long written posts and memories. This time Coffee chose “Something Sweet” as the month’s theme. The monthly patrolling took me to Shilpa’s blog – where there was no dearth of sweets. I totally love her blog for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the name of the blog “Aayi’s Recipes (Mom’s recipes)” sounds very, very sweet to me. It reminds me of my own mom’s recipes whenever I visit her blog. Then there’s the beautiful header, the plethora of recipes, her clear style of writing, and beautiful pictures. There were plenty of sweets to choose from – so much so that I got confused. Time was running out and I settled on something that seemed interesting and new to me. The first sweet in Shilpa’s desserts list happens to be “Biscuit Pudding” and I decided to try it out.

I did not have “Marie” biscuits on hand and was going to substitute with Parle – G biscuits. Then I thought better of it; didn’t want the pudding to be a disaster. I followed the recipe as is, just took half the quantity of everything. Here’s how the pudding turned out:

Shilpa, after eating this we licked the chocolate from the vessel. Nope, it’s not bad manners:) Thanks Coffee for the beautiful theme and to Shilpa for this wonderful recipe.
