Chocolate Pudding

 

 

Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients:

4 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
4 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Ice cream (any flavor), (optional)

 

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place four 6- to 8-ounce ovenproof bowls on a baking sheet. Set aside.
– Place chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of gently simmering water. Stir occasionally just until melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; mix in 2 tablespoons sugar, then egg yolks and vanilla. Set aside.
– In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Still beating, gradually add remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; beat until mixture is stiff and glossy.
– Using a rubber spatula, mix about 1/3 egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture; gently fold in remaining egg-white mixture just until combined. Divide among bowls. (Puddings can be prepared in advance up to this point; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 1 day).
– Bake until tops are puffed and cracked but insides are still quite soft (a toothpick inserted in center will come out gooey), 20 to 25 minutes, or 25 to 30 minutes if puddings were previously refrigerated. Serve, warm or atroom temperature (puddings may sink as they cool), topped with ice cream, if desired.

 

Rice Pudding

 

 

Rice Pudding

Ingredients:

3/4 white rice
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt* (optional)
1 1/2 cups Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream Creamer
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
Cinnamon, nuts (optional)

 

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 375 degrees, place four 6- to 8-ounce ovenproof bowls on a baking sheet, set aside.
– Start by cooking your rice – boil the water first in a covered saucepan, then pour in the rice, give a quick stir, reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook on this low heat for about 20 minutes.
– Once the rice is cooked, pour it, the creamer and salt, if you’re using, into a larger sauce pan. Stir occasionally on medium-low heat until the mixture is thicker and creamy, about 15 minutes.
– Finally, pour in the milk and beaten egg, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Once combined, continue stirring occasionally for another 5 minutes.
– Remove from the heat, pour into your serving dishes and allow to cool.
