As posted by yours truly at RevGalBlogPals:
Our regular poster, Sally, having been oppressed by Blogger today, I
bring you a hasty Friday Five on the subject of pudding. If you are not
a fan of pudding, then you will feel solidarity with Sally, except that
you will be oppressed by pudding instead. 😉
1) First of all, thumbs up? or thumbs down? Do you like pudding?
I do. My daughter went through a very pudding-ish phase this winter, and I enjoyed the pudding right along with her.
2) Instant or cooked? (Does anyone make pudding from scratch?)
I have always had a bias against the instant type, but Light Princess convinced me otherwise. We keep some on hand for pudding emergencies. It's also handy in cakes.
3) If you had to choose, would you prefer corn pudding or figgy pudding?
Since I really don't know what's in a figgy pudding, I'll go with corn.
4) Have you ever finger painted with pudding?
Sadly, yes. Yuck. This is not the kind of project I would plan. I don't like art that sticks to me.
5) Finally, what is the matter with Mary Jane?
It's lovely rice pudding for dinner again!
(And I bet there were raisins in it, no wonder she cried!!)
Bonus: Share a favorite recipe that includes pudding!
Is it ever too soon to repeat the recipe for Apocalypse Chocolate Cake?
One Chocolate Fudge box cake mix
One 4-serving instant chocolate fudge pudding
8 oz sour cream
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. water
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
Grease and flour a Bundt or tube pan. Yeah, the spray w/ flour works. (It
really does, and believe me, I wasn’t easy to convince.)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix everything but the chocolate chips on low for one minute or until
completely mixed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix on medium for 2 to 3
minutes until very smooth, scraping as necessary. Batter will be very thick.
Fold in chocolate chips by hand.
Pour (shovel) into the pan and bake for 45 – 50 minutes, or until top springs
back when touched lightly and sides are starting to pull away from the pan. Cool
in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes.
Run a sharp knife around the edges of the pan and either turn out onto a wire
rack to cool completely, or turn out onto a cake plate and slice yourself a
warm hunk to go w/ a big glass of milk.
(Please don't ask about WW points for this. No one wants to know.)
