Note: The internal utensil which has the caramel and pudding mixture should be smaller in circumference than the cooker, so that it goes in the cooker.
I am feeling very excited these days. I am very happy that I am going to attend the Indian Food Bloggers Meet which will be held in Bangalore on 1st and 2nd August 2014. I was the last to register but I feel that I am extremely lucky to get the last slot. I am sure I am going to have a great time there by meeting a lot of food bloggers whom I have met only in the virtual world. This food blogger meet which is first of it’s kind is going to be exciting with a lot of events like talks on food blogging, food photography, a masterclass from KitchenAid and lot lot more.
KitchenAid is one of the sponsors for this event and they have organised a contest. That is cooking with Plums. When I read “Plums” I said “WHAT?”. I am not a great fan of plums. But as a foodie, I should be able to make a good recipe with any ingredient and when I saw that the prize was a KitchenAid chopper, I felt I should definitely give it a try.
I put on my creativity cap and started thinking. After a lot of thinking, I came up with this innovative recipe which I named – Caramel Pudding With Plums.
The recipe is very close to my heart. That is because, my Mom taught me the caramel pudding recipe when I was just learning to cook. I am feeling good that I mastered it upto perfection. Today I modified this recipe and added plum’s to it. I thought of adding plum slices and plum puree to this recipe. I was a bit doubtful regarding the taste and how it will turn up. It was actually an experiment which I ventured upon. I was extremely happy when the pudding turned out great. The mild flavor of coffee, vanilla and plums have got together and brought a very nice and unique taste to the pudding.
Now was the task to decorate it. Since I participated in this contest at the last moment, I did not get time to get cherries for decoration. So I used jelly chocolates. Next time when I make this, I will get cherries and surely I will have the KitchenAid chopper with me to make the puree and slices:)
