Chocolate Orange Pudding
June 19, 2015
Here are a few of my favorite things about Winter, in no particular order:
1. Well-loved soft woollen jumpers
2. An open fire
3. Listening to rain on the roof while cozy in bed
4. A walk in the brisk cold to invigorate the senses and generate some fresh energy and thoughts
5. Hot chocolate
6. A break from jobs that need to be done in the garden
8. Red wine
10. Slow cooked meat
You may notice that dessert does feature on the list. We are not regular dessert eaters, it is a very occasional treat. At the end of a grey, miserably cold Winters day dessert can brighten everyone’s day. For this reason dessert tends to feature on lour family menu more often in Winter than it does in Summer.
This self saucing pudding is a dessert I created for the kids a couple of weeks ago. It features seasonal oranges and a double dose of chocolate for good measure. Self saucing pudding is a dessert that I had as a treat when I was growing up. This version is milk free, but not dairy free. There is minimal sugar in this recipe so it is not overly sweet. The kids will not go wild before bed from the sugar intake in this dessert.
What do you love about Winter?
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
