I had a birthday this week. Not my birthday but my blog’s birthday. Yup, After Taste turned 1 year old. I felt like a doting parent devoting an entire post to After Taste and the past year, so I decided to pair it with some kind of cake. No birthday is ever complete without a birthday cake!
The memories of this self-saucing chocolate pudding go back maybe 10 or 15 years. It can be made for 3 or 4 people or as big as you need, to fill lots of hungry tummies on a school camp, in a trusty camp kitchen! It is just delicious, and goes super well served with some vanilla ice cream and some hot custard….amen!
I must admit, I can tell you it tastes just as good cold from the fridge the next day, too. There is just something about cold leftovers, especially dessert. Maybe I’m alone here..
Have a good weekend everyone!
