In this cooking process, the pudding is put into a steamer, which is a cooking utensil that consists of a vessel with a perforated bottom placed over one containing water. As the water boils, the steam rises and cooks the pudding in the upper or perforated vessel. This pudding recipe was handed down from my cousin sister. I have done some changes of my own. This dessert is perfect for entertaining your guest especially the kids. This is a delightful coffee flavored easy to prepare creamy pudding with very less ingredients.
Tips- If you remove the pudding from mould when it is warm, you wont get a neat texture. You will have to refrigerate the pudding for 2 hours or more and then unmould it. I was in a hurry and I unmould it when it was warm, so the texture was soft gooey and taste yummy. While serving, if you want you can top the pudding with chocolate sauce. To test if the pudding is cooked, in the middle portion just skewer with a knife, if it will be wiped clean of any mixture then you can take it out.
