Old-Fashioned Velvet Pudding Cups

Old-Fashioned Velvet Pudding Cups always take me back to my earlier years as a kid when I lived with my grandparents.

I knew the pudding by it's Afrikaans name " Fluweel Poeding" which is very popular in South-Africa.

My granny used to make this fairly often, although I can not remember her making the Velvet Pudding individually.

The pudding was always in a big bowl, which might have seemed huge to me at the time, seeing as I was quite young at the time.

But I am an individual dessert kind of person, and most always would try and work a way into a dessert to make it a serve-per-person. This way I always have enough for everyone in nice, even sizes.

Ever seen when someone tucks into a one bowl dessert or pudding ? Well, I have, and some people just do not get the meaning of "... hey, there are 6 of us for dessert.." Now, without putting out names left right and center, I have come to know when and to whom I would rather serve individual desserts, and know there will still be enough for everyone else.

Back to the old-fashioned Velvet Pudding - this is absolutely fantastic. The texture and even a little of the taste, reminds me of both a custard pie and a creme brulee at the same time. Silky smooth, with a sweet layer between the pudding and the meringue, which makes all the difference in the world. The Apricot Jam definitely balances the flavors wonderfully.

We have the Puddings, warm during Winter or at room temperature during Summer. If you plan on serving the Velvet Pudding at room temperature, you can make the pudding in advance - scoop into individual bowls, or a single bowl - top with the Jam and let stand (no longer than 2 hours though) until you are ready to serve.

Top with the Egg White, bake a few minutes and leave until cooled. This cooling will be quick as the pudding is only in the oven for a few short minutes.

  9. Individual servings make it easier in my house - with two teenagers, that's about the only way I can guarantee everyone gets some dessert sometimes! I'm a big fan of old-fashioned desserts!
