Marble Cake Pudding


Marble Cake Pudding

One of the most nostalgic pudding/ dessert from my childhood is this delicious marble cake pudding. It is my mom's most popular dessert, and undoubtedly the best. It's so simple to make. The marble cake is store bought , you may use home made cake, but I usually make this pudding as a last moment dessert,so that it doesn't get complicated and saves time.

Similar to tiramisu, the marble cake pudding tastes better the more it sits in the fridge. The cake soaks up all the cream and the cocoa powder that is dusted gives it that chocolatey taste. This marble cake pudding is like the OG milk cake of my childhood. The marble cake is tightly layered over which a custard cream is prepared poured and make a couple of layers which is set overnight. The pudding can be topped up with fresh fruits, funfetti, chocolate sprinkles etc.
Whenever mama makes this dessert for a party at home, the dessert dish is always wiped clean.
This was a dessert that mama prepared from what a friend of hers was saying in their usual conversation, about a dessert she had at a party. In an Era when there was no google/ YouTube for her to check and try recipes. Basically she was not told the entire ingredients, she made out and made it on her own, voila ! The perfect dessert for parties. I need to try out more recipes from her recipe book, since it's in malayalam, I find it very difficult to read them, yet my sheer curiosity in cooking has helped me learn reading malayalam by reading her recipes. LOL .
