Biscuit custard pudding with a hint of coffee

Recently we had this pot luck blog party. We had oodles of good home made food. I happened to taste a delicious pudding made by Srividhya Balaji. I was hooked. She used biscuits and sponge cake to make the pudding. I kept craving for the pudding and finally decided to make biscuit and coffee pudding. The recipe reference was from here and here

This is such a tasty and simple recipe and a no bake one at that. The taste is universal in its appeal and one can fix it in a short period of time.

Layered custard delight

with a hint of coffee..

Vanilla Custard powder-3 tablespoons
Krackjack biscuits
Milk-1/2 litre
Sugar-3 tablespoons
Coffee decoction to dip biscuits half a cup

Method. Prepare custard according to the instructions on the pack. Take 1/4 cup milk from 1/2 litre milk add 3 tablespoons of custard powder and mix well. Boil remaining milk with 3 tablespoons of sugar. Remove from flame, add the custard powder and cook again stirring continuously. Ensure that the custard does not get charred. Stir till it becomes thick and coats the back of the spoon.  Set aside till warm

Now get down to making layers for the pudding. Take a biscuit and dip in coffee decoction and line your bowl. Next take a generous amount of custard and spread it on top of the biscuit. I built three layers good enough for the shape to be retained. I topped the layer with Hershey's chocolate syrup. And your done. Refrigerate for three to four hours. This is an egg-less and  hassle free recipe and tastes divine.
