Emma Kobolakis 1 comment

It's natural to associate crème brûlée with overindulgence. A Lighter Way to Bake uses light cream and lemon to craft a lighter version. It's still sweet and creamy, but not as heavy. More

How about both, as well as fresh lychees? It's the combination of these diverse elements that makes every bite of this dessert so uniquely delicious. More

This recipe for panna cotta takes a bit of advance planning in order to set the layer of hibiscus gelee and pomegranate over the top of the coconut custard, but is well worth the extra time. More

Bananas and nuts are an idiot-proof combination, but the addition of malted milk is like having a milkshake in cake form. Which is to say, excellent. More

Clio Goodman's Chocolate Pudding

Emma Kobolakis 7 comments

Even people who don't like pudding like chocolate pudding. You may recall the stovetop classic made with powdered mix, but why go that route with a recipe as simple as this? A hefty portion of chocolate and more than a few cups of milk yield smooth, deep, sweetness that serves a crowd. More

A double dose of white chocolate goes into this One Bowl Baking bread pudding: first, it's folded into the custard base, and next, it's melted and mixed with heavy cream to make a sauce. The smooth white chocolate contrasts beautifully with chewy chunks of baguette. Simply sublime. More

Graham Cracker Figgy Pudding

Cakespy cakespy 5 comments

Rich in diced figs and spices, this pudding gives a hint of fruitcakey-ness, but with a flavor that is far superior. The figs give it a mellow, almost honey-like sweetness, and keep it just moist enough to be slightly sticky, but not so sticky that it sticks to your teeth. More

Cranberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding

Cakespy cakespy 6 comments

This pudding, inspired by the highly delicious White Chocolate Bread Pudding at the Palace Cafe, has the soul of a New Orleans bread pudding. But it's gussied up for the season with cranberries, which add a wonderful tart contrast to the white chocolate in the butter and cream-rich custard, and a nice glug of bourbon, which certainly doesn't hurt anything. It's a perfectly decadent entrée into the Thanksgiving season. More
