Old School Pudding Recipes!

Found 31st Jul 2011
I was out with friends last night as we got onto the subject of old school dinner puddings!

This got me thinking and since it's a Sunday, I have been baking with my stepson.

We have produced:
Cornflake Tart
Concrete Chocolate
and will make the green mint custard later!

Thought I's share my recipe with you guys!! Anyone else have an old school favorite and possibly any recipes?

Not just puddings!

510g sugar
55g cocoa
1 egg (size 4) MEDIUM
pinch of salt
1.Mix all dry ingredients together.
2. Rub in margarine.
3. Beat the egg and add to the mixture. (for best results mix entirely in a food mixer or processor).
4. Knead lightly until mixture blends together.
5. Press into well-greased shallow tins.
6. Bake gently for 25 - 30 minutes Gas mark 4. Do not over bake.
7. Put a lid on the tin and keep warm otherwise crunch will set hard - like concrete.

MINT CUSTARD

300mls milk
20grms cornflour
2 tbsp caster sugar
peppermint extract
green food colouring (optional)

1. Measure 300mls milk into a jug.
2. In a small bowl mix together the sugar and cornflour and several tablespoons of the milk to make a smooth paste.
3. Place the milk in a pan and add the cornflour and sugar paste. Stir well to combine and slowly bring to the boil stirring all the time.
4. As the mixture thickens add the peppermint extract to taste. If using add the food colouring.
CORNFLAKE TART

Shortcrust Pastry

6oz/180g flour
3 oz/80g butter
1floz/30ml water

Filling

4oz/110g Golden Syrup
3oz/80g Cornflakes
2oz/40g Butter
1oz/30g Sugar
4oz/110g Red Jam

Method

1. Line the tart trays (I used a flan dish) with the pastry and crimp the edges

2. **** the pastry all over and bake blind, for approx 20 minutes at Gas 6/400F/200C/180 Fan

3. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a large heavy bottomed saucepan, then stir in the cornflakes.

4. Spread a thin layer of jam over the pastry case and place the cornflake mix on top.

5. Return the tart to the oven for 5 minutes to allow the mixture to set. More then 5 mins, the cornflakes burn. 2nd attempt was much better!

Get a big bag of marshmallows, some butter (or marge) and a box of rice krispies.

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add rice krispies. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

You can add chocolate chips or even replace the rice krispies with coco pops if you want it a bit more chocolaty.
