Istanbul Pudding

(Istanbul Tatlisi)

Istanbul Pudding
Pudding Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups 3.25% milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp unsalted butter

8 giant Lady Fingers Biscuits, divide them in halves
3/4 cup milk
5-6 tbsp Strawberry spread or jam- or any kind of jam or marmalade

2 tablespoonful Nutella-Hazelnut spread
1 tablespoonful double cream 40%

Place all the pudding ingredients (except butter) in a large pot. Stir constantly over medium heat. Add the butter when you see the bubbles on the surface. Boil one more minute while stirring. Take it off the stove. Pour into the blender. Blend for about 7-8 minutes over medium speed.

Soak two pieces biscuits into the milk and put 2 pieces of them at the bottom of each bowl. Pour the half of cooked milk mixture in the bowls equally. Soak the rest of the biscuits into the milk and place them over it. Spread the strawberry jam equally over them. And pour the rest of the pudding mixture in the bowls equally.

Mix Nutella and cream and arrange the tops a dollop of it.

Let it cool for an hour. Cover the top and place in the fridge. If you like you can sprinkle some pistachios, coconut flakes or cinnamon on top before serving. This dessert also goes well with ice cream.

4 servings.

I should try this at home. I am sure my 2 yo will enjoy this as a snack. I don't have pistachio tho. Maybe I can put peanuts instead.
