Chocolate and cardamom pudding with berries, and over 3,000 views




Yesterday Google recorded 3,228 page views, a new record for me, and interestingly over 2,000 views were from the UK (which is usually 4th or 5th in the audience statistics). Once again most viewed post was this one, but the Turkish delights also did well, as did all the recent Xmas posts. Of course it could simply be a robot that checks every single page and steals recipes, but never mind, it is lovely to top the 3,000 mark, and by more that 200 too!

And now to the recipe, nothing to it really, but I like chocolate with cardamom and berries, and the kids loved the glasses!!! These are quite cute grappa glasses that sit on the side and can roll around like a spinning top, in fact I don't use them much because they are quite wobbly, but they do give that 'ship-in-a-bottle' feel to food, and are perfect for verrines and fancy dinners.

I made a chocolate cream with one egg, 1/2 tbsp flour, 2 tbsp sugar, 50 g dark chocolate and 250 ml milk. In the end I added a few seeds of cardamom. I poured the chocolate pudding into the glasses and when it was cold I added raspberries, strawberries and other berries... but I have to say that this part wasn't that easy, I should get myself some long and skinny tongs!

  3. Puoi farlo vegan senza problema, non serve l'uovo e qualsiasi tipo di latte vegetale va bene: è il connubio cioccolato e cardamomo che comanda qui :-)

  4. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
