Sugar High Friday :“Surprise Inside

I know I had been MIA for about a year now, and I'm very sorry that I can't participate in any food blogging events for that period of time. Now when I'm finally back to civilisation, the dead line is over...

But... “The Veggie Evangelist” said I still have hope till the round up is posted.

So... here goes nothing...

Hidden Black Beauty.

Black Currant Pudding
350 g blackcurrant
100 ml water
50 g caster sugar
5 tsp grounded ginger
1 packet of jelly powder

1. Simmer the whole list of things, minus the jelly powder, in a pot for 10-15 minutes. Sieve it till the juices flows out.
2. Simmer the juice with the packet of jelly powder. Shape the pudding using ice cube tray. Let it cool.

Tofu Pudding
250 g soft tofu
150 ml milk
50 g caster sugar
1 sachet gelatine + 2 tsp water
200 ml whipped cream
1 tsp vanilla essence

1. Liquidize tofu, milk and sugar using blender.
2. Mixed the gelatine with the water in a small bowl. Melt it by steaming it over a bowl of hot water. Add on to the liquid tofu concoction.
3. Beat the cream and vanilla essence till soft peak appeared. Fold it into the liquid tofu evenly.

4. Prepare a small size bowl or ramekin. Fill one third of it with the liquid tofu. Let it cool. After it is hard, place one cube of blackcurrant pudding on top of it before filling it to the top with liquid tofu. Let it set.

There were two element of surprise here (especially for the carnivore): The blackcurrant pudding inside and the fact that it was made of tofu. Even an anti-vegetarian like me loved it.

If you don’t like blackcurrant pudding, you can always discard the part of adding the jelly powder and made it into a blackcurrant sauce. For those who don’t know what soft tofu is, you can always use normal tofu and add water to the recipe to get the smoothness of the liquidized tofu.

I guess lack of sleep did not bode well for me, and tomorrow I had to continue my journey away from civilisation again, so I bid you all adieu.

And the round up is out!
