BANANA CARAMEL PUDDING TRIFLE

Pudding is a type of food that can either be a dessert or a savoury non sweet dish as a part of the main meal. Puddings can be baked, steamed or boiled and it’s definition varies in few countries.

We get umpteen recipes for puddings on the net, but what better than following your favourite baking master? I am not a trained chef, but have learnt baking by watching other chefs, learning from magazines, recipe books, friends or family!

I’ve always loved puddings, especially the caramelised ones! Another favourite of mine is white chocolate. So when I thought of making this pudding, I decided to add the white chocolate chips lying around in my refrigerator.

Made this awesome pudding with slight changes and my own white chocolate touch which is totally optional! And the uniqueness of this recipe is that the caramel has to be poured from the top before baking, which during the process dives in and settles down at the bottom of the pie dish.

Went on further to create this delicious dessert wherein the warm pudding is topped with vanilla ice cream, caramelised bananas and walnuts and a drizzle of some Strawberry Sweet Lime compote! The tartness of the compote helps to cut in the richness this dessert and gives it a delicious tangy edge!
