Some recipes are just too good to keep to yourself! Thanks to my new De’Longhi Grinder and De’Longhi Espresso Machine, I am discovering new ones every day! I had no idea that my wonderful cup of coffee that I now enjoy in the mornings could also make recipes that require coffee to be better too! Not only can I make a creamy Caramel Macchiato in my kitchen, but I can brew a Caffee Mocha, Italian Macchiato and so much more. But my new favorite thing to do so far is to add rich, delicious espresso to my menu to make it even more delicious. I found a recipe for Espresso Chocolate Pudding and have made a variation of it before. But adding fresh brewed Espresso with perfectly fine and rich ground beans and brewed with procession right in my kitchen just took it to a whole other level!
Now, before we get into how to make this 5 star restaurant quality pudding at home, let me just say that my mornings have gotten so much better! You know how you crave your morning coffee the night before? Well, I crave it the moment I am done with it now. Because of the rich and creamy flavor that the De’Longhi brews, I no longer use artificial sweetener in my cup. I am not kidding. The milk streamer brings out the sweetness in the milk and my cup is now perfect without any additions! I always wondered why I did not have to add it to my coffee house drinks and now I know. Making espresso drinks at home just got better for me too!
Now I know what you are thinking. How can something so simple make all the difference in the world in a cup of coffee and recipes. It does. Trust me! Case in point is the Espresso Chocolate Pudding recipes that sent my taste buds into happy land. This rich pudding almost has a creamy cake texture and a small helping will satisfy that sweet tooth instantly!
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 7 oz of dark chocolate
- 1 full cup of espresso
- shot of apricot nectar (or your favorite liqueur)
- Brush your mold or ramekins with some of the apricot nectar (or alcohol). Combine the butter and sugar in a saucepan and stir over a medium heat until it becomes smooth and light. Grate or break the the dark chocolate and add it in, followed by the coffee and nectar. Mix well and pour into a pudding mold or individual ramekins. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 ½ hours and serve cold
- Decorate with extra grated chocolate or cream.
The rich and frothy espresso brewed on the De’Longhi makes this pudding decadent and amazing. Seriously, this is the stuff you order after a medium rare steak and delicious side. It is what you serve when you want to impress people!
When was the last time you had a restaurant quality dessert at home?
