Honey Pudding

Are you seeing masterchef? I always followed the Australian series ( and I’m a fan ) , and although this one is a little bit differente I try not to miss it on Saturday evening.
I think this program is too directed to the portuguese cooking-preferences of the audience … maybe? Anyway I wish Rita Neto wins.
Do you see the program ? Any favorites?

Television aside, this was one of the desserts here at home on Easter! Suc-cess!! Maybe next time I’ll add a little bit of Porto!


350g of sugar
1 tbsp of cornstarch
Water 2.5dl
4 tbsp honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon
caramel (liquid)
10 eggs

Heat the oven to 190 º C.
In a bowl add the sugar and the cornstarch and dilute this with water .
Add the eggs , honey and cinnamon powder.
Grease a big mold ( in this case I used small ones ) with liquid caramel .
Pour the preparation in the forms and take them to bake in water bath for 1 hour ( for a big mold ) or 20 minutes ( for small ones ) . To confirm , do the toothpick test .
Let them cool completely before unmolding .

The most basic pudding ever: eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla! Never fails!

Milk Tarts

Milk Tarts are always great … I like them hot or cold, with or without cinnamon! Andas soon as they’re out of the oven there is always a hand that appears to steal one here, another there … just one more!

The truth is that they are so easy to make and delicious that this a very handy recipe for those days when we just want something sweet.


SERVES: 12 tarts

1/2 L of milk
50g butter
2 Whole Eggs
1 coffe spoon of Cinnamon Powder
200g of sugar
100g Wheat Flour

Heat the milk with the butter, just until it melts.
Place all ingredients in the blender and mix.
Put in molds (I used silicone molds) and take to preheated oven ( at170 º C) for 20 to 25 minutes depending on the size of the forms.
They should stay with a gold surface.
Let them cool, unmold and serve with or without cinnamon.
