Home Sweet Home Bakealong 51: Chocolate Pudding Pie

January 23, 2016

I went on a baking binge last week and made three of these HSH bakes in one go so I’m working my way through the writeups…

As with many of their “pies” (ahem, tarts) Hummingbird guild the lily a bit by adding mounds of whipped cream onto of something already quite sweet and rich. It makes for much prettier photos but is entirely unnecessary. They should trust themselves more, this is good without the cream. No one is going to care what it looks like after one spoonful.24542206126_ec340e46ed

In addition to the lack of cream to make photos look good, I also had a lack of time. That is, specifically, lack of time before my chief taster wanted to eat it. “Ok you can have it now but you have to at least take some photos on your phone so I’ve got proof”.

By the way, that base is part chocolate chip cookie and part shreddies (the cookie pack was 50g short). I can confirm that this is an excellent combination.

It might be fair to argue that this recipe for Chocolate Marshmallow pie is equally effective and a lot less hassle to make. It is however less full of cream and butter so arguably not as worthwhile.
