Chocolate and Fruit Pudding

Hello My Lovely Readers,

Can there be a better combination than Chocolate and Fruits? I Guess NO.Β 

Do you have left over dry cake at home? Are you looking for an easy homemade dessert recipe? Do you want to make a dessert which doesnt require baking? If Yes, My Chocolate and Fruit Pudding is just the bestest answer to all these queries. πŸ™‚


Wedding in the Family and Holidaying alot, and I am not being able to post as regular as i used to 😦 I feel so so sad about this. Just few more days and I shall be back in form :)Summers means food is away and more fruits and veggies are in. Chocolate and fruit Pudding is just the perfect one to make these summers. These are irresistible. The best part about the pudding is that there is no baking required. It just gets ready in minutes and you have the best dessert ready.

P.S- I was super tensed while experimenting this dessert. But I got it right and was amazed as to how delicious these taste. ❀

Also these are the best utilization of left over cakes. Not only that you could get one dry cake straight away from the market and make these most amazing pudding in the world… These are my favorite and I am so delighted to finally share them. This is a 10 on 10 rated recipe and favorite of everybody in the house.


A chilled pudding is all you need for a sinful summer indulgence. Puddings have always been my favorite. They were like a all in one dessert for me… Fruits..Cake…Cream…Chocolate… Everything i like eating ;)I simply love baking and I could bake any time of the day. But some days when I am not in a mood to bake or there is no electricity and I dont know how would I survive without my oven…. I try recipes where baking isnt required. This pudding is just the outburst of one of such experiments I perform in the kitchen. I am so happie with the way this pudding turned out.

The fruits that go along well with these are all sorts of citrus fruits. They get along amazingly with chocolate and make the best combination ever. You could use… Strawberries, Kiwi, Orange, Raspberries etc. As I always say that you can create your own version of any recipe. I would be glad if you would try these and give this a different form πŸ™‚

This is 10 star rated recipe because it gets ready in no time. Also if you have the ingredients ready, all you need to do is add layers and your pudding would be ready. The amazing taste of this pudding is gonna surprise you, and you would still be wondering as to how easy they were to make.


Let get started now


Serves – 4

Prep Time- 1 hour (Including the time to chill the cake and pudding)

Layering Time- 5 mins

Chocolate ganache:

  • Dark Chocolate (Compound)- 100Β gms
  • White Chocolate (Compound)- 50 gms
  • Fresh Cream-2 Cups ( Amul Cream is used here)
  • Corn Syrup- 1 1/2 Tbsp
  • Sugar- 2 Tbsp
  • Vanilla Essence- 1 Tbsp
  • Grated chocolate to top

For the Fruit Layer

  • Strawberries- 50 gms
  • Kiwi- 50 gms
  • Orange- 50 gms
  • Blackberries- 50 gms
  • (All fruits must be chopped and left in sugar syrup for about 15 to 20 mins in the refrigerator)

For the cake layer

  • Dry cake- 2 cups ( It could be of any flavor u prefer)
  • Vanilla Frosting- 3 tbsp ( You could use any readymade frosting, However if you wish to make it all by yourself Click Here.)


1. Start with the bottom most layer. In a bowl, Crumble the cake with your hands. Now add the frosting and mix nicely until is is combined. For more details on how to use your frosting correctly check my Cake Poppers Recipe.

2. Chop the fruits of your choice, you could only make it with one fruit too.

3. While the fruits and the cake layer are chilling, Make the chocolate pudding, In a heavy bottom pan, add cream. Once the cream starts boiling add in chocolate.

4. When the chocolate melts down completely add the remaining ingredients and stir until the desired consistency is achieved. I like mine a little thick.

5. Cover the pudding with a plastic wrap and let it chill in the freezer. This should take about 30 mins.

6. The best part comes now , where in you would layer the pudding. Start by the bottom most layer.

7. In a serving glass, Add about a inch and a half layer of cake, followed by a 2 inch layer of fruits and top with loads of chocolate pudding,

8. You can add fruits and grated chocolate for decoration.

9. Serve Chilled.



Your chocolate and fruit pudding is now ready πŸ™‚

* The cake and the frosting can be of any flavor you prefer.

* Make sure the pudding is chilled before serving.

* If the pudding does not take the desired consistency you may add more corn syrup.

*Make sure you use a heavy bottom pan as the pudding will stick to it.

* If you want to make a single fruit pudding, Go Ahead. You can make these with just strawberries too.

* Do not add extra frosting it will ruin the flavor.

Strawberryy Vanilla Chocochip Muffins

Strawberrry is my favouritee.….

When they are in season I try to incorporate them in everything i make….. If you have read “KNOW ME” Page of mine you would know how much I love strawberries πŸ˜€

IMG_20140228_221536_wm (1)

These muffins are sooo prettty lookingg….. The combination of strawberries and chocochips goes really really well and they look extremely tempting…… Before you begin lemmme warn you….They are going to finish within minutes…so make them enough……LOL..

IMG_20140228_222625_wm (1)

For me…. It was more like an experiment…so i didn’t make much… I just made a batch and within minutes they were in demand…Ooopsy :(…. So Yeah… Make lots and lots of them, Coz one just cant be enough.. My mom has been wanting to eat muffins since long….She prefers vanilla or fruit flavors over chocolate….. while my brother likes it more chocolatyyy…. so i was there not knowing what to do….. So basically I incorporated the favorite flavors of each one of us………..and there it was my “STRAWBERRY VANILLA CHOCOCHIP MUFFINS”

20140228_155113_wm (1)

They tasted heavenly and are sooo tempting….. The fragrance of vanilla while baking will just water your mouth and you just wanna eat them as soon as they are out of the oven…. but they taste amazing once chilled. As i always say, you can have your own version of it….so Β you could omit strawberries and add your favorite fruit…like raspberry or blueberry or mixed…. the choice is yours…. If you dont want the flavor of the fruit then you could simply go ahead and bake a Vanilla Chocochip Muffin…. πŸ™‚ :*

These muffins are so fudgyy and sooo moist because of the fruit…… It just melts in your mouth. Β They are super easyy to make….So do try them yourself.

  1. In a large bowl whisk butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. To this mixture add yogurt and vanilla extract and whisk until its light in color and smooth. You could use an electric whisker or whisk with your hand. Whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. 20140228_130557_wm (1)
  4. Sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix.
  5. Add the dry ingredients slowly in portions to the batter and mix. You could use a spatula now if its getting to messy with the whisker.
  6. Once you have combined the dry and the wet ingredients together to a smoooth paste.. add fresh strawberries and chocochips.
  7. 20140228_132018_wm (1)
  8. Just incorporate them well in the mixture. You don’t need to mix much.

  10. IMG_20140228_183602_wm (1)
  11. Now line your muffin tray with muffin cups. Don’t worry if you do not have muffin cups… you can simply grease your muffin tray and add the batter directly.
  12. Fill in the batter and do not overfill.
  13. IMG_20140228_185307_wm (1)
  14. Bake for about 15 mins first and check if the muffins are done. If they are not, you could bake them for additional 5 mins.
  15. Lets the muffins cool down, before you enjoy eating them.

You can also serve the muffins with Ice-cream, Whipped cream , Cream Custard or Fruit syrups and Fresh fruits.

I like mine with more and more strawberries πŸ˜€ I just cant get enough of them.

You can skip vanilla extract and add strawberry extract if you want dont want the vanilla flavor incorporated.

You can decorate them simply with Icing Sugar and they are ready to go.

Fresh Fruit Tarts

TARTS !! ( My All Time Favorite :D)

As a kid, Tarts always attracted me at the bakery shop….. I enjoyed them more than anything….. Well back then i never thought i would be trying making them at home…. Hell Yeah!!! I MADE THEM :D………… It didn’t take long for it to become my family’s favorite tooo…. I have been requested to make these tarts again and again πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€


This classic Fruit Tart has three components, a beautiful edged sweet pastry crust, a luscious pastry and custard cream, and lots of Β rows of fresh fruit. It looks enticing whether you use a single fruit or a medley of fruits and berries. As i always say ” YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN VERSION”

The components of the Fruit Tart can be made a few days in advance….. But you will enjoy the most when you assemble it….. They are sooo gorgeous looking that you wont be able to stop adoring them….. And Yess…Be careful – they will finish within minutes. The cookie like pastry crust has a sweet flavor and a crisp texture…The crust is pre-baked in advanced and once cooled…. I like to seal it with chocolate!! You could use anything of your choice like… Jam (of any flavor) or chocolate or strawberry syrup etc….. The choice is yours.

The sealing of the crust with chocolate or jam prevents the filling from softening the crust over time!!

Of course, the first thing you notice about a fruit tart is the fruit. The fruits can be arranged in concentric circles or rows, or it can be randomly piled on the cream. There are so many fruits to choose from but it is important that the fruit looks and tastes its best. “ Try use as fresh fruits as you can. ” While berries, with their vibrant colors, are always popular, other fruits are nice as well. Slices of kiwi, pineapple, melon, peaches, plums, nectarines, and mango are some fruits that work well. If you like, you can glaze the fruit with either an apricot glaze or red currant jelly (for red colored fruits) to give the fruit a beautiful shine and it also prevents the fruit from drying out.
