In my cupboard I have

custard powder
cocoa powder
brown sugar
plain flour (but no leavening)

(I also have normal food stuff eggs etc)

So I am begging you to tell me what I can do with the above that will result in a pudding fit for a desperate pregnant woman so I haven't got to send dh out on a cake run... because he's already been sent out twice this week

Pancakes, with brown sugar caramel.

can you make rice pudding with basmati? hmm

Oops - posted too quickly - pancake stack layered with thick chocolate custard, chill and slice like a cake.

oooh good idea SDTG will potentially ruin pancake day for me though...

I'll keep it in mind though

You could make rice pudding with basmati, but it might not be as thick, as the rice wouldn't break down as much.

Certainly. Basmati makes an excellent rice pudding.

Oh my god.

Oh my god was directed at choclate custard pudding stack

However, pancakes are a lot quicker.

You could look at it as practising for Pancake Day.

You'd have to make the custard really thick.

Look! You make this as a cake chaser for your pancake cake?

Baked sponge, drizzle honey on top when it is warm, and custard.

If you have flour, butter, eggs and butter you can make a sponge, biscuits, shortbread, crumble, pancakes, drop scones, scones, soda bread ...

Omg. How do I make chocolate custard for this pancake stack thing? Haven't made custard before, is it hard?

ReadyToPopAndFresh Thu 27-Feb-14 19:02:48

[pancakes it is then... (cake looks lovely but moved recently and havent bought a microwave yet)

breatheslowly Thu 27-Feb-14 19:05:18

What's in your fridge? Butter, eggs, milk?

ReadyToPopAndFresh Thu 27-Feb-14 19:06:24

I am going to use custard powder vatta and then will add cocoa to it..
