this is a layered pudding that uses boudoir biscuits or sponge finger biscuits and custard. very simple to prepare, and can be made a day ahead too!
the coffee decoction can be made as strong or as light as you want it. we like to have a knock out hit of coffee, but if u like it milder, by all means adjust the amount of coffee you use accordingly.
also, in hindsight, i think chopped toasted hazelnuts would be a much better topping than almonds to complement the chocolate and custard. you can also use milk chocolate or white chocolate curls.
prepare the coffee decoction by dissolving the coffee in lukewarm water. pour this in a flat dish (so its easy to dip the biscuits in). set aside.
dissolve the custard powder in 2 tablespoons of milk. set aside.
boil the rest of the milk with the sugar. when the milk is just boiled, turn off the heat and add the custard mixture, stirring well. set aside to cool slightly.
dip the savoiardi biscuits (sugar side down) in the coffee decoction for about 2 seconds each, and layer them in a dish with dipped face up. this helps the coffee seep through the whole biscuit and soak it evenly.
pour half the custard over the biscuit layer, spreading it evenly. place the dish in the fridge to set the custard.
dissolve the cocoa powder in a 2 tablespoons lukewarm water and add it to the remaining half of the custard. mix well, and put it back on a gentle heat so that the cocoa assimilates fully into the custard. set aside to cool slightly.
as the chocolate custard is cooling, remove the dish from the fridge and prepare a second layer of coffee soaked savoiardi biscuits on top of the first layer.
pour the chocolate custard over the second layer of biscuits and make sure it is spread evenly.
while the custard is still warm on top, garnish with the white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and slivered almonds.
cover the dish in cling and let it rest in the fridge to set the custard layers fully (can be done upto a day ahead, but at least 2 hours).
serve in individual serving bowls.

A three layer pudding with a varied combination of flavours and textures. Crumbly salty peanut butter crumb layer topped with a soft creamy chocolate pudding layer and then a wobbly raspberry jello layer.
Get ready to wow your friends and family with this classic Italian dessert. It packs quite a punch... I suggest that if you are attempting this recipe, try and use the exact same ingredients mentioned. Substitutions wont yield the same results. Also, all the quantities mentioned are for a medium sized dish with two layers. You can vary the quantities proportionately for a bigger dish. Alternatively, you can make small individual servings in shot glasses... be creative! Also, the original recipe calls for coffee liqueur to give it a rich, alcohol taste... but it works just fine without it too...
This is a yummilicious dessert to end a perfect meal with a wonderful blend of cream, caramel, chocolate and walnuts. I had this dessert at my lovely mother-in-law's lovely cousin's lovely home.. I love this dessert and can have it any time of the day :) Give it a try and I am sure you will love it too!!!
This recipe makes the perfect amount of muffins for a week, plus a “test” muffin to try right out of the oven! The coffee in the muffin really makes the chocolate flavor stand out, but it isn’t too rich. Whether it’s for a care package or breakfast for yourself, you won’t regret making them!
i have made this cheesecake a dozen times, and everytime it just blows people away... i like to think of it as a small slice of heaven, where chocolate and cheesecake combine... you need a springform pan for this, not too sure if a regular cake tin will suffice. recipe coutesy: Nigella Lawson (How to be a Domestic Goddess)
I have never understood the concept of layered dips. They look like pudding and how will you serve it without making a mess of all the flavours. No way a chip can be dipped through all the layers in one go right? So when I tried he layered dip, I served them in bread bowls. :D
Chocolate is almost everybody's favorite dessert. So I thought, why not bake something so luscious and rich that one just can't refuse. The chocolate flavor blends so well with the kick of the coffee. It is super delicious cake to have ever crossed your lips.
