Ugly Double Chocolate Strawberry Delight

“There is in every true woman’s heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.”

I believe that a woman, a regular middle class woman, shoulders a lot more responsibility than her male counterpart. And she shoulders it really well, in a way that no man is capable of. I believe that behind the success of every person, there is a woman, who gave selflessly and without limits and that it is important to show these women your appreciation once in a while. Though women have proved themselves over and over again, so many people in our country think that they are not entitled to the same rights and freedom as men. Unfortunate !

I am glad that god chose me to be a woman, and fortunately, I was given equal opportunities as my brother. (Though I may not have utilized these opportunities as well as he did). Anyhow, I think the occasion calls for a celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a Double Chocolate Strawberry Delight? 🙂

I must confess that this dessert does not look very pretty, infact I am not sure it looks like a dessert at all. But I assure you that it tastes wonderful, and when you serve it, everyone is going to think that you put a lot of effort into it, but it is pretty simple to make.

Summary

  • Cuisine: american
  • Course: dessert
  • Cooking Time: 90 mins

Ingredients

100 grams dark chocolate , chopped
100 grams white chocolate , chopped
180 grams fresh strawberries , chopped
100 grams almonds
1/2 cup milk
50 grams butter
2 tablespoons plain flour
150 grams powdered sugar + sugar 4 tablespoons
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind

Steps

  1. Blanch the almonds in hot water for a minute. Wash with cold water and slip the skins off. Soak the almonds in milk for half an hour, and grind to a fine paste.
  2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar on the chopped strawberries and keep aside.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and white chocolate separately, by double boiling, in 25 grams butter each. (If you taste the chocolate right now, you will realise that melted chocolate tastes so much better than it’s solid form). Let it cool. Divide the almond mixture equally between the two chocolates and mix well.
  4. Mix the powdered sugar, eggs, vanilla essence and plain flour to bring everything together. Divide equally into the chocolate almond paste, and mix together.
  5. Pour equal amounts of white and dark chocolate mix into pudding moulds/dessert bowls, but do not mix together. The idea is to be able to distinguish between the two chocolates in the final product. Guess you can try and create ribbons or designs, but such creativity did not occur to me while I was actually cooking. Add one third of the chopped strawberries to the pudding moulds.
  6. Place in a double boiler and cook for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into it comes out clean. Refrigerate for atleast 4-5 hours.
  7. Make a strawberry sauce by blending together the remaining strawberries, lemon rind and two tablespoons of sugar.
  8. Demould the pudding from the moulds, pour the strawberry sauce over it and serve.

You can use whatever kind of chocolate you like and top with chopped chocolate.And dont forget to let the kids lick the melted chocolate from the pans before washing up.
