I haven't seen that many recipes for Nigerian puddings so it raises my curiosity to find ways of using some existing and well known desserts or well known foods, to create a real pudding that can be served as such.

Inspired by the very popular British bread and butter pudding, I decided to use puff-puff to create a winning pudding recipe;... I believe that with today's recipe, I have achieved my aim....or have I?!! I want you to tell me once you try this out.
Ingredients: (This does not include quantity to enable you the freedom to adjust levels to suit your sweet tooth...)
- You need some already prepared puff-puffs (check out my previous post on how to make them here)
- Condensed milk (optional)
- Blackcurrant and maple syrup dip (check out the recipe here)
- Some of your favourite ice-cream You may want to add some chopped dried fruits (optional)
What to do:
- Thinly and evenly slice the puff-puffs across their widths/diameters. Ensure that the slices are of even and require no further cutting into while being eaten. If cut evenly, this will also ensure proper layering when served.
- Layer the puff-puff slices into small ramekins. Drizzle some condensed milk and blackcurrant dip over the sliced puff-puff and top with a scoop of your favourite ice-cream.
- Best served when puff-puff is still hot/warm. The temperature contract between the warm puff-puff and ice cold ice-cream need to be experienced rather than be told.
