S'mores Pudding

This is it! Our last recipe from Baked Elements! I only joined in on this book about a year ago, but because of the expedited baking schedule of the last five months, have been able to make about half of the recipes. I’ll do a little recap below of my favourite recipes from the book, and things I still want to make, but first, let’s talk about this week’s recipe.

It’s well known around here that I love S’mores, so this was a perfect way to close out the book for me. This is a rich, smooth boozy chocolate pudding, layered up with toasted graham cracker crumbles, and topped with a bourbon marshmallow topping. I had some issues with my marshmallow not thickening, but couldn’t be bothered to re-make it – no matter, it was still delicious. I loved the differences in texture going on here – smooth, crunchy and gooey – with the bourbon shining through the whole thing.

So that’s the end of the Booze section of Baked Elements! Here’s a little recap of the recipes I made and my favourite recipe from this section:

You can find the recipe for the S’mores Pudding here!

Okay! Here are the 10 sections from Baked Elements, and my favourite recipe from each one!

  1. Peanut Butter: Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones
  2. Lemon & Lime: (I actually didn’t make anything from this section…I don’t like citrus desserts!)
  3. Caramel: Turtle Thumbprint Cookies
  4. Booze: S’mores Style Chocolate Bourbon Pudding with Bourbon Marshmallow Topping
  5. Pumpkin: Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
  6. Malted Milk Powder: Vanilla Bean Malt Cake
  7. Cinnamon: Classic Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
  8. Cheese: Poppy Seed Pound Cake with Brown Butter Glaze
  9. Chocolate: Chewy Chocolate Mint Cookies with Chocolate Chunks
  10. Banana: Honey Banana Poppy Seed Bread

My favourite recipe of the whole book is *insert drumroll here*: Vanilla Bean Malt Cake! I am obsessed with that thing! It was the fluffiest cake I have ever made, and I love it. But you can’t go wrong with any of the recipes in my Top 10!

There are still a few things I’d like to make that I missed and they are: Oopsy Daisy Cake, Whiskey Peach Upside-Down Cake, Devil Dogs with Malted Buttercream Filling and Brooksters.

And with that, we have a short break, and then we start baking out of Baked Occasions! I can’t wait!

This sounds amaaaazing – I love all things s’mores too! And since vanilla cake is my absolute favourite, now I need to make that :)

I love your little mason jars. I haven’t made the Vanilla Bean Malt cake, but I will add it to my to do list!

I am totally loving the pudding in mason jars! I can picture taking these desserts to friends for dinner (with the lids on) and then adding the marshmallow topping and toasting in front of everyone. Or to work. hmm.

Oh, I would have loved your Bourbon version! And your presentation is great!

I’m really excited about continuing along this journey as we start Occasions!

How cute is your little mason jar??? Love how it shows all the layers.


Sheri October 26, 2014 at 10:22 pm

Your layers are just what I had hoped mine would be!

Besides this pudding, my other favorite from this section was the chocolate Bourbon tart. I really liked the malt cake too. I’d say there are fewer recipes from this book that I’d make over and over again than in the first two. Can’t wait for Elements!

This photo is just perfect, with the stunning blue backdrop – love it! Good job!

OMG, this was *to die for*. Seriously, the perfect way to close out the book! I’m a huge s’mores fan too, and this was just perfection. I subbed the Milk Bar graham crust because it’s my favorite ever– I highly recommend it. (I wasn’t stoked on the cinnamon here anyway.) I love your little jars and the recipe recaps, Robyn. Onward to Baked Occasions! :)
