What do you think about treating yourself with a delicious dessert? The perfect one is this I am suggesting now, a condensed milk pudding for it is very tasty and you can prepare it with just a few ingredients at your disposal.
Pudding origins seem to be very old. Apparently the Romans and the Greeks used to eat on a regular basis sweet or savoury milk preparations with addition of eggs to make it condensate.
When I was a kid my mum used to prepare a very good milk pudding. When it was cooked she poured it in cups, let it get cold and then enriched it with crunchy waffles. Just a few days ago I was thinking about those moments and I felt like I had to do the same thing with my children using my irreplaceable Thermomix and when it was cooked I added sliced almonds.
Pudding is a soft dessert, loved both by adults and children and it can be made in many different versions according to different tastes. There are specific pudding moulds or things you may use as moulds that you can find at home such as plastic glasses that ease the pudding going out of the mould.
The wine I think you might accompany with this dessert is Golfo del Tigullio Moscato. Light straw yellow coloured, characteristic well-orchestrated aroma of moscato, sapid and aromatic taste it is an excellent combining with a condensed milk pudding. Serve it at a temperature of 7-8°C in small tulip shaped long-stemmed glass.
The following recipe has been sent by the very good Maria Gabriella Sergi who wrote: "Recently I've been to Brasil for my son's wedding. I've tasted some traditional recipe and I must tell you I really liked them. Then, I've started re-making them from the simplest one: the condensed milk pudding that has been forgiven in Italy. It is very easy, quick and delicious!! You must try making it".

How to prepare the Condensed Milk PuddingPrepare caramel.

In the meantime, pour 300 g of sugar and 100 g of water in a non-stick pan and melt it on a medium heat without stirring until it reaches a light mahogany colour.
Pour this mixture inside TM bowl. 3 Min. 100°C Speed 4/5. If the froth does not disappear, keep mixing for a few minutes.

When pudding is cold, keep it refrigerated for at least 2 Hours and then in the freezer for half an hour.

Maria Gabriella Sergi's adviceAbout caramel preparation, this is Thermomix method, in two steps, and it gives caramel a darker colour. You can also prepare caramel without Thermomix in this way: put sugar in a pan and place on a heat. When it is completely melted add a little bit of water and let boil for a few minutes. Pour it in a pudding mould and wait until it's cold before putting pudding in it.
The same recipe could be used for the preparation of a coconut pudding, simply adding 125 g of grated desiccated coconut and 1/2 litre of full fat milk but following the same method.

My adviceBefore serving, cover your serving dish with kaki sauce and place pudding over it. Decorate with fresh mint leaves if you like.
