Queen of Puddings

Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Princess of Puddings

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

I opted to make four individual puddings instead of a single large one, as I didn't have the proper baking dish and my mom had just gifted me some ramekins. I made homeade breadcrumbs from leftover homeade bread and two different jams. I had never tried making a traditional bread pudding, and the bain-marie was a new technique for me. The texture of the pudding came out perfectly, but I unfortunately overbeat the merinque so I wasn't able to pipe it properly.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

Again I used locally-sourced eggs and two different jams (blackberry and strawberry-rhubarb) from my friends at the farmers market.

How did you do?

Feeling humbled.
