Brazilian Brandy Pudding

Here’s a delicious and unusual alternative to the vitality-sapping traditional suet puddings. Invented by my wife Sally it’s one of our family favourites.

Sounds exotic, doesn’t it? So put aside those memories of school dinners and take a chance on this fabulous posh tapioca. Made from the root of the Manioc (Cassava) shrub, native to central and South America, it’s the staple energy food of the Rain Forest Indians.

This high starch, ultra low-fat dessert really will get those brain cells buzzing.

25g/1oz tapioca
300ml/10 fl oz milk
1 tbspn honey
2 tbspns apricot brandy
25g/1oz dried apricots, snipped finely
4 tbspns organic fromage frais
1 small punnet raspberries or other fresh berries

Method
1 Warm tapioca and milk gently and bring to boil, stirring constantly

2 Simmer till thick and creamy - 10-15 mins

3 Stir in honey, brandy and apricots

4 Pour into oven-proof dish and bake at 200C/400F/gas 6 for 30 mins - or until slightly brown

5 Serve hot or cold, in mounds, topped with fromage frais and surrounded by fruit
