Add a spoonful of the hot-milk mixture to the eggs and stir to blend. Stir the egg mixture back into the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the pudding is thickened and reaches 165 degrees to 170 degrees Fahrenheit. 4. Set a sieve over a bowl and strain the pudding.

Winter Pudding Ingredients 2 x 125g packs blackberries 125g pack blueberries 1 large pear, peeled, cored and sliced 1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced 25g (1oz) Hermesets Granulated Sweetener slices sliced white bread, crusts removed Preparation Put the fruits, reserving a few for decoration if liked, into a pan with the Hermesets Granulated Sweetener and 4 tbsp water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the fruit is just soft. Base line a 1 litre (2 pint) pudding basin with a circle of baking parchment to make removal easier. Cut a circle of bread from one slice large enough to cover the base. Cut the other slices in half and arrange, upright, round the curved sides of the basin so they are slightly overlapping each other and the circle in the bottom. Carefully spoon the fruit mixture into the basin, pouring the juices over the bread to colour it. Level the top and cover with more bread slices. Place a saucer over the top, securing with a heavy weight. Chill overnight. Remove the saucer and loosen the sides with a palette knife. Put a plate over the top, turn over and the pudding should drop onto the serving plate. Remove the paper and serve with whipped cream or flavoured yogurt.
Apricot pudding Ingredients For a loaf tin or terrine mould holding about 1 litre Serves 8 Pudding: 500 g very ripe apricots 5 tbsp granulated sweetener ½ vanilla pod ½ dl single cream 1 packet Agar-Agar* Sauce 250 g apricots 3 tbsp Granulated Hermesetas 2 tbsp Amaretto or a few drops bitter almond essence Preparation Halve and stone apricots, set aside 100 g of the fruit. Purée the rest in a blender together with the Hermesetas, scraped vanilla seeds, cream and agar-agar. Stir the mixture in a pan and bring to the boil, simmer briefly, and leave to cool slightly. Add the apricot halves. Turn the mixture immediately into a mould lined with cling film. Chill for a few hours until set. For the sauce, purée the apricots with the Hermesetas and Amaretto. Unmould the pudding, cut into slices, and serve with the sauce. *This recipe calls for Agar-agar. Its thickening power depends upon the particular brand and, therefore, we recommend that the directions on the package be followed carefully.
VANILLA PUDDING Ingredients 200 ml milk ½ vanilla bean 2 egg yolks 50 g sugar 10 g flour or cornstarch (15 g butter) (2 tbsp cream) Preparation Use a whole vanilla bean cut in half crosswise. Do not slit the bean open, unless you do not mind the pudding being spotted with vanilla seeds. Place the milk and the vanilla bean half in a saucepan and bring slowly almost to the boil. Meanwhile, whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar until ribbons form when you lift the beater(s) up. Add the flour or the cornstarch through a sieve and mix well. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg-sugar mixture, whisking continually. Pour the mixture back to the saucepan and bring rapidly to the boil, stirring continually. Cook, stirring, for 1 to 3 minutes (add the butter and the cream) and strain into a bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent it from forming a skin. Stir the pudding every now and then during cooling. When cooled, spoon the pudding in serving dishes, cover and chill in refrigerator. Garnish with a dollop of whipped, vanilla-flavored cream, candied citrus peel strips, mint or lemon balm sprigs,etc.
Blackcurrant Pudding Ingredients For a terrine mould holding approx. 1 litre Serves g blackcurrants 1 dl water 1 tbsp lemon juice 6 tbsp Granulated Hermesetas 8 sheets gelatine, soaked in cold water 250 g low fat quark (curd cheese) Preparation Combine blackcurrants, water, lemon juice, and Hermesetas in a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer 2 minutes, then purée the mixture. Sieve the purée, add the drained gelatine and stir. Fold in the quark lightly. Pour mixture into a terrine mould, leave in the refrigerator until set. Place the mould briefly in hot water, unmould the pudding and cut into slices. Have the slices diagonally and serve on chilled plates.
