We always need a simple dessert to save us from a bad mood and to create cherish in the family or even alone
I call dessert a treatment for a bad day, even though you don't have to have a bad day first to eat dessert. But it's not every day that I make dessert for my family.
Then, have you ever thought about making a dessert from two ingredients? So this time I will share with you a dessert recipe with only two ingredients that don't need extra work to make it. We only need milk and "agar-agar" or jelly powder.
- 1 Liter of Sweetened or Unsweetened Fresh Milk.
But here I'm only using 500 ml of milk because I'm out of stock. So you can use 1 liter of milk if you want to make more milk pudding portions. This amount of milk will not affect the texture of the pudding later, as long as the correct amount of "agar-agar" powder is used.
- 1 sachet of "agar-agar" powder, about 7 grams.
Important Notes for Pudding Mold
What makes this recipe practical is the use of fresh milk in a box. The box is then made into a pudding mold.
The use of a milk box as a pudding mold has advantages that are worth considering compared to using a pudding mold in general.
Using a milk box as a mold will make the pudding easier to remove so that the pudding will still be in good shape. Unlike the use of pudding molds in general, which requires extra care to remove the pudding to keep it in good shape.
The pudding in the milk box looks non-sticky on the sides of the box. So using the milk box as a pudding mold is highly recommended in this recipe.
- Step 1
Prepare fresh milk in box packaging. Put the milk in the cooking pot, then prepare the milk box into a mold.
To make a mold from a milk box, we only need to cut the top of the milk box after opening the folds there.
- Step 2
Add the powder "agar-agar" powder to the milk, then cook until it boils.
Continue to stir the milk throughout the cooking process, and use medium heat instead of high heat.
- Step 3
Remove the pudding, then stir so that the hot steam is reduced. Then transfer the pudding to the milk box mold that has been previously prepared.
Let it cool in a box mold before putting it in the refrigerator. Then store in the refrigerator at least 3 hours before serving.
Pudding Removing Process
After at least 3 hours, remove the pudding from the milk box. Quite easy, because the milk box is flexible. We just need to loosen up the sides of the milk box by pulling out the tops of the box.
Remove the pudding slowly and with gentle, patient movements to keep the milk pudding in shape. The texture of the milk pudding is very soft so it will break or crack easily.
Cut the pudding into strips, following the shape of the box itself.
At first glance it looks like a cheese shape, right?
Then serve it with a sweetener of your choice. Here I am using chocolate-sweetened condensed milk. You can add maple syrup or honey.
