Advantages: Simple pud, tastes gorgeous
Disadvantages: a bit bloating, but not enough to worry about
This is a favourite from my childhood, and I was very glad to fid that my children (and my husband!) love it too. We hadn't had any of it for ages and suddenly felt the urge several weeks ago, but having only remembered to buy some at last a week ago, we eventually managed to enjoy one again a couple of days ago!
I'm very relieved to find that it is just as delicious as ever (no 'new and improved' label thank goodness). It has to be one of the simplest packet puds to make, and a great kid-participation exercise too. A basin containing 300ml/half a pint of milk (semi-skimmed or whole, skimmed isn't recommended on the pack), scatter the packet's contents on the surface, and whisk for four or five minutes until it's good and frothy. Leave it to one side (doesn't need to be in the fridge) for a few minutes to settle, by which time it should be a firm mousse-like consistency and ready to eat.
I have to confess that we shared the pack between two of us - it says that it's enough for four servings, so I'm guessing that it should really be served into small dessert bowls rather than eaten straight from the mixing bowl with a couple of spoons! We used to make it go three ways when I was a kid as it was just my parents and me. It has a beautifully light texture and butterscotch taste, the flavour is still exactly as I remember, and there is no grease or nasty aftertaste. As we used the ordinary full sugar version, nutritionally speaking it's the carbohydrates that come out highest, calorie-wise if you split it four ways and use semi-skimmed milk though it's only 115kcal. The only allergy advice on the packet is for the milk content.
The only downside for me (and this will have been made worse by scoffing a double portion) is that the bubbles do tend to produce a bloating effect. However, it's worth it for the occasional treat :-))
