Vanilla Pudding Cake with Berries and Cream

By Stephanie

My husband likes to order Crème Brule when we go out. But it HAS to be with berries.  I think he likes that creamy and sweet with the tart of berries.  So I made something similar for fathers day.  I have to say..it was super yummy!! 

Sorry the pic is a bit messy, I didn’t think about taking a pic until AFTER I had taken a bite. 


Vanilla Pudding Cake

Serves 6-8

5 Tbsp softened butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

5 egg yolks

5 Tbsp flour

1 Tbsp vanilla

2 cups milk

6 egg whites at room temp

pinch cream of tarter

In clean VERY clean bowl whip egg whites with cream of tarter to stiff peaks.  Set aside.  take 1 Tbsp butter and grease 6 ramekins or bowls or a 9X9 pan.  In large mixing bowl, mix butter, salt and  sugar with wooden spoon.  Beat in yolks, flour and vanilla.  Slowly add in milk and stir until combined.  Slowly add in 1/3 of egg whites and fold to combine.  Add in another 1/3 and repeat until egg whites are all in.  There can be a few lumps of whites, but mostly incorporated.  Carefully ladle batter into pan or ramekins.  Put pan or ramekins into roasting pan and fill with hot water 1/2 way up side of pan.  Put into 325 degree oven for about 35-40 minutes until sides are set but middle is a bit wiggly still.  Take out and leave in water bath for 10 minutes.  Then remove and let cool.  Can be served warm, room temp or chilled.  (I prefer warm). 

Berry Topping

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

2 cups raspberries

2 cups strawberries (sliced)

Put sugar, water, and 1 cup of each berry into small sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.  Simmer 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally.  Put in other berries and stir to combine, but be careful not to break up berries.  Serve immediately or refrigerate to use later.  (GREAT on waffles!!)

Cream Topping

Makes about 22cups

1 cup whipping cream whipped

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

1 cup sour cream

1 tsp vanilla

Combine in small bowl.  Keep in fridge.  My FAVORITE thing on pies, berries, just about anything.
