Cold Biscuit Pudding

Posted by Dana

If you watch Food Network channel very much I am sure have seen The Best Thing I Ever Ate show.

Well, if the Food Network people called me and asked me to be on the show, which I doubt they ever will, I would have to say that Cold Biscuit Pudding is the “best thing I ever ate!”

My mother-in-law was visiting with me one day and I had some leftover biscuits sitting on the counter.

She began to tell me about this wonderful concoction.

I had never heard of such but we mixed it up and then I tasted it!

Let me tell you, delicious doesn’t even begin to describe how this taste.

It is a mixture of fluffy homemade biscuits with just a hint of vanilla all mixed in with a buttery, chocolatey pudding goodness, and it is so easy to make.

As my brother-in-law Brock would say, “it’s gooder than cake!”  I often make extra biscuits just so I will have leftovers to make Cold Biscuit Pudding.

Okay, here it is, try not to founder yourself!

Cold Biscuit Pudding – The Best Thing I Ever Ate

INGREDIENTS

3-4 leftover homemade biscuits, {see biscuit recipe}

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 stick real sweet cream butter, cut into slices.  DO NOT USE MARGARINE

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Crumble biscuits in bottom of a 9X9 inch baking dish.

Put sugar, milk, vanilla, cocoa and butter into a medium saucepan, over medium low heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil.

Turn heat off and boil for 1 minute.

Pour chocolate mixture slowly and evenly over biscuits.

Put in the oven and bake until bubbly, usually about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven, let cool until you can stand it any longer and you have to dig in.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is you can alter it several different ways.

If you don’t want chocolate pudding just omit the cocoa and add another 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

You can also add chopped pecans, just sprinkle them on the top right before putting it in the oven.

If you really wanted to get fancy you could add a little bit of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg for a more spicy pudding.

Just get creative and see what you can come up with.

    Hey Dana & Jennifer,
    I grew up on what my mom called biscuits and chocolate gravy. Very similar to what you have here, except we crumble our biscuits up in our chocolate gravy that was made in an iron skillet. Whatever variation you are so right it is awesome. I have relatives that are always asking “when are you going to make me some biscuits and chocolate gravy”. It just really brings families together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
    God bless you both and Happy Cooking,

      How wonderful to hear of others who grew up on the delicious goodies as did I. I’m 55 years old and don’t ever remember life without chocolate gravy and biscuits, or my Ma’s cold biscuit pudding. The last one I had was 18-1/2 years ago when she made one for me just a few days before she passed away. I’ve looked for a good recipe that sounded like her simple one, and now I think I’ve got it. Have some biscuits left over from tonight’s fried country ham with milk gravy and biscuits. Just might have to try a cold biscuit pudding tomorrow or have chocolate gravy with those biscuits. Thanks for those pleasant reminders of growing up!

        Thanks so much Sharon. We appreciate the kind words. I do hope this taste like your Ma’s. But I have learned from experience no matter how hard I try I can’t make anything taste like my Grandmother’s even when I use her recipe! LOL
        Again thanks and God bless,
        Dana (SGC)
