Mm – I am an expert of desserts. We had one going fabulously wrong last time we cooked here, a wine-egg-cream … That is what counts as expert these days, non?
My sister came up with this little gem, mixed and quick, nothing for a formal dinner, but good enough for an average dessert:
serves 2 or 3
250 g quark/curd/junket (whatever you call it, we use the 20 % variety, there is a more fat-containing variety) – about 0,60 €
one tin/can of mandarine slices with sugary water – 0,85 €
one cup of vanilla cream pudding – 200 g – 0,89 €
That is all folks, you open the tin/can, you throw it all together in one big bowl, you stir till it a homogenous mass (not mess …)
And it costs 2,34 € – 2,83 $
The unsweetened quark takes some of the sweetness from the ready made vanilla cream pudding and the sugar water from the mandarine, so it is sweet, but less sweet than the mandarines or the pudding alone. And the mandarine have a nice slightly sour zing. So it is fruity and sweet and creamy – what is not to like?
You do not have to cook, you do not have to cut anything – ideal for Phenny’s „mom“* who is slightly under-skilled in the kitchen department. And I am no Bocuse myself as you can see from my confession at the start of this post.
