We make more and more things at home; I enjoy cooking, it is often cheaper and I also have better control over what goes into my digestive tract. Just about everything sweet we make ourselves, especially jams, biscuits and cakes. At times, after a meal, we have a yoghurt or a milk pudding; one of those types of dessert you can typically find in the refrigerated sections of supermarkets. It is one of those types of dessert we have typically bought.
Maria Biscuit Puddings are a popular dessert here in Spain and are one of the aforementioned puddings that we buy on a regular basis in the local shops. They are a milk pudding flavoured with “Maria” biscuits, something similar to a “Rich Tea” biscuit found in Great Britain. They are a nice size and in many ways an ideal quick dessert to finish off a meal.
As you will have seen from an earlier post we already make our own yoghurt, but had taken no steps to make copycat milk puddings, that is until a few weeks back…..
I went to one of the local shops, here in the village, only to find that they had withdrawn from sale the yoghurts and milk puddings they normally stock. This is obviously a loss of income for the owners, so I was interested to know what had motivated them to take that decision.
