Ingredients
  

  • 40 Marie Biscuits
  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk 397g
  • 3 cups fresh milk cold
  • 2 cups fresh cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup walnuts chopped
  • ¾ cup cashew nuts chopped
  • 2 tsp instant coffee powder optional

Instructions
 

  • Add water into a saucepan or pressure cooker about half way. Put the unopened sweetened condesnsed milk can in the water. Cover the pan or pressure cooker with a lid. If using the pressure cooker, don't use the whistle.
  • Boil the unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan or pressure cooker(without the whistle) for about 1½ - 2 hours.
  • Let the can cool down completely.
  • Apply the caramel on two of the biscuits, the underside.
  • Dip one into the chopped cashew nut and the other to the chopped walnuts.
  • The caramel will help the nuts to stick to it.
  • Sandwich both together.
  • Place it in the individual bowl or tray.
  • Repeat with the remaining biscuits.
  • Add milk, cream, vanilla extract, 3-4 tbsp of the remaining caramel and coffee powder (if using any) into a blender jug.
  • Process the mixture till it becomes frothy. Taste the mixture for sweetness. Can add some more caramel if you wish.
  • Pour the liquid over the sandwiched biscuits. Don't worry, the biscuits will try to float up.
  • Add any extra chopped nuts that may remain.
  • Cover the tray or bowls with cling film and put it in the fridge for about 4-6 hours. Best to make it overnight.
  • After about 2 hours or so, using a spoon, pour the milk from the sides onto the biscuits.
  • Serve biscuit pudding chilled.

Tips:

  • Buy one of those large plastic/glass tins or trays with a lid. Very useful for desserts. That way you don't need to use too much of cling film or wrap.
  • Make the caramelised condensed milk the previous day to save on time.
  • If you are making half the recipe, then the save the caramel. Put it in a container in the freezer till you need it next time. Don't forget to add about a tbsp or so of it in the cream milk mixture.
  • I have tried using other nuts but the taste is not the same. So try and get walnuts and cashew nuts.
