If there were a jazzy recipe that gets the “most popular dessert award” award, it would be this quick-to-prepare, rich and creamy confection. When I have little time to prep a dessert, but want to really WOW my guests, I make this delicious pudding.

This delicate, rich dessert is based on a recipe my grandma often made. When I was a child it was my favorite dessert, but it was packed with eggs and heavy cream. Here’s a fail-safe vegan version that faithfully reproduces the taste of Grandma’s specialty. Served in tiny espresso cups, it provides an elegant ending to any fancy meal. Plus, you can make it the day before serving if you wish—always a bonus when entertaining.
