Buffet Chocolate Fluffy Dessert

Sunday, March 19, 2023
Back in the 1970s, this was a very popular chocolate dessert at many "All You Can Eat Buffet" restaurants and a favorite light fluffy bowl of chocolate heaven.

I remember one of our favorite places mom and dad took me in particular always ran out of this so we got there early to make sure we got a scoop of this heavenly fluffy dessert before it was gone.

After two or three tries of making this, my taste tasters said this was just how they remembered this dessert and was just like the popular Ponderosa Steakhouse back in those days.

The combination of chocolate pudding and real heavy whipped cream blended together into a fluffy chocolate pillowy dessert tasted almost like a mousse without all the fuss.

It took less than 25 minutes to make with just 3 ingredients and after one spoonful we went back in time to those good old day buffet lines for just a moment with these flavors and creamy delight.

This version is almost like a chocolate mousse-style dessert but easier to make and much quicker and still smooth and thick.

For these easy directions, you can skip through the rest of my fluff below and go straight to a printable recipe card below at the very bottom of this page.

Homemade Pistachio Bread

Sunday, March 12, 2023
If you were looking for Pistachio Bread using a cake mix with a pudding version, this isn't the right recipe.

Our recipe is totally made from scratch and worth the extra time it takes to make this delicious Pistachio Bread as it is the best I've ever eaten.

There is nothing bad about the doctored cake mix version for pistachio bread, however, this doesn't taste anything like that recipe.

My Italian Grandmother knew nothing about baking with a cake mix and only used extra virgin olive oil, ground pistachios fine, and regular simple pantry ingredients.

This texture in this bread has a wonderful delicate crumb and is loaded with pistachio flavor.

The bread can be left plain, dusted with powdered sugar, or even served with fresh fruits and whipped cream I personally love it just as it is.

Our recipe is printable at the very bottom of this page so just scroll down and hit the print button for no ad interference.
