The Best Biscuit Pudding Ever !

My sister-in-laws vacation is coming to an end. She will be leaving for India next week. But she possibly couldn't leave before treating us to her Biscuit pudding.

Like my husband and brother-in-law, she too completed her education in a boarding school and it was there that she learnt this recipe. While the recipe is constant in spirit, over the years the boarders at her hostel have adapted the original one and made their own versions. I have tasted a few others over the last 8 years of our marriage and I must say that each one was delightful.

The basic ingredients of the pudding are butter, cocoa, sugar coffee and arrowroot biscuits. However, since Sheryl chose cocoa and marshmallows as the ingredients for this month's dessert challenge, I sneaked in some marshmallows in the recipe in the form of a citrusy marshmallow topping. You may skip the topping altogether if you wish. But if you want that extra ump factor ... whip it up. Its lovely !
