A couple of days back I was going through my newsfeed and came across the blog ‘UrduMom’. The word ‘Urdu’ in the title caught my interest and I immediately started reading her posts on recipes, travels, parenting & more. I messaged her on her Facebook page admiring her writing and how she is sharing her experiences of teaching Urdu to her children so it benefits Pakistani expats around the world. Turns out the person behind the site is Tamania, who blogs about her Pakistani-Canadian family at urdumom.com sharing the journey of raising bilingual children, teaching them Urdu in fun ways and their multicultural life in Canada.
We connected instantly; turns out she she was also following my blog and she even tried my coconut pineapple dessert fiesta recipe for a brunch she hosted for her friends. Discussing our mutual interest in food blogging, I suggested we do a collaboration on our blogs where we both do guest posts for each other. I share a recipe on her blog and she shares a recipe on mine. I asked her what she wanted me to share and her answer was a resounding Desserts. ‘Something that is simple to make, can be made in advance and looks stunning’
I thought about what to share and then finally decided on a layered dessert that I have titled Oreo Vanilla Pudding with Salted Caramel. It’s a layer of Oreo biscuits, topped with vanilla pudding, salted caramel & sliced nuts. The vanilla pudding is made from scratch (as expected) but it really is simple to make; just put everything in a saucepan and cook. However, you could potentially use an instant pudding mix or custard.
