Cuban Diplomatic Pudding recipe - Receta de Pudin Diplomatico

courtesy of the Cocina Cubana Club founded by Pascual Perez & chef Sonia Martinez

1 lb bread, white or wheat
1 cup raisins
2 tsp dry white wine
4 eggs
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 pinch salt, optional
1 12 oz can fruit cocktail (or make your own mixed fruit cocktail)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups milk
2 tsp brandy or Kahlua
1 cup melted butter

Caramel to cover mold (*)


In a food processor, finely chop the bread and place in a large bowl. Mix with the other ingredients including the fruit cocktail with its syrup. Stir well to be sure to dissolve the sugar. Place the mixture in a caramel covered mold (*).

Cook in oven at 375 degrees F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry. Let cool before serving. Cut in small pieces.

(*) To line the mold with caramel:
1/2 cup sugar
a few drops (scant) water

Place mold on burner and dissolve sugar until it turns a nice light brown color. Rotate the mold to coat all sides and bottom with the caramel.

Serves 6.
