Chocolate Stout Pudding with Beer Whipped Cream

eHow Food Blog

Summer brings more than just backyard cookouts and ice cream. It’s about gatherings, get-togethers, food shared with people in your life, feeding a hungry crowd and enjoying a house filled with a bit more chaos than you’re used to.

Food plays a big role in summer. It’s the centerpiece of most of these get-togethers, it’s the glue that holds those gatherings together. You want it to be good, but you also need it to be quick. You have burgers to make and potato salad to assemble; dessert shouldn’t take all day.

This pudding takes about 15 minutes to put together, and it’s even better if you make it the night before. It’s the perfect way to feed a big crowd, portion it out in small cups, ready and waiting to serve when that crowd gets restless. Oh, and it has beer. That makes everyone happy.
