Serradura aka Sawdust Pudding

Not all delicious things are complicated, this pudding/cake is one of the most simple desserts out there.

Not long ago, I stayed in Macau as my job required me to be stationed there for 2 months and before that, I researched for things to try when I was there and I found this dessert.

Serradura aka Sawdust pudding/cake consist of 4 easy ingredients. It is name sawdust pudding as the crumbs do resemble sawdust a little.

This dessert originates from Portugal and is introduced to Macau during the colony era when the Portuguese is there. It became one of the most iconic desserts in Macau.

Now even without going to Macau, you can make this at home :)

Sawdust pudding
Yields 3 servings

200ml (7 oz) Heavy cream
50g (1.76 oz) Marie biscuits
30g (1 oz) Sweeten condensed milk
5ml (1 tsp) Vanilla extract

1. Crush Marie biscuits finely
2. Whip whipping cream to soft peaks
3. Add vanilla extract and sweeten condensed milk
4. Continue whipping until stiff peaks.
5. Transfer the cream into a piping bag for easy assemble
6. Place a layer of biscuit into your mold
7. Pipe a layer of cream on top
8. Repeat until mold is filled
9. Refrigerate for 1- 2hours until firm
10. If using a cake mold, lightly heat the sides to de-mold

I. We crush cookies with a rolling pin, but we recommend using a food processor, finer crumbs make the dessert tastier
II. Try not to layer to much biscuits in between, or else it will not be as nice texture
III. You can test the flavour of the cream to decide whether it is sweet to you liking, and add more sweeten condensed milk

Hope you guys enjoy this weeks [How To's]
