Nothing in the House Dessert

Mmmmm, so I have not yet done my shopping for the month and I do not have anything in the cupboard that I can make an awesome dessert with….BUT I did have Bourbon  Creams, fresh cream, a vanilla pod and some strawberries. And now, according to Nicholas, “this is a very special pudding,  Mom”.


Serves: 6



12 Bourbon Creams (Cookies)

250ml Fresh Cream

Seeds of half a Vanilla Pod

Strawberries or berries of your choice


1. Break to Bourbon Creams in pieces and divide evenly between six glasses.

2. Add the seeds from  half a vanilla pod to the cream, in a saucepan, and bring to the boil.

3. As soon as the cream start bubbling, take off the heat and let stand for 30 minutes or until completely cool.

4. Spoon the vanilla infused cream over the broken Bourbon Creams.

5. Decorate with the strawberries and serve.


Tips: For a little bit more of a grown-up pudding, add a tablespoon of  “real” Bourbon to the cream just before pouring it over the cookies.


About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
