This chocolate pudding has a marvelous deep, rich flavor and ultra-smooth, creamy texture. Plus it's super-quick to make. You can serve it warm—for those who just can't wait to dig into its chocolaty goodness—or well chilled. It's also fabulous served with a thin layer of cream poured over the top or a spoonful of softly whipped cream—or, just a tall glass of cold milk.

Soft, creamy, and soothing, rice pudding is a dessert you never outgrow. Baked rice puddings tend to be firmer than the stove-top variety and have a more custard texture. A topping of cinnamon sugar is sprinkled over the pudding before it bakes, leaving a slightly crunchy crust. I like to use long-grain rice for the pudding, as it's less starchy than short or medium-grain rice, and the pudding isn't as heavy—just absolutely delicious!

Nothing says comfort more than this banana bread pudding. Created as a way to use up stale bread, this decadent dessert has it all―a creamy, warm, custardy texture filled with banana and raisins. Top with a dollop of freshly whipped cream to make a good thing even better.
