The Project: Budino di cioccolato (chocolate-caramel pudding)
Each Friday, we select a recipe from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen archives that's perfect for weekend cooking -- when you have a little more time on your hands. This week? It's budino di cioccolato (a chocolate-caramel pudding) on the menu at Pizzeria Ortica in Costa Mesa.
This recipe will only take you about 40 minutes. The hard part, though, will be waiting for the budino to set up in the fridge. That will take a few hours. (You can also leave it overnight, which makes this a nice make-ahead dessert if you are having company.)
If you try this or any other recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, we want to know about it so we can showcase it on the blog, and occasionally in print. Upload your photos of the finished dish here.
