The Best Dishes to Serve in Individual Portions

When we go out to eat or prepare a special meal at home, we sometimes like to push the boat out. This can come in many forms: a particularly fancy bottle of wine, or a lavish pudding. Individual portions are a popular way to serve food, especially when it comes to puddings. They offer us a bit of luxury without excess and shops that specialise in cookware, such as Stangers offer great ranges of products from a variety of top-notch brands that are perfect for catering to this trend. Take, for example, the Le Creuset mini casserole dish. A smaller version of a casserole dish, the product offers you a simple method with which to make individual portions, most of which can be cooked whilst entertaining your guests. The possibilities such cookware offers gives you an array of culinary delights. Let’s take a look at some of the best puddings to be

Chocolate Pudding

The chocolate pudding is a classic that has mass appeal and always goes down well at a party. There are plenty of interesting and delicious variations on the standard recipe, such as adding a dash of alcohol, orange peel for a zesty tang or even some spices such as cinnamon, but really all you need is some chocolate and an egg to make a satisfying and simple treat. There are lots of additional ingredients that you can add without spoiling the taste or ruining its consistency; just check online for all the different recipes on offer.


Cheesecake is a delicious pudding that’s often at its best when served in smaller portions. The rich combination of cream cheese and the biscuit base make it very tasty but very filling, and in many cases a standard slice is just too much. Offering them in individual portions is a great way to save on ingredients and avoid unnecessary waste. Individual cheesecakes usually look very neat and appealing to the eye, and they have the added benefit of being easy to make. You only need a good Yorkshire Pudding Tin to knock out twelve in one go too!

Mug Cake

A delightful twist on an already popular dish, mug cakes have the excellent benefit of only taking around five minutes to make. All you have to do is mix together the ingredients in a mug, stick it in the microwave and let it cook. When it’s done, you’ll be left with the perfectly sized individual portion of cake. There’s a certain charm to eating a cake out of a mug, too. There are plenty of variations on the recipe for you to choose from, just pick your favourites and get going.

We all love a good pudding to round off a meal, and serving them in individual portions means that you’ll get a tasty treat without leaving you too full or uncomfortable. Most of them are incredibly easy to make and look great from a presentation point of view, especially when served in some specialist cutlery, and they make a wonderful, lighter alternative to the more stodgy and rich puddings out there.
