Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

I decided to make this as it was a little different. The idea of making a”pudding” with polenta sounded interesting to say the least but sounded like it might be good. You can read the recipe here.

Sadly, this didn’t turn out. At least the budino didn’t. At the end, when it’s supposed to be somewhat thick, it was a soupy mess. I’m not sure why. I’ve read and re-read the recipe and as far as I can tell, I did everything correctly. It was reasonably thick after cooking it but for whatever reason adding the butter, cream, and egg yolk loosened it up and it didn’t re-thicken. Even after having it in the fridge overnight didn’t do anything to thicken it.

Now, it tasted good (very sweet) but it really wasn’t a pudding to eat with the ice cream and plums. Speaking of the plums, those worked out pretty well. Those I will save and will just put on ice cream.
