Butter-Rum Pudding

Cooking Light
To achieve just the right texture in this low-calorie dessert, we experimented with several different types of tofu. We found that extra-firm holds up best to processing while also providing a creamy consistency.
8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup spiced rum (such as Captain Morgan's) or white rum
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 (12.3-ounce) packages reduced-fat extra-firm tofu, drained
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and cook until mixture is reduced to 1 cup (about 15 minutes).

Place the tofu in a food processor or blender; process until smooth, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. With processor on, slowly pour the rum mixture and vanilla through food chute; process until well-blended. Spoon tofu mixture into a medium bowl. Cover and chill 4 hours.
