Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding

This is a very creamy,smooth and rich chocolate pudding.It can be made a day ahead of serving.But am sure that it wont last long in the fridge.I normally don`t lick the mixing bowl,but this one is an exception 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Granulated sugar – 1/3 cup
  • Corn starch – 2 tbsps
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 tbsps
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Milk – 2 cups (I used skim milk)
  • Large egg yolks – 2 ,lightly beaten
  • Semi sweet chocolate – 4 oz ,finely chopped
  • Unsalted Butter – 1 tbsp ,softened
  • Heavy cream – 1/3 cup (optional- for serving)
  • Confectioners sugar – 1 tbsp (optional- for serving)

Method:

  • Mix granulated sugar,cornstarch,cocoa powder and salt in a sauce pan.
  • Add milk and egg yolks.
  • Cook in medium heat,whisking continuously until it thickens.
  • Remove from heat.Add butter and chocolate to it and keep whisking until the chocolate melts.
  • Sieve the mixture through a fine meshed sieve onto a bowl placed in an ice water bath (a big bowl of ice and water,to stop the mixture from cooking and to cool).
  • Place a plastic wrap directly on the surface and cover the pudding.(the wrap should touch the surface of the pudding)
  • Refrigerate the pudding for about an hour before serving.
  • Before serving,whip cream and confectioners sugar in a bowl until soft peaks form and serve it with the pudding.

Note:

  • This pudding can be refridgerated for upto 2 days.
  • Always use a very good chocolate for the pudding.
  • You can also top the pudding with ready made whipped cream.
