I tried this simple and easy chocolate pudding. Taste very smooth, chocolaty and sweet. If you don't like sweet pudding, you can reduce the amount of sugar in this recipe. I found it too sweet for me so the next time I would reduce the sugar quantity. It is an easy recipe and fixed in a jiffy as it is using a microwave to cook. If you don't have a microwave, you can simply use the conventional method.. use your stove to heat up the pudding mixture :-).
Servings: serves 4
100 g white sugar
30 g unsweetened cocoa powder
25 g cornstarch
475 ml milk
10 ml vanilla extract
- In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa and cornstarch. Whisk in milk a little at a time so the mixture does not have any dry lumps.
- Place in the microwave, and cook for 3 minutes on high. Stir, then cook at 1 minute intervals, stirring between cooking times for 2 to 4 minutes, or until shiny and thick. Stir in vanilla.
- Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, and chill in the refrigerator. Serve cold.
I keep my pudding in small tubs ( see pictures above) and keep them in the refrigerator. The tubs have their own covers so I don't have to use any plastic wrap anymore.
