Homemade Chocolate Pudding

This is a super good dessert for a cold day. Just make it and serve warm. Add a little whipped cream for an even richer treat.

My chocolate pudding recipe uses flour for thickening instead of cornstarch. Its better. It gives you that thickness you want but it imparts a deep, rich flavor that cornstarch just can’t give.

Here is what you need:

1/4 c flour
6 Tablespoons sugar
2 1/3 cups whole milk
dash of salt
4 Tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon good vanilla extract

Place all dry ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Gradually add the milk and butter, blending thoroughly all the while.
Set over a low flame and stir until the pudding thickens and starts to bubble when you stop stirring for a moment.
Turn off heat. Cool slightly, blend in vanilla.

The above recipe makes about 4 servings.

Resist using higher heat for this. It scorches quickly.

I use a immersion or stick blender on low to blend the ingredients while adding the liquid.
