TWD- Chocolate Pudding

This week for the Tuesdays with Dorie Challenge, Melissa from Its Melissas Kitchen has picked… Chocolate pudding! You can find it on pg. 383 on Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.  Dorie was kind enough to post the recipe herself here, This was the perfect recipe to come home to.    Easy, lucious, almost a cure for jet lag.  

Thankfully I have a 12 cup food processor so I didn’t have any chocolate pudding disasters (reading through the comments of other TWD participants concerned me for a moment).

There was serious foam after the milk got added.  I used my favourite sauce making whisk bought at Ikea years ago.  It really helps prevent a scorched base.  I cooked it a really low temp for about 5 minutes until the whisk pattern remained on the top.

The texture of this is stunning.  The combination of melted dark chocolate and good cocoa was lovely.  There was just enough corn flour to stabilise and thicken but none to taste.

All in all a winner.  Now, I really must unpack…

A post script.

This was even better the next day.  The silkiness of the texture became more pronounced.

The boys loved it both days!

  1. I was a little afraid of the food processor too but I had no problem with my 11-cup.

  2. Looks good. I too have the 11 cup so I had no problem either.

  3. Looks great – and your little ones appear to agree!

  4. I had serious foam too and was scared I would ruin the whole batch by burning. I also have the bigger sized fp so while there was still a mess to clean up, it didn’t blow up or anything

    I’ve always wanted one of those whisks.. hopefully they’re still at IKEA.

  5. I don’t believe I have ever seen 2 such serious pudding eaters before!! Great pictures and I’m glad you enjoyed the pudding.

  6. Glad to hear I wasn’t alone with the crazy foam! I have a very small processor and even a half batch didn’t fit at that point. Glad to hear you had an easier time and that your boys enjoyed it so much! 🙂

  7. I love the photo of your boys digging in! Glad you all liked it!

  8. That photo of the boys just says it all about this pudding, doesn’t it? Great job!

  9. Well enjoyed by the little ones, pudding looks great!

  10. i really had no foaming, so interesting…!!! but it came out wonderful…i wanted to make it again last nite. cute tool btw…love specialty items for fun.

  11. awesome whisk! 🙂 glad it worked well for you, looks like it was a hit!

  12. I was a little worried mine was going over the top of the processor. Yum!

  13. welcome home. looks like your pudding was well-enjoyed! neat whisk, btw!

  14. What a great testimony to your pudding on the boys’ faces. I thought it tasted even better the next day also.

  15. I got lots of foam too! But it was fine once it thickened up. Cute picture! My boys loved the pudding too 🙂

  16. Love the picture of the kids. True pudding conniseurs, I’m sure.

  17. Your pudding looks so wonderful and I love the picture of your children getting down to business with the pudding. I only had big ramekins so next time I make this, smaller ones it will have to be. This pudding was very very chocolatey…just the way I like it. I look forward to your post next week.

  18. I agree that it was better the next day too! I don’t know what happened overnight, but the longer it sat in the fridge, the better it got!

  19. “the perfect recipe to come home to” and “a cure for jet lag” are great descriptions of this home-style recipe. Thanks for sharing your experience with it.
