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!
