#9.5 – Decadent Chocolate Pudding

20141217_073212This is part two (of three) of the surprise that will come later in the week. The first part was my coconut banana bread I made earlier.

Any guesses yet on what I will make with banana bread and this chocolate pudding?

Because I’m saving the pudding for a surprise later on, the second part of the method is for those who would like to serve the pudding itself as dessert. And because I didn’t bake the pudding this time, it counts as 0.5 of a bake.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 oz good quality, finely chopped, bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Method (part 1) :

  1. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk together milk, cream, and eggs in a bowl. Pour this over the sugar, combine well.
  3. Stir in chopped chocolate
  4. Heat this mixture over medium-low heat. Whisk constantly, until pudding starts to thicken, and chocolate melted into the mixture.
  5. Whisk in the vanilla and salt

Method (part 2):

  1. Divide pudding between 4-6 small bowls, or 1 large bowl.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap, letting the plastic film sit right on the surface of the pudding – this prevents a skin from forming.
  3. Chill in fridge, until cold (up to 24 hours).
  4. If you want a firmer, baked chocolate pudding, divide the pudding into 4-6 small ovenproof ramekins. Set the ramekins in a pan filled with hot water. Bake at 350F, for 30 minutes.
  5. Allow pudding to cool in the water bath.
  6. Cover and chill.
