Chocolate Pudding.

Would you like to make your own chocolate pudding instead of relying on a mix that you buy at the store? Here is an old fashioned recipe for home made chocolate pudding.
  • 1 egg.
  • 2 tbsps. cornstarch.
  • 3 tbsps. sugar.
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla.
  • 1 pint milk.
  • 1 tbsp. boiling water.
  • 1/2 tsp. salt.
  • 1 oz. shaved chocolate.
I admit it - this graphic has basically nothing to do with chocolate pudding but isn't it beautiful? Perhaps his is eating the chocolate pudding.

Reserve 1/2 cup milk, put the remainder on the low heat in a double boiler. Mix the cold milk with the cornstarch and salt. Beat the egg well and add to the cornstarch mixture. Stir this into the boiling milk and stir well. Put the chocolate, sugar and boiling water into a small frying pan or saucepan, and set over a medium heat. Stir until the mixture is smooth and glossy; beat this into the pudding and cook for 2 minutes longer. Take from the stove and add the vanilla. Dip a mould into cold water and turn the pudding into it. Set away to cool. When cold and stiff, turn out on a flat dish and surround with whipped cream; or serve with cream and sugar or a soft custard.
