About Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate puddings are a type of pudding dessert that contains chocolate flavours. There are two types: a boiled then chilled dessert, which is texturally a custard set with starch and is popular in the United States, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Poland, and East and South East Asia, and a steamed/baked version, which is texturally
similar to cake and is popular in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, Germany, and New Zealand.

This chocolate pudding is second popular from my vanilla pudding and cornflakes pudding.

What is chocolate pudding?

A rich delicious chocolate pudding recipe which will make you go crazy. It is too good to resist. I personally love it warm, but you can serve it cold too. For baked chocolate pudding, check my chocolate custard pudding made in microwave and steamed chocolate pudding.

Thick pudding made using milk, sweetener, cocoa powder and any one thickener like all purpose flour, corn flour or custard powder. The pudding is then poured in serving glasses and allowed to set in fridge.

I would suggest you to add some nuts in this. It would be great if take some nut filled chocolates like dairy milk fruit and nut or something like that and use it. I decorated this with some cocoa and edible stars, you can do as you wish.

Different Ways of Making Chocolate Pudding

Pudding can be made different ways. Eggless chocolate pudding is made by using cornstarch, custard powder for thickening the pudding. But traditionally eggs is used to thicken the pudding. For healthy option, you can use almond flour or ragi flour to thicken chocolate pudding.

Cornstarch – while this is the easy and affordable option for making chocolate pudding. Cornstarch is easily sourceable and thickens beautifully. Using cornstarch helps thickening the pudding giving it a sheen.

Custard powder – custard powder provides slightly dense and thick consistency in pudding. it is better to use vanilla flavoured or unflavoured custard powder.

Plain Flour or Wheat Flour – even though I don’t recommend using flour to thicken pudding. It gives a slight floury taste to the pudding.

Eggs – this is the more traditional pudding thickener. Usually little cornstarch is mixed with egg yolk to thicken the pudding. a knob of butter is added in the end for gloss. I used this method to make my lemon curd.
