This is a cornstarch (cornflour) based chocolate pudding.
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (sometimes I use half almond extract and half vanilla extract)
- In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in margarine and vanilla. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.
Notes - This is a quick and easy dessert and a favourite of children. You may use a non-flavoured milk substitute. Always use the best cocoa you can buy! Use non-wheaten cornstarch/cornflour Enjoy! Can also omit the cocoa and make this plain vanilla - but I have no idea why anyone would want to do that :)
