Microwave Recipe 2 - Quick Chocolate Pudding.

I adapted the recipe from here - and I would recommend you have a look there, I went slightly berserk with the decoration and quite made a mess of it.  But a simple recipe to make.  I would prefer making it on the stove, since I had to be careful the contents did not spill over in the microwave, which had to be frequently paused and stirred.  I also in the process, took the dish out a little earlier than I should have.  But all in all, a tasty, simple, easy to make dish, especially if you have to satisfy a sweet tooth ( in this case, mine).

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup use unsweetened cocoa preferably
1 Tbsp butter   
1/2 cup brown/white sugar - I reduced this since I used drinking chocolate instead of cocoa
1 1/2 cups milk
Pinch of salt  - ( I omitted this since I used salted butter)
3 Tbsp cornflour
few drops vanilla extract  (optional )
nuts for garnishing (optional)

In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together sugar, salt, cocoa and cornstarch/cornflour
Add milk a little at a time and mix. Ensure no lumps remain
Place in the microwave, and cook for 2 minutes on high.
Keep stirring at 1 min intervals.
Till mixture is thick ( like custard ).  It will thicken further on cooling - may take 5-7 mins
Stir in essence and the butter and mix again.
Chill in the refrigerator and serve cold, garnish before serving.


  1. I notice how you never make these things when we're around.


    Looks yum.

  2. I completely agree with the Kru!!!

  3. Glad the sisters agree! I am using all that has been leftover after your visit!

  4. What do you mean leftover?! Leftover from what exactly? Please tell all your readers :P
