Non-Steamed and Non-Baked Rich Chocolate Custard Pudding

These rich and foolproof chocolate custard puddings take just 15 minutes to make Try giving them away to your loved ones on Valentine's Day or Christmas.

Ingredients

Egg yolk
3
Sugar
50 g
Cake flour or cornstarch
20 g
Cocoa powder
3 tablespoons
Dark chocolate
1/2-1 chocolate bar
Milk
500 ml

Steps

1. Add the egg yolks to a saucepan and combine them well with the sifted flour, sugar, and cocoa powder to form a paste.
2. Add the chocolate to a heat-resistant dish and submerge it with some (not all) of the milk. Then wrap the dish with cling film and heat it in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes.
3. When the chocolate has mostly melted, mix the chocolate into the mixture from Step 1 in stages well so that it doesn't go lumpy.
4. Then, place the saucepan over medium heat and pour in the rest of the milk. Carefully stir the mixture until it thickens, just as if you were making custard cream.
5. When the mixture is thick enough to leave light trails, pour the mixture into dishes or ramekins, place them in the refrigerator, and leave them to chill. They're ready.
6. If you like, try adding some amaretto, rum, or other liqueur for a deliciously sophisticated flavour.
7. When you take these puddings out of the fridge, try topping them with raspberry or other berry-based sauces, the flavours go together really well. You could use slightly sweet heavy cream as well.
