Simple & Smooth Chocolate Custard Pudding in the Microwave

Simple & Smooth Chocolate Custard Pudding in the Microwave

This is a simple chocolate custard pudding that simply requires heating in the microwave and being set with gelatin. Even though this recipe doesn't use eggs or heavy cream, it still results in a smooth and rich dessert.

Ingredients: 5 ramekins

300 ml
Chocolate bar (milk chocolate)
1 bar (58 g)
Granulated sugar
10-12 g (as desired)
Gelatin powder
5 g
2 tablespoons


1. Soak the gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water.
2. Place the chopped up chocolate, sugar, and milk in a heat-resistant bowl (or a normal rice bowl) and melt it in the microwave, without wrapping or using a lid, for 4 minutes (500 W).
3. Take the bowl out of the microwave and if the chocolate still hasn't completely melted, put it back in for another few seconds.
4. When the chocolate has melted, mix it thoroughly with a whisk.
5. Add the gelatin from Step 1 into the bowl from Step 4 and mix it in firmly until it dissolves.
6. Strain the mixture through a strainer (or a tea strainer).
7. Once the mixture has cooled, pour it into the ramekins and leave them to chill and set in the refrigerator.
8. You can either eat the purin straight from the ramekins or take them out and eat them They will fall apart easily so please be careful if you choose to remove them from the ramekins.

Story Behind this Recipe

It's a lot of effort to use a saucepan or the oven so I decided to make these in the microwave and thicken them with gelatin.
