Chocolate Pudding in a Mug

Total Time
Prep 2 mins

Adapted from, this is a simple recipe to satisfy chocolate cravings. I like to stir some sliced banana in, or try replacing the vanilla essence with mint, coconut, almond or orange essence.


  1. In a large mug, dissolve cornflour, sugar and cocoa in the milk.
  2. Microwave on high for 90 seconds or until mixture boils.
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so.

fast and delicious - used soymilk, so vegan, too! Thanks for a quick and decadent tasting treat idea that's really not even that decadent - it can even be light with light soymilk and artificial sweetener. Big YUM, thank you for sharing!

Love this yummy treat. Just right when you want a little something chocolate-y. I have made it several times now, and I actually like it better when I reduce the cocoa to one heaping tablespoon- seems a little bitter with 2. And I love to eat it piping hot!

This is so quick, easy and delicious it is even good enough to serve to unexpected guests. I double or triple it and cook it in a pyrex measuring cup. It takes longer but is still quick.
