Just wanted to say thank you for posting this great recipe love love love it thanks again and have a great day
Have been sampling recipes for a purpose. I'm trying to steer my daughter, who just had her first baby, away from processed foods and toward ''real food" as I recall it from my childhood. Recipes must be fairly easy, use basic items, and taste good. This recipe is a keeper.
Yep...this is it! This is very much like the one grew up on! Thanks for providing a low fat version of a childhood memory. This is really good!
Easy and soooo yummy! Why on earth would I ever make the box kind ever again?
My daughter discovered this recipe the week she got her wisdom teeth pulled. It is so creamy and the espresso powder gives it just the right boost in flavor. DD added a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chpis, too. Very good!
HI Meryl What delicious pudding! I was looking for something for a chocolate fix that didn't involve baking in the oven. It's a 100+ degrees here today. This was light, creamy, decadent and chocolatety. Modified a little: 3 tbsp flour and 1 tbsp cornstarch; 1/4 cup Whey Low sugar replacement; no espresso (don't like); no salt. I reduced the cornstarch and substituted flour for some of it as I am trying to completely cut out corn derivatives from our diets. Also, we don' t like our pudding very firm. More a cross between pudding and sauce consistency. We served this with sliced banana, broken walnuts, Baily's Irish Cream and unsweetened flaked coconut. Yummmmmmm I can see this being very adaptable to a wide variety of variations: Orange peel, ginger, dried cherries, raspberries, etc. THis has no eggs, could easily be made with soy or almond milk, or fat free, to reduce calories even more. Anyway what a great way to enjoy decadent chocolate with minimum calories and no loss of all the comfort for chocolate dessert. Thank you very much Judy in WA
Easy and sooooooooooooooooooo good. I omitted the coffee and used whole milk. Dh gobbled it up so fast I could hardly believe it! A winner.
I made a half-batch using skim milk and it turned out great! I perfer it warm, rather than chilled.
I never knew how to make pudding without a box, but I prefer not using box food, so I was thrilled to try your recipe. It turned out delicious. Next time I think I will eliminate the instant coffee since the kids could taste it and didn't particularly care for that flavor. Definitely going to be making this regularly. Thanks!
This has become a regular item (and we don't repeat many recipes at all). I enjoy the ease with which this goes together. I sift all the dry ingredients into a sauce pan, add the milk, stir well then turn on the heat - one dirty pot and done. This recipe is also a great base from which to experiment. Try leaving out the coffee and adding orange zest and/or orange liqueur (my kids liked it even though the zest made it rather lumpy). another variation was to add cinnamon and a little cayenne pepper. Next I'm going to steep some fresh ginger in the milk for a few hours before I start.
