This is identical to the Denver Chocolate Pudding on page 365 of the eleventh edition of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, except FF says to cook it for 40 minutes, not 45.<br/><br/>That said, Denver pudding is one of the greatest desserts ever devised. It was my father's favorite to make, and our favorite to eat!
