This is my Mom's recipe. She created it many years ago and it is still a favourite to this day. We eat it while it is still warm. This is the only way I will eat pudding now. My sons just go nuts for this! Custard powder may be in the British import section or in with the pudding mixes and such in the grocery store.
- Scald the milk.
- In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add the sugar, the cocoa and the custard powder.
- When milk is scalded, add one cup of it to the egg mixture SLOWLY.
- Then add the egg mixture back into the scalded milk SLOWLY.
- Cook until boiling.
- Stir constantly.
