Homemade English Chocolate Pudding

Recipe by Nif_H
READY IN: 35mins


  • 3
    cups milk
  • 34
    cup semisweet chocolate, chopped finely (you can use anything from generic chocolate chips to a high quality chocolate, you get what you pay )
  • 13
    cup sugar
  • 2
    tablespoons cornstarch
  • 34
    teaspoon salt
  • whipped cream, to garnish
  • chocolate shavings, to garnish


  • Scald milk in a saucepan over medium low heat (bring it almost to a boil in a thick bottomed saucepan, stirring constantly). Remove from heat, immediately add chocolate and stir until it has melted.
  • Whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a large bowl. I would get these ready in the bowl before I prepare the milk.
  • Add the warm chocolate milk mixture in a slow stream, whisking contents in the bowl constantly and then pour mixture back into pot.
  • Cook gently over medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon for 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens.
  • Divide pudding among six ramekins or small bowls, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours and up to 2 days. Serve puddings topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
