Chocolate Pudding

My pre board examination just ended and I have a small break in which to indulge myself in before school resumes. And indulging in chocolate pudding is what I’ll do. So ditch the artificial pudding mix and get ready to learn to make homemade smooth and creamy chocolate pudding with me to delight your senses.

Happy Baking.


  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 113g dark chocolate bar cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, salt and milk and transfer the stovetop at medium-low heat. Whisk all the ingredients together. It is better if you prepare all the ingredients before beginning, because once the pudding boils, we need to act quickly.

  • Keep whisking constantly. Do not increase the heat, the pudding must gradually reach boiling point or else it wouldn’t have the desired consistency. It may take several minutes. Once it boils, whisk for 60 seconds, set a timer if necessary, and remove from heat.

  • Immediately add the chocolate, butter and vanilla extract and whisk constantly until they melt. Then, whisk frequently for 15 minutes. Pour the mixture into a bowl. To eliminate all lumps, pour through a mesh sieve. To avoid foaming on the skin, cover with a clear plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Pour into bowls and enjoy!

  1. My mom used to make home made pudding way back when and it always tasted so wonderful. I’ve never actually made pudding but you’ve made it look soooo good I think I might just go for it!

  2. Luscious. Worthy use of your break. You included video too – quite a post! You’re so right, making your own produces results superior to what you’d find in a box. Coincidentally, I made my own pudding for my own post today. What are the odds?

    1. I’m glad you liked the pudding. I wanted to make something simple, but very chocolatey and the pudding fit the bill! I’m afraid that my finals have shifted from February to March and will end on March 30. So this break and some sundays is when I’ll be able to update the blog. And those cupcakes look delectable. Filling them with custard was a great idea.

      1. Thanks so much! You’re smart to give your studies priority, and March will be here soon enough, but I look forward to you getting a break or two before then. By the way, filling the cupcakes with custard is inspired, though the baker who invented the original cake gets credit. The local paper had an article about him, and apparently he got the idea all the back in the 70s, when he was at a pastry convention (Really? Such things exist?) in California.
