Chocolate pudding

  1. For the chocolate pudding filling, heat the milk in a saucepan on low until a light simmer begins to form on the edges of your saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile, place the sugar and eggs into a bowl and whisk until pale and combined.
  3. Sift the cornflour and cocoa powder into the eggs and whisk until well combined and smooth.
  4. Slowly add in 1/4 of the hot milk to the cocoa mixture and whisk to combine until smooth.
  5. Repeat with the milk in batches until it has all been added to the chocolate and whisk until fully combined.
  6. Pour the chocolate milk mixture to the heat and increase to medium, sprinkle in the 50 grams / 1.76 ounces roughly chopped chocolate and whisk as the pudding thickens to ensure it remains smooth and doesn’t burn to the bottom or sides of your saucepan.
  7. Once thickened enough to stick to the back of a spoon, pour into your pastry and jiggle in the pie dish to smooth out the top.
  8. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.
  9. For the topping, place the heavy cream and sugar into a bowl and whip until soft peaks form.
  10. Spoon on top of the pudding and shape to your preference.
  11. Sprinkle over a little cocoa powder or fine chocolate pieces.
  12. Slice and plate em up.
  13. Dig in and enjoy!
