For all the sweet tooth and chocoholics, we offer a recipe for chocolate pudding with a delicate creamy structure and a great refined taste. Dessert can be served for a small family celebration or for Sunday breakfast. The dish can be served in portions or made in the form of a cake.
For pudding, you need simple products. When choosing milk, give preference to a product with a fat content of 3.2% or choose low-fat cream. For the recipe, it is better to use homemade or farm eggs. For a rich chocolate taste, alkalized cocoa is ideal, and for flavor, you can add vanilla extract, Nutella chocolate paste or dark quality chocolate to the dessert.
If it is planned to be served for an adult audience, it is allowed to flavor the dessert with a tablespoon of high-quality cognac, rum or coffee liqueur. All foods must be at room temperature before cooking.
