Chocolate Pudding for HOME

Hello everyone and welcome to my HOME!

This time of year when we're snowed in and can't get out much we tend to bake more. Or at least I do.

For my tea this week, I served a Chocolate Pudding and today I am sharing the recipe. There's nothing quite like home made! This recipe comes from an old Purity Cook Book.

Chocolate Pudding
Scald together:
2-1/2 cups milk
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
When chocolate is melted, beat smooth with a rotary beater.

In a saucepan, combine:
3 TBSP flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Gradually blend in hot milk mixture.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes longer.

Stir a little hot mixture into -
1 slightly beaten egg
Pour back into the remaining hot mixture and stir and cook 2 minutes longer.
Remove from heat and blend in
1 tsp vanilla

Yield- 5-6 servings.

I served the pudding with a dollop of whipped cream and some shaved chocolate on top. This recipe would also make a wonderful pie. Just pour the pudding into a baked pie crust and cover with whipped cream. Yum!

Thank you for visiting today and I hope the rest of your week is very pleasant.

Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.
Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let Thy beauty and Thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place. ~ Edgar A. Guest
