Chocolate Pudding Recipe

(Low Calories and Low Fat Dessert Recipe)

Ingredients:  Serves 4

3 level tablespoons cocoa powder

1 oz (30 g) soft light brown sugar

3 level tablespoons cornflour

14 fl oz (400 ml) skimmed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dark chocolate curls for decoration

4 large strawberries, washed  and dried, for decoration



Mix the cocoa, sugar and cornflour in a heavy-based saucepan and , using a wire whisk, gradually blend in the milk.  Bring the mixture to the boil over a moderate heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.  Reduce the heat to low and continue stirring for about 3 minutes, until the cornflour is cooked and the mixture is thickened and smooth.  Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla extract and pour into 4 small individual dishes.  Cover with wetted greaseproof paper and when they are cool, put them, still covered, in the refrigerator to chill for about 3 hours.  Just before serving, decorate each pudding with chocolate curls and a strawberry.  You can use finely grated orange rind instead of, or in addition to, the vanilla extract.


To make chocolate curls:

Spread 2-3 squares of melted dark chocolate thinly on a clean marble slab or laminated plastic surface.  As soon as the chocolate is dry to the touch, push a knife blade against it to lift it in curls.


Note:  Luscious strawberries give these little pots of smooth dark chocolate a fresh finish in a luxury dessert that is surprisingly low in calories and simplicity itself to prepare.
