Chocolate Fridays - Chocolate Pudding



I've never understood the need for instant pudding mix.

Neither has Fanny Farmer evidently. Although most people won't find a recipe for Chocolate Pudding in her cookbooks. But fear not - its under Blancmange. A fancy name for Pudding and still pretty easy. Whenever I want dessert and I have none this is the one I go to. I even use it for my Chocolate Icebox Cake recipe. It totally brings me back to my childhood when my mom would put chocolate pudding in fancy ice cream dishes that were waiting for us when we got home. The perfect way to end the week.

Chocolate Blancmange (fancy name for pudding) (From Fanny Farmer's Cookbook)
3 tbsp cornstarch
4 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 oz unsweeted chocolate (I've used bittersweet as well and it works)

Mix the cornstarch with the sugar and sal and 1/4 of the milk. Heat the remaining milk, then slowly add it to the cornstarch mixture. stirring constantly.  Cook until thickened. stirring constantly, in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the chocolate.  Continue to cook for about 15 minutes so that raw taste of the cornstarch disappears. Let cool then add the vanilla. Cover and chill.
