We started off this session with a theme which was: no oven! Yes, that's right, so far, we have been making dishes that mostly require using the oven and we realized that not many people own an oven so we need to change our cooking methods. So this time around, our recipes were "oven-free": Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti, Rosti and Chocolate Pudding.
Chocolate Pudding Fast
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
3 tablespoon cornstarch
3 cups regular milk
120 grams good quality milk or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
How to make this:
Stir the sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch together in a medium-size saucepan. Gradually stir in the milk. Heat, whisking constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to boil and thicken, about 10 minutes.
Add the chocolate. Turn off the stove. Gently whisk until the chocolate is completely melted.
Stir in the vanilla and salt. Pour into small custard cups. Serve warm or at room temperature.
