Traditional Homemade Chocolate Pudding

It’s easy to get distracted by oodles of fancy pudding ideas and leave behind the ones that are mainstays. While creative recipes are exciting, having a go-to chocolate pudding option is a must in any family.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 3 cups of whole milk
  • ¾ cup of pure cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 ounces of 80 percent or higher dark chocolate (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

How to Make

Whisk sugar, salt, cornstarch, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat until mixture thickens and ingredients are fully integrated. Once it is thoroughly blended and bubbles from the heat, add chocolate, vanilla, and butter. Continue to whisk until these ingredients are fully melted.

For smooth pudding, strain into bowls to remove lumps. If you prefer the traditional texture, pour directly into bowls. This recipe can be served warm, or let it stand for 15 minutes and then refrigerate.

Pudding Tip: When whisking in a saucepan, do not increase heat above medium to speed up the process. This may result in burning and poor-tasting pudding.

Quick Classic Tapioca

Although many pudding lovers lean on chocolate or vanilla, tapioca is also one of the finest traditional puddings. This easy-to-make recipe offers hosts a quick dessert option worthy of praise.

Gather These Ingredients

  • 3 cups of whole milk
  • ½ cup of fast-cooking tapioca
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

How to Make

In a saucepan, whisk milk, tapioca, sugar, and salt. Then, bring it to a boil on medium heat. Whisk steadily for 5 minutes following the boiling point. Beat the eggs in a bowl and scoop 1 cup of the warm mixture and blend separately. Once thoroughly mixed, pour it into the saucepan and stir until pudding thickens. Remove the pan from heat and stir in vanilla. Serve warm or cold.
