Chocolate Pudding

My mom frequently made pudding for desert when we were kids. She would spoon it into the Buffalo China bowls, or glass dessert dishes. The combination of the dishes and the pudding are imprinted in my memory.

Wanting a simple desert I could make from scratch, and also to create the same memory for my own children, I decided to give homemade pudding-making a try. There are all kinds of recipes for chocolate pudding on the internet. Liking to keep things very simple, I chose the chocolate pudding recipe from Hillbilly Housewife. It uses simple ingredients to achieve a delicious desert.

The kids absolutely love the pudding. I haven’t used another recipe yet, since this one has been a hit. I double the batch so we can have it for dessert more than once.

The pudding cooks up pretty quickly, and is edible as fast as it cools. One of the interesting aspects of making pudding is that it is reminiscent of soapmaking. The pudding, when ready, resembles the step in soapmaking when the soap comes to a trace. Yum.

  1. I forgot until now that my mom used to occasionally make pudding for us when we were kids. It was such a big deal because we so rarely ate sweets. Glad your kids liked the recipe. 🙂

  2. This recipe seems simple enough. And it should be gluten free from what I am learning. I don’t know if you know or not, but Brae’s doctor thinks he may have a gluten allergy. It’s hard finding and affording gluten free food so I’m pondering making most things on my own.

  3. Ugh, yeah, that’s hard. Probably the more you delve into it, too, you’ll find sites out there with oodles of recipes. You are right, that can get quite pricey. :\ If this is gluten free, you’re in good luck, ’cause it really is delicious!!!
