Here are some top tips that can help you make the perfect chocolate pudding without any hassle.
- How to avoid lumps?
If you want to prevent lumps from forming in the pudding, you need to combine the dry ingredients first. To do this, you must add the dry ingredients to a saucepan and mix them well. After that, be sure to keep stirring the ingredients while adding milk to them. In this way you will get a homogeneous mixture without lumps.
- Whole milk (recommended)
The main reason behind using whole milk is that it provides a perfectly thick texture to the pudding mix. If you are using skim or low-cream milk, the pudding mixture will also be thin.
- Experience everything you want!
It is not necessary to consume this recipe only in pudding form. You can experiment with this recipe, such as turning it into a cake by filling a hot pudding into a puff pastry shell. You can then store it in the refrigerator overnight and consume it in the morning. Also, you can add various toppings like cherries, walnuts, and whipped cream on top to make it even more delicious.
- Without gluten
If you are gluten intolerant, you can always look for gluten-free cocoa powder and flour to make this pudding. To do this, you can search online to find the best gluten-free products available on the market.
- Dairy free
For people who do not like to consume dairy products, you can switch from whole milk to almond milk or coconut milk. However, these alternatives can form a less thick pudding texture.
That’s all folks!
