Eggless Chocolate Pudding made without an oven is a quick and easy pudding recipe without using gelatin or agar or even condensed milk.

A perfect party dessert that is sure to get you loads of compliments.


Easy Pudding Recipe

Making this chocolate pudding is literally a child’s play and the results are unimaginably good. Apart from being easy to make, the best part about homemade puddings is that you can control the amount of sugar and make it as per your liking.

This is made without gelatin or agar. Instead, cornflour is used as the setting agent. I have kept it plain but you can add nuts in it. It tastes good as it is but you can serve it with vanilla ice cream or with whipped cream.

This easy pudding is ideal for special occasions or for day to day desserts also. Make it for kids parties or kitty parties or just like that.

Do try it out friends and if you know any chocolate lover, which I am sure would be many,  then do not forget to treat him with this pudding. They will thank you for it and you, in turn, will thank me :)-

Not fond of Chocolate?

Well, difficult to believe that but still if any of your guests or family member isn’t fond of chocolate then you can serve fruit-based desserts to them like Fruit Cream or  Pearl Millet Pudding (Bajra Pudding)

Gulab Jamun Pudding is another one of my favourite party dessert as it can be set in shot glasses a day before, Milk Pudding with Caramelized nuts, (Mehabalaya), is my personal favourite.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Can I make this pudding vegan?

Yes! To make it vegan, use almond milk or cashew milk or soy milk and skip the cream.


Q) Which milk to use, full cream or 

You can use full-fat milk or without fat. Basically, use whichever milk you use in your kitchen.


Q) I do not want to add cream. Can I make it without cream?

The cream gives a rich texture to the pudding. If you don’t want to add it then skip it and take 2.25 cups milk only.


Q) Can I skip dark chocolate?

Dark chocolate is again optional. If not using chocolate then increase the quantity of cocoa powder by 1 tablespoon.


Q) Which Chocolate to use?

I used Morde chocolate compound. You can use same or any other that is easily available in your area.


Q) How to replace white sugar?

Replace it with an equal quantity of brown sugar or any other sweetener of your choice.


Q) How To Replace Corn Flour in Chocolate Pudding?

Cornflour can easily be replaced by custard powder. Use the same quantity of custard powder instead of cornflour. Do you know why I am saying so? This is because cornflour and custard powder are one and the same thing.

Actually, custard powder is nothing but cornflour to which vanilla essence has been added. Next time, have a look at the ingredients on a pack of custard powder and it will be clear to you.

So, if you do not have cornflour then use an equivalent quantity of custard powder.

Using custard powder, you can make another easy but all-time favourite dessert, Caramel Custard


Q) I do not want to use whipped cream. What else can I serve it with?

No worries!. It tastes good as it is also. However, to make it more appealing, you can sprinkle some nuts or confetti and can serve it with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.


Q) What is the shelf life of this pudding? 

It remains good for up to 2 to 3 days easily.


Q) My chocolate pudding gets a thin layer while setting. How to avoid that?

This pudding gets a thin film when set. To avoid this you can cover the glass/bowl with cling film so that it touches the pudding.

Eggless Chocolate Pudding Recipe

A quick and easy dessert for chocolate lovers.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Chilling Time 1 hr
Course Dessert
Servings 2


My Cup measures 240 ml

    For the Pudding

    • 2 Cups Milk At Room Temperature
    • 1/4 Cup Cream Dairy or Non-Dairy (Optional)
    • 4 Tbsp Cornflour
    • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
    • 1/2 Cup Sugar
    • 1/4 Cup 50g Dark Chocolate
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
    • For Garnishing
    • 1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Whipping Cream
    • Silver Balls Optional
    • Chocolate Shavings/ Confetti


    For The Pudding

    • Take 1.75 cup milk, cream and sugar in a pan and heat it on low flame. Do not boil it. You can take any cream here, dairy or non-dairy. Stir it in between as we do not want any thin film to set on it.
    • While the milk is getting heated, take cornflour and cocoa powder in a bowl and dissolve these two by adding remaining milk. Add milk from one hand and keep on stirring from the other so that no lumps are formed. Ensure that you use milk at room temperature for this purpose, else lumps will be formed.
    • When the milk is heated, sugar is dissolved and bubbles are seen on the edges then slowly add the dissolved cocoa powder mix in it. Keep stirring.
    • Keep the heat to medium-low only as cocoa powder scalds very quickly. And keep on stirring.
    • After 2 to 3 minutes, as the pudding thickens up switch off the flame. You can check with the spoon test. On the back of the spoon, swipe your finger. If the impression remains and the mix is easily divided then it means it is done.
    • Now, add chopped chocolate and vanilla essence in it. Cover it for a while. The chocolate will melt in few minutes due to the heat of the mixture. Do not leave it for long else the pudding will start setting in the bowl only.
    • Mix everything and pour it in glasses or bowls or ramekins, in whatever you want to serve. Fill only up to 3/4th only, leaving space for whipped cream.
    • Place the filled containers in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours. During this time the pudding will be set and will be chilled also.
    • While the pudding is getting set in the refrigerator, you prepare the cream.

    For Topping

    • For this, take chilled cream in the chilled bowl and using chilled blades, whip the cream till soft peaks are formed. You can add vanilla essence to it but sugar is not required as whipping cream is already sweet.
    • When peaks are formed, fill it in the piping bag and make swirls over the pudding. You can keep the whipped cream in the refrigerator till the pudding sets fully.
    • Garnish with confetti or choco chips and serve with love.
