Eggless Chocolate Pudding made without 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 :)-

Some of my other chocolate-based desserts which you may find interesting are:

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 TRIFLE 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.

 

Perfect Party Dessert

This chocolate pudding is a perfect party dessert due to many reasons:

  • Gets ready in less than 15 minutes which leaves you with ample time for other preparations.
  • Requires very few ingredients and that too are normally there in every kitchen.
  • Has to be made ahead. You can easily make it the previous day and stack in the refrigerator.
  • Can be set in shot glasses or paper cups and thus can be directly served to the guests without botheration of scooping and serving individually.

How To Make Chocolate Pudding 

  • This chocolate pudding is basically a chocolate custard with the added flavour of chocolate. To make this dessert, milk is first heated along with some cream and sugar. The cream is added to make this dessert rich and creamier.
  • Simultaneously, cornflour and cocoa powder are dissolved in little milk which is at room temperature.  Always dissolve cornflour in milk at room temperature only otherwise lumps would be formed.
  • Then this slurry is added to hot milk and the mixture is cooked for a few minutes till it gets slightly thick.
  • At this stage, cooking chocolate is added to it and that's it.
  • So, cornflour and cooking chocolate help in setting this dessert.
  • Thereafter, you put the mix either in a big bowl or in individual serving glasses.
  •  Individual serving glass serving will set faster than that of in a big bowl. So, adjust the time accordingly. Once it is set, then you can decorate it with fruits or confetti or ice cream or whipped cream, as I have done here.

 

 

Step By Step Recipe of Chocolate Pudding

A. Make Chocolate Pudding

  • Reserve 1/4th cup milk and take the remaining milk, cream and sugar in a pan and heat it on low flame.
  • Do not boil it.
  • Stir it in between as we do not want any thin film to set on it.

Tip: You can take any cream here, dairy or non-dairy.

  • While the milk is getting heated, take cornflour and cocoa powder in a bowl and dissolve these two by adding the reserved 1/4th cup milk.
  • Add milk from one hand and keep on stirring from the other so that no lumps are formed.

Tip: Ensure that you use milk at room temperature for this purpose, else lumps will be formed.

  • When the sugar is dissolved in the milk 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.

Tip: 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.Eggless Chocolate Pudding

 

  • Now, add chopped chocolate and vanilla essence it. Cover it for a while. The chocolate will melt in a few minutes due to the heat of the mixture.

Tip: Do not leave it long else the pudding will start setting.

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 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.
