Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
- 3 1/2 cups (825 ml) milk
- 3/8 cup (75 g) sugar
- 2 ounces (50 g) savoiardi (light airy cookies, substitute ladyfingers if need be)
- 2 ounces (50 g) bitter chocolate
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup (50 g) sugar
Heat 2 tablespoons of water in a small pan, dissolve the quarter cup of sugar in it, and use the resulting syrup to coat the inside of a smooth-sided mold. Pour the pudding into the mold and heat it over a double boiler for 40 minutes.
Let the chocolate pudding cool. To unmold it, cover it with a serving dish and flip the pudding and the dish while holding them pressed together. Wipe the mold with a cloth dipped in hot water and lift the mold free.
Yield: 4-6 servings chocolate pudding.
