Mama C = Mama Cypert = Garrett's grandma
This pudding is delish! AND...wait for it...is made in the microwave!
Seriously, y'all, I'm not just sucking up because it's the grandma in law, this stuff is the best chocolate pudding I have ever tasted! So good that it usually only lasts about 2, maybe 2 1/2, days here.
What you need:
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tbl. Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa
1/4 Tsp. Salt
2 1/2 Cups Milk
2 Egg Yolks, slightly beaten
1 Tsp. Vanilla
I Tbl. Butter
What to do:
In a large, microwave safe bowl add first 5 ingredients, mixed well, and cook 3 minutes.
After 3 minutes stir the mixture and then cook for 3 more minutes. Keep doing this until the mixture has thickened. I usually do 3 to 4 rounds.
Then add about 1 cup of the mixture SLOWLY to egg yolks, stirring the entire time. This is to temper the eggs so that they don't scramble when you add them to the hot mixture.
Pour the egg yolks and 1 cup mix back with the rest of the mixture and stir.
Return to microwave and cook until desired thickness. I like THICK pudding, Garrett likes it a little thinner. It's up to you!
* Bear with me, pudding isn't the most photogenic of things.
Now, I have a surprise for you.
You can also make a pie with this pudding! Just cook it a little longer in the microwave until it thickens up a little more and put it into a prepared pie shell! YUM!
