Serves: 4

Prep time: 15 mins


60g caster sugar

5 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp cornflour

350g  milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

Whipped cream & strawberries for serving (optional)


Have four glass tumblers ready for the pudding.

Whisk together the sugar, the cocoa powder and cornflour together in a saucepan over a medium heat.

Pour in the milk. Combine it together well. To make this dish dairy-free, simply swap out the regular milk for almond milk.

Whisk constantly while cooking until it starts to bubble slightly. At this stage it should be quite thick but still pourable.

Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Give it another good mix.

Pour into the four tumblers and place in the fridge for 4 hours to set.

Garnish with the cream and strawberries before serving and enjoy!
