Chocolate pudding is one of my childhood (and adult) favourites. Served with chocolate custard and I am purring like a kitten. The original recipe from Ditch the Wheat (great site, check it out!) almost brought out cheers of joy from our house…a quick low carb, chocolate pudding! It is a similar concept to the muffin in a mug recipe with ground flaxseed except this recipe has no flour. I had a play around with it adding other ingredients and every version was delicious. This is just so simple to make too that even the Chief Taster could whip up one. The taste is just like a pudding. You could serve it and no-one would guess that there is no flour it in! Just delicious!
The original recipe is lovely by itself but the beauty of it is that you can happily add to it and still get a delicious chocolate pudding. Although this is cooked in the microwave, apparently you can bake this in the oven. It takes about 18 min at 180C/350F (I have not tried this yet as wanted my pudding in minutes!). I served mine with chocolate custard and the childhood memories came flooding back!
