Goat Milk Chocolate Pudding Recipe; – DIY

 

One of my favorite desserts!

Fresh goat milk adds an excellent creamy texture and favor to chocolate pudding.

A good amount of *dark chocolate (85% cocoa) and a good amount of cocoa powder create a dark rich flavor. Egg yolks and cornstarch thicken the pudding as it simmers, resulting in a wonderfully dense pudding that is as comforting served warm as it is refreshing served chilled.

Ingredients:

  • 2 2/3 cups of fresh goat  milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 tbs. butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
  • * Optional – 3.5 ounces dark chocolate (85% cocoa)

Directions

  • *Optional – Break the dark chocolate into pieces and place in a metal bowl or top section of a double boiler. Bring about a cup of water to a simmer in a small saucepan or the bottom section of a double boiler. Place the vessel holding the chocolate over the simmering water and turn off the heat. Allow the chocolate to melt gradually.
  • Meantime, in a medium saucepan combine sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch. Stir in goats milk.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for several more minutes. Remove from heat.
  • *Optional – At this point you can stir in the melted chocolate.
  • Gradually stir in about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten egg yolks (*Note: use a wire whisk and beat briskly or else lumps will form).
  • Return all of the egg mixture to the saucepan and beat briskly with a wire whisk and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat. Cook and stir for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in butter and vanilla. Pour pudding into dessert bowls or 4 individual serving cups.
  • Serve warm or chill until ready to serve.
