Tuesdays With Dorie - Chocolate Pudding

I have a bunch of really good reasons why I haven't been around much lately but I'll spare you the boring details. What I will tell you about is the chocolate pudding that Melissa from It's Melissa's Kitchen has chosen for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie.


First off, let me just say that although the recipe calls for a food processor, I don't have one and you don't need one to make this pudding. A whisk, a saucepan and a large bowl is pretty much all you need. What I love about this pudding is that it is so smooth and chocolatey.


There's not much else to say about it! If you've never tried homemade pudding before, you're missing out. You can find the recipe here, here or on page 383 of Baking from my Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

Pin It!

When it looks like that, very few words are necessary. I hope things settle down so you have more time in the blogosphere.

I like your presentation! And I agree, this pudding can be made like a "normal" pudding, without any food processors, only hand operated tools are necessary

It was pretty darn fantastic! My FP is too small, so I just went with the whisk as well. Great looking pudding (and I love the blue cups!) Welcome back!

Now THAT'S what chocolate pudding should look like! Not that suspicious greyish stuff in the supermarket aisle.
So you've been busy too eh? I'm sure you wouldn't bore us with the details. Isn't sumer FLYING by?
Hope you're busy making jam for my jam swap. :)

kimberleyblue said...

i'm sure that's better than any boxed pudding mix! looks fantastic, especially with those white chocolate shavings!

Susan from Food Blogga said...

I'm with you, I don't use a processor for pudding either. A whisk does the job perfectly. And your pudding looks perfect.

Heather B said...

I didn't use a food processor either! No need! yum! It looks delicious! Great job!

Beautiful presentation. And it's good to know the pudding can be made just as good from scratch :)

good ol' chocolate pudding is hard to beat. i haven't made it from scratch, but i still remember my days of making the jello instant version. i was so proud. :)

Sharon said...

Love the chocolate curls on top! Yummy! I used my food processor for most of it, but I agree a good whisk and a sturdy pan is all that is really needed.

Teanna said...

I loooooooooooove the white chocolate shavings! They look so tasty!!!

Carol Peterman said...

I hope you were able to slow down long enough to enjoy your delicious looking pudding.

Ginny said...

I love the white chocolate curls on top. They look fabulous!

Dolores said...

I employed my Kitchen Aid since my food processor's too small. It's goog to know that next time (there WILL be a next time) I can go low tech and still get sensational results.

Hope whatever's got you distracted from your blog calms down soon; I miss your "voice".

Tartelette said...

Beautiful presentation! Nothing beats a good chocolate pudding!

Di said...

Nice job on the pudding. I'm definitely skipping the food processor next time.

Manggy said...

Yeah!!! Poot on the food processor owners!! Hahaha :) Lovely silky pudding, Lynne!

Mevrouw Cupcake said...

I hear you, lady...this summer is really getting the best of me blogging wise!

Ooooh, look at the chocolatey goodness!

Summer's taking me away from blogging, too, and keeping up with what everyone's posting.

Cookie baker Lynn said...
