Best Chocolate Pudding Or Pie - Mom

Cuisine: German
Courses: Pies
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

3   Unsweetened chocolate - chopped up
2 1/2 cups 592mlCold milk
1 1/3 cups 263g / 9.3ozSugar
1/2 cup 31g / 1.1ozFlour
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
2 tablespoons 30mlButter
3   Egg yolks - well beaten
1 teaspoon 5mlVanilla

Recipe Instructions

Add chopped up chocolate to the milk in a double boiler and heat to melt. Beat until blended. Sift sugar, flour and salt together and add a small amount of the hot chocolate to it and stir. Now pour this mixture into the double boiler with the rest of the hot chocolate and stir.

Add 2 Tbs butter to this and cook with constant stirring for 10 minutes longer. Pour a small amount of this cooked mixture over the well beaten egg yolks while stirring vigorously to keep from cooking the eggs and immediately pour this back into double boiler and stir and cook until thick. Watch carefully. When starting to thicken, remove from heat and add the vanilla and stir. Cool in a baked pie shell for pie or in 6-8 Pyrex cups for pudding,

This method of pouring back and forth with stirring helps prevent lumps from forming.

MERINGUE: 3 egg whites beaten with 6 T. sugar if wanted on pie. I prefer it plain with maybe a little vanilla ice cream on the side. Very rich and yummy!

Serving Ideas : As pudding, serve with milk. As pie, with small ice cream.

NOTES : This is really a pie filling, but makes the absolutely BEST chocolate pudding imaginable when allowed to set up in 8 Pyrex custard cups.
