Stirring this pudding with a wooden spoon last night brought back memories of cooking dinner at our electric stove. I grew up on the farm where my Mom had my three siblings and I cook dinner once a week. This pudding brightened up the end of many of my meals, and I hope it adds to your meal as well!
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup cornstarch
4 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Place the sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch in a medium-sized pot and mix until blended. Add the eggs, stir, and then add the milk.
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil (about 10-15 minutes). Boil one minute, take off the heat, and then add the vanilla. Place in dishes to serve. Makes 6-8 servings depending on how big they are.
Chill and then serve.
