This would be great hot with chocolate cake, poured over banana (if you want to keep on my 7 a day routine), on it's own or allowed to cool in small pots and eaten cold like blancmange. It's pretty low sugar too with only 1 tsp added sugar per portion. There's more sugar in a fromage frais!
Chocolate custard - Makes 2 small bowls
280ml, Half Pint milk
1 rounded tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)
1 tsp Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tsp Sugar
Mix the cornflour with the cocoa powder and sugar with 1 tbsp of the cold milk then add the vanilla. Heat the remaining milk in a microwave for 2 minutes or until hot. Gradually whisk the hot milk into the cornflour mix then return to the microwave for 2-3 minutes on full power or until cooked and thick. Keep an eye on it as it can boil up and boil over.
I would be honoured if you would consider nominating me in the Britmums BIB awards, especially the food category.
After all, who can resist delicious chocolate custard?
