Chocolate Pudding


I like instant pudding, but sometimes I want the real thing.  This recipe takes a little extra time, but it is definitely worth it.


3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

1/3 cup flour

1 cup sugar

3 egg yolks

1 cup water, divided

2/3 cup evaporated  milk

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together cocoa and flour and place in a double boiler.  Over medium heat, whisk in 1/2 cup water and blend long enough to make a smooth paste.  Add sugar, egg, 1/2 cup water, and milk.  Mix well and cook over low heat until mixture begins to thicken.  Beat in vanilla and butter until butter is melted and blended in.  Pour into dessert dishes and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.  Don’t forget to lick the pan!
