Microwave Chocolate Pudding


I had zeroed down on a garlic rice recipe and a simple potato stew, as the last two recipes under the 5 ingredients or less category. Now, what should have been a post for garlic rice, is replaced with another decadent recipe!

Why? Because I tried doing things I shouldn’t have, and messed up our camera’s memory card. I have assigned (read as : bugged and threatened) Harry to fix it for me, so can’t post the garlic rice photo nor take a new one till the issue is fixed. So, here is a recipe from the draft.

I had made this a couple of months back and it was extremely delicious. Microwave makes it even simpler to make, making it all the more dangerous!

Honestly, I don’t need more calories, but I am like an ant when it comes to sweets. There is an undeniable and inevitable pull towards anything sweet. I don’t seem to have any control over it!


Makes 4 servings


  • Sugar                         :  1/2 cup
  • Cocoa powder       :  1/3 cup
  • Corn Flour              : 3 tbsp
  • Milk                           : 2 cups
  • Vanilla Essence    : 1 tsp
  • Chocolate strands, few silver balls : for decoration


  1. Combine the sugar, cocoa and corn flour in a microwave safe bowl. Add the milk, a little at a time, and whisking so that there aren’t any lumps.
  2. Cook on high in the microwave for 3 minutes. Stir, then cook again for 2-5 minutes – keep stirring in between at one minute intervals. The pudding is done when its shiny and thick.
  3. Add the vanilla essence or extract and a tbsp of butter (optional, I didn’t add) and refrigerate once it’s cooled down. Serve cold. Decorate with chocolate strands and silver balls.

Before my brother accuses me of stealing his idea, let me tell you that the description for sweet tooth (ant attracted towards sweets) came from him.
