Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe

I love this recipe for homemade chocolate pudding. It’s easy and so fast to fix!

While everyone, everywhere is obsessed with pumpkin recipes at this time of year (and who can blame them?), little Indiana had a hankering for chocolate.

Be forewarned, however, that you cannot speed up the process. If you do not cook the pudding long enough, it will seem a little runny after it cools. We like this warm or cold–and it’s especially good with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.

This is my go-to source for many, many recipes.


  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Baking Cocoa
  • 1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 3/4 Cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch Salt


  1. In a saucepan, combine together the Sugar, Baking Cocoa, and the Flour.
  2. Add Water and Evaporated Milk and stir until smooth.
  3. Cook over Medium heat, stirring constantly so the bottom does not scorch.
  4. Cook until thick--you will see a difference. The original recipe says one minute, however, it usually takes somewhere between 3-5 minutes on our stove-top to reach the correct consistency.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Stir in Vanilla Extract and Salt.
  7. Cool to room temperature, stirring several times.
  8. Pour into bowls. Serve.
