My Daughter got ahead of me the other day and made an old fashioned chocolate pudding laden with sugar, the same one my mother used to make for me when I was younger and the same one I made for my children for years until we became more conscious of our sugar intake.
When it came to consuming it - she had a couple of mouthfuls and then rested her spoon and stated that it was too sweet and she couldn't eat anymore. With that in mind I thought I would share my almost sugar free version of the pudding that we consume probably at least once a fortnight in our home. The pudding is my own recipe but I did keep the sauce from the historical pudding, which does contain sugar and cocoa, rather than cacao.
1 cup SR Flour
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup rice malt syrup
Mix all ingredients together using electric mixer.
Grease pudding bowl and pour in.
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 dessertspoons cocoa
1/2 cup sugar.
Mix all together in a heat proof jug and then poor over the back of a spoon over pudding.
Place in preheated oven at 180 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
Serve with cream or a dash of icecream (or if in our family - milk)
