Budino della Nonna


100g of dark powdered chocolate

4 tablespoons of plain white flour

4-5 tablespoons of white sugar

One litre of milk


Mix the sugar, the chocolate and the flour in a large bowl.

Place in a saucepan on a low to medium heat and start adding the milk a little at a time mixing continuously with a wooden spoon.

When the mixture has thickened and starts to cling to the wooden spoon the pudding will be ready.

A hint from Zia Mirella  – don’t let the mixture boil.

Take the saucepan off the stove and continue mixing .

Place the mixture in a glass serving bowl and put in the fridge to cool for several hours .


Place the dish on a platter and surround with, mint, ginger, sweet biscuits or ‘Lingue di Gatto’ biscuits
