Recipe For Chocolate Pudding

Head straight on to the recipe for Chocolate Pudding ♥

I had a desire to be bathed in this chocolate wonder when I first tasted it at Perdeberg. It is everything you want from a dessert and if you only make one thing from this blog this year, make this! You will thank me once you have the first taste of this chocolate pudding.

On Monday the 21st of December I woke up and put our linen into the washing machine before doing anything else. I was unsure where to hang it and decided not to risk the wind outside and used my clothes horse in the lounge. I worked at home until 9am and then went into the office on my way through to town. I was in the office for just under an hour, in the stores, and when I came back to my desk it was pouring down. Needless to say I was grateful that I had hung the laundry indoors as I needed to remake the bed before I could go to sleep that night, and I don’t like to use the tumble dryer if at all possible. I drove through to Canal Walk and parked as close to the door as possible. I had sandals on given that it was quite hot when I left home. I keep a spare rain jacket in the car so put that on and ran inside, trying not to get my feet too wet. It rained so much that our swimming pool was filled to the brim. For the next 35 days we did not have one drop of rain! The heat was relentless and the wind howled. My garden has suffered terribly as we are not allowed to water every day due to water restrictions. I have planted a water wise garden next to our garage doors that is doing fantastically well despite this. However, I also planted two different varieties of lavender for the lavender garden that have probably needed more water than they are getting. Since then, we have had one day of drizzle. I am practising my rain dance, which I needed not only for the rain, but to burn off the calories from my chocolate pudding 😉

  4. I’ve read two blogs in a row and both for pudding. Must be the time of year. It is most definitely not the time for rain though. We had two days of rain between Christmas and New year and haven’t had any since. My garden is desiccated. Now I am returning the house back to normal, soon it will be time to get into the garden. Normally at Easter but it is early this year and I know it will still be too hot. Send it down Hughie!

  13. Yes yes yes! This chocolate pudding looks to die for. Didn’t realize you guys were in a drought- crossing my fingers for you. We’re having a drought in California as well, but El Nino has helped us this winter a bit.

  14. Hi Tandy, your pudding looks delicious, love the color. Sorry to hear about the drought you are having, we have had a lot of snow in the mountains this year so that should help us out a little down here in the desert.

  16. Cannot say no to a dar chocolate pudding. I am never very good with desserts, because they seem to require following a recipe quite rigidly, but I will try these.

  17. It has been so hot here! We don’t like using the tumble dryer. Ours takes so long to do a load so in winter it’s always a bit of a dance around the rain. This pudding looks nice and dense! 😀

  21. I love how you used dark chocolate for this pudding ~ I have just the right chocolate too I think! Might be a fun project today, 7 degrees outside, too cold to leave! Excited for your lavender bed, I’m trying to do the same. A shame about the water situation, a huge problem for my California friends, but we have excess water here. Crazy, but true. More flooding issues than anything.

    1. I am sure if you could, you would send some of the excess water to California!
