Festive Chocolate Cream Pudding - Microwave

14 mins (prep 5, cooking 9)
8 ingredients
6 servings
I made this for Christmas day lunch, experimenting with microwave recipes found in "Christmas Microwave Know-How". The recipes are designed for a 650/700 watt microwave, and mine is a little larger, so I adjusted cooking times accordingly, cooking for slightly shorter times than suggested. I was very pleased with how simple it was to turn out an attractive and delicious pudding! The original recipe called for 2 tsp of instant coffee powder, but my children don't care for coffee, so I subbed 2 tsp of cocoa powder instead, for a chocolate pudding. Next time, I will fold in some chopped chocolate, or chocolate chips, for a richer pudding. I might also substitute some of the milk for cream, maybe about 150 ml. A tblsp of rum might be nice too!
