Chocolate might not be the first flavor that comes to mind when considering Italian desserts. It’s more likely that the phrase “Italian dessert” will bring to mind the light Marsala-flavored custard, Zabaglione, over fresh fruit, or perhaps the espresso kick of tiramisu or the light fruit flavors of a granita. Chocolate tends to be more of an accent rather than a focal point in Italian desserts – a light dusting of bitter cocoa powder as a foil to sweet mascarpone cream or perhaps a drizzle of tempered dark chocolate on crunchy-crumbly hazelnut biscotti.

Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 oz (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces best quality bitter-sweet chocolate
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 and 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup neutral vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

How To Make At Home:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Put the cupcake liners in the greased pan, and preheat the pan, too.
  3. Combine the butter and cream in small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  4. Chop 5 ounces of the chocolate and put it in a medium bowl. Cut the remaining 3 ounces into 1/4 ounce chunks and reserve.
  5. When the cream mixture comes to a simmer, pour it over the 5 oz of chocolate and mix gently to incorporate the ingredients. Let cool.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, oil, cocoa powder and cornstarch until the sugar has dissolved.
  7. Pour the cooled ganache into the egg mixture and gently mix just until the batter is smooth. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter into each mold (about 3/4 of the way up the sides).
  8. Tuck a 1/4 ounce chunk of the reserved chocolate into the center of each cupcake.
  9. Bake until the edges are set and the center still looks a little moist, about 30 minutes.
  10. Cool the pan on a rack for 10 minutes and then unmold the budinos.
  11. Dust them with powdered sugar, and serve warm.
