Choc Chip pudding

This is a nice pudding which is served with an interesting custard topping. There's no butter, oil or eggs and the mixture relies on coconut and chocolate to provide some shortening. If you have any pudding leftover, simply reheat in the microwave.

  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 2 tab sugar
  • 1 tab custard powder
  • 3 tsp coffee essence (or 3 tsp instant coffee disolved in 1 tab boiling water)

Custard Method:

  1. Reserve 1/4 cup milk in a cup
  2. mix in sugar and custard powder until all lumps disappear
  3. heat rest of milk in a saucepan (or in the microwave for about 3 mins)
  4. at the boiling point, add custard powder and coffee and stir well

If you choose to cook the custard in the microwave, stop the cooking process every minute to give the custard a stir.
