Some of you might have noticed recently I am dabbling with pudding. Well - to no avail.
This is my recipe:
- yolks - 1
- cocoa - 30ml
- sugar - 60ml
- butter - 10ml
- milk - 164ml
- starch - 14ml
And the pudding just won't thicken. Once I even tried with double the amount of corn starch.
I have no idea what is going on, 14ml of corn starch is approx. 8.4g. I am using such tiny measures, because I am still testing it and would not like to end up with a big batch of yuck!.
In addition my hotplates are retarded and even the lowest setting is way too strong and burns anything you attempt to cook on it, that is why I decided to stir the pudding with a mixer/electric beater to ensure it will be stirred so fast - it will not have a chance to burn.
I will be getting a new oven soon, but in the meantime I would appreciate any advice.
