A childhood favourite that still delights!!

Makes 4 medium-sized individual ramekins.

This was a regular at my home when I was growing up...It is a simple, basic, fuss-free, uncomplicated, clean, comforting dessert....pretty much like childhood itself, I'd say!!



  1. 1

    Sprinkle the gelatine powder over the cold water and let it rest for five minutes.

  2. 2

    Mix cocoa, sugar and custard powder into a smooth paste with some of the milk in a saucepan.

  3. 3

    Add the rest of the milk to the paste, stirring well and bring the mixture in the saucepan to a boil.

    Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue stirring until the paste thickens and coats the back of a spoon.

  4. 4

    Add the vanilla extract.

  5. 5

    Add the gelatine, soaked in the cold water, to the hot mixture and stir well until the gelatine has been dissolved completely.

  6. 6

    Pour and divide the mixture equally between the ramekins ( I used fluted aluminium moulds).

  7. 7

    Refrigerate until set.

  8. 8

    When ready to serve, run a knife along the top edge of the set dessert. Then, dip the moulds for 5 seconds in hot water and overturn them onto a plate to unmould the dessert.
