Cocoa Pudding Recipe
Today I have a recipe that will make you forget about ready-made pudding mixes. It is really very simple, it consists of putting the ingredients in the pot and mixing them and cooking them, just like in ready-made mixes. I understand getting ready made of everything, but I don't understand buying instant pudding mix because of this. This is my surprise, not about the harms of prepared foods. The pleasure of eating what one has made at home, saying how well I did it, is so good that it seems pointless to me to buy and make the same thing at home when there is no time to do it.
I know it's hard for many to spend hours trying for something that can be eaten in 5 minutes, and to devote time to it. Working hours are very long, life is very tiring, traffic is very stressful. On top of that, you may not want to come home with that tiredness and deal with cooking. For this, you may be ordering your food from outside, you may be getting frozen meatballs, which I think is acceptable. But ready-made pudding mix and similar dessert mixes, ready-made meatballs, etc. seriously pointless. If you can't take 2-3 spices separately and put them in the ground meat, then the kitchen is not really for you, don't bother. According to my observations, these ready-made mixtures are used by housewives rather than working women, that is a completely different enigma for me.
As I said, this pudding recipe is just a combination of ingredients and mixing and cooking. The material ratios are completely adjusted to my taste. For this reason, I suggest you set the most suitable rates for yourself by trial and error. For example, sugar may be low, cocoa may be more, etc. Before taking the pudding from the stove, please taste it and adjust the amount of sugar. Yesterday I got a comment about hot chocolate that I thought was funny, so I've been dwelling on it this much. A friend of ours said that he made the hot chocolate, put it in a cup, took a picture of it and sent it, and he said it was bitter, he couldn't drink it. As far as I understand from this comment, he never tasted that hot chocolate until it went into the cup. You are not preparing a surprise for yourself, while you are cooking, you are doing something that will fill your stomach and cheer up your palate. Do your best, and to do that, check the taste of what you're doing often before it becomes final. For example, after whisking the cake batter, take a piece with the tip of a teaspoon and taste it. Then don't throw a mold cake aside just because it wasn't good. Most of those who say I don't like to cook do not like to cook because they live these things. Do not alienate yourself from the kitchen and cooking with simple mistakes.
How to Cook Good Food
If you upload recipes to a robot (yes, cooking robots are indeed out), it will do exactly what it says in the recipe, no more or less. But you are not a robot, unlike robots you have 5 senses to check if everything is ok around you. Let each one be active while cooking. When I say this, they get very angry with me, but unfortunately there is no more polite way to express it. Please don't take the recipe and put your brains aside, just keep thinking. The recipe only gives the skeleton of the dish, you are the one who will fill it. Taste it to see if it is just the way you want it, smell it to see if it smells like it should, is it cooked, etc., if the texture has reached the texture you want, look carefully if it looks like it should, listen if it starts to boil, does it burn, overflow etc. saying.
Enjoy the recipe...
