So how to make the best white chocolate pudding:

• Chocolate is the star of the show. So the quality of the chocolate does matter! Use good quality white chocolate.

• Since we are using white chocolate that in itself makes the pudding really sweet. So there is no need for sugar.

• Chop the chocolate roughly into bite-sized pieces. This helps the chocolate to melt easily when you pour hot cream on it.

• Place the chopped chocolate in the bowl in which you are going to double boil. One bowl less cleaning!

• Even though the salt is only a pinch, it helps to cut the sweetness of the white chocolate. So don’t leave the salt out.

• When the cream starts to boil, like when tiny bubbles start to form, pour the cream immediately on the chocolate and let it sit for 5 minutes.

• Meanwhile, separate the eggs. Add lemon juice to the yolk and whisk until combined. Keep aside.

• Once almost all the chocolate is melted place the chocolate bowl on the double boiler and stir until all the chocolate is melted.

• Then add the egg yolks and keep stirring continuously until well combined. This prevents the eggs from scrambling.

• Make sure the egg yolks are at room temperature. Or they would harden the chocolate when you add the yolks to the custard.

• When the yolks are completely mixed, stir for a couple more minutes to help cook the yolks.

• Add in the butter and stir until combined. This gives a glossy finish to the chocolate pudding.

• To prevent the skin from forming on the pudding, keep the pudding aside till it cools a bit. Then stir vigorously before pouring the pudding into ramekins.

• Cover each ramekin with cling film and chill for at least 4 hours or until the pudding is not blobby when you shake it.

• Garnish with white chocolate shavings and enjoy!

DIY double boiler for the chocolate pudding:

For the chocolate pudding recipe, I use a makeshift double boiler.

For that, all you need is a saucepan and a bowl. The saucepan will be the bottom of the boiler. Fill a quarter of the saucepan with water and heat the water gently to form steam. Meanwhile, fill the top bowl with the chocolate cream mixture. The top bowl should be such that it sits on the rim of the bottom bowl and does not touch the water below until the process is complete. The pudding will be cooked by the steam created between the pan and the bowl. So there is no need to order a double boiler right this instant!

How to prevent a skin forming on the pudding?

There are quite a few ways to avoid the ugly skin on top of the pudding.

First, I tried straining the pudding but since the chocolate gets thicker when the pudding starts to cool, this process wasn’t working well for chocolate puddings.

Next, I tried covering the pudding cups with cling film, so that it touches the top of the pudding before chilling it. This worked but the chocolate pudding didn’t look appetising enough especially when I had to serve the pudding right from the cup.

At last, I landed on following the simplest way. All I did when the pudding was ready, let it cool for a bit, like around 10 minutes. Then vigorously stirred the pudding again and poured them into ramekins. Then coverd with plastic wrap and patiently waited for it to set.
