A simple, old-fashioned chocolate pudding, which can be served either warm or chilled and is very easy to prepare. The addition of amaretto liqueur gives it a bit of a kick but not too much. A perfect dessert to serve when you are in the mood for a little romance!
15g plain flour
30g caster sugar
1 vanilla pod, halved lengthways, seeds removed
80ml amaretto liqueur
100g dark chocolate, finely chopped
50g unsalted butter
30g amaretti biscuits, crushed
Put the milk in a saucepan and warm over a low heat.
Combine the flour, sugar and vanilla seeds in a medium-sized saucepan, add a little of the milk and whisk to a smooth paste.
Add the remainder of the milk and warm over a low heat, whisking all the while to prevent lumps from forming.
Stir in the amaretto liqueur and continue to whisk until the mixture has begun to thicken.
Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and butter and stir to combine.
Spoon the mixture into serving glasses and serve either warm or cold, topped with the crushed amaretti biscuits.
