Warm Chocolate and Amaretto Pudding

Budino al cioccolato e amaretto
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!


  • 500ml milk

  • 15g plain flour

  • 30g caster sugar

  • 1 vanilla pod, halved lengthways and seeds removed

  • 80ml Amaretto liqueur

  • 100g dark chocolate, finely chopped

  • 50g unsalted butter

  • 30g amaretti biscuits, crushed


  • 1.

    Put the milk in a saucepan and warm over a low heat.

  • 2.

    Combine the flour, sugar and vanilla seeds in a medium-sized saucepan, add a little of the milk and whisk to a smooth paste.

  • 3.

    Add the remainder of the milk and warm over a low heat, whisking all the while to prevent lumps from forming.

  • 4.

    Stir in the Amaretto liqueur and continue to whisk until the mixture has begun to thicken.

  • 5.

    Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and butter and stir to combine.

  • 6.
