Chocolate Biscuit Pudding


This chocolate biscuit pudding recipe was passed down to me by my mother and written by my maternal grandmother. Although we never met, I feel I know her through her handwritten recipes.

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 day-old biscuits, crumbled


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish.

  2. Mix sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Whisk milk, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add sugar mixture to milk mixture; stir until combined.

  3. Cover the bottom of the prepared baking dish with an even layer of crumbled biscuits. Pour custard mixture evenly over biscuits; press down onto the biscuits with the back of a large spoon to moisten them.

  4. Place the baking dish into a larger high-sided baking pan. Place dish on oven rack; add enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the dish. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until pudding is set.
