The meaning of the traditional British dessert is literally white food, which is not quite true with this delicious chocolate twist. It’s often made with cream and plenty of sugar, but you will love this much healthier version.
Corn flour is used as the thickening agent in this dessert, which is made by grinding dried corn kernals into a fine powder. It’s gluten-free and contains a number of vitamins and minerals including: zinc, iron, fibre and vitamin A.
The main ingredient in this recipe is milk, either full cream or reduced fat. Full cream will give a creamier taste and texture and may improve satiety. Milk contains calcium to strengthen our bones and muscles and anti-oxidants to help fight environmental damage to our bodies. Milk has been shown to improve weight-loss particularly in women and regular consumption has been linked to a reduction in fat around our middle.
For best results, sift corn flour and cocao powder, separately, to remove lumps.
