Low Fat Chocolate Pudding (with Bisquick)


I found this recipe in a 1982 Bisquick flyer and I believe the recipe is much older than that.  It’s one of my favorite desserts, very rich and thick, yet acceptable for a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet.  My husband used to like it with sliced bananas and whipped topping.


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup of dry milk mixed with 3 cups of cold water
  • Optional:  1 tsp. chocolate flavoring

In a medium saucepan, stir together the sugar, Bisquick baking mix and cocoa.  Heat 1-1/2 cups of milk and whisk into dry mixture.  Whisk in the remaining cold milk, one-half cup at a time until smooth.  Cook over medium-high heat until thick, bring to a boil and continue cooking for one minute, stirring constantly.  Add the chocolate flavoring if desired.

Leave in the pan until room temperature and stir occasionally to prevent film from forming.

Pour into 6 individual serving dishes.
