Chocolate spread

Since the golden syrup was used up this week and my little bit of chocolate (my 5th of the sweet ration) seems to have gone walkabouts, #WhistlesInnocently, I had to be a little creative. There was still some of the ‘loaf’ leftover from yesterdays pudding…. so we thought this was an excelent opportunity to try out Marguerite Pattens chocolate spread recipe.

  • 1oz Bournville cocoa
  • 1.5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 dessertspoon flour
  • 0.5 cup milk

Mix the dry ingredients. Add the milk gradually and bring to the boil. Beat until quite smooth. Allow to cool.

VARIATIONS:  I dont like the bitter taste of Bournville cocoa so I only used half and ounce and the other half ounce Asda generic hot chocolate. I also added a tbsp or two of icing sugar to sweeten the mixture.

  1. This looks worth trying. Apparently Nutella was developed in the wartime because of chocolate shortages.
    Feeling very virtuous this weekend- found some sad squashed old bread rolls at the back of the freezer and made a splendid wartime Bread Pudding with them!
