Homemade banana pudding and creamy cocoa for breakfast. My summer cold, which had been lurking for days, jumped out at me Saturday night. Sunday morning I wanted comfort food for breakfast. Fortunately I'd already made the banana pudding, using the recipe on the box of Nilla Wafers. No instant pudding here. real eggs to make the pudding from scratch.
The cocoa: 6 tbsp of sugar, 6 tbsp of dutch cocoa powder, 2.5 cups of whole milk, heat and stir till chocolate is dissolved. Add 2.5 cups of half and half, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Top each cup with whipped cream and orange zest. Internet source said this is the hot chocolate recipe used at the White House.
