Chocolate Pudding in a Mug

Serves 1
 
 
In the early days of microwave ovens, a recipe like this was always part of the demonstrations given by manufacturers' home economists. It proved how fast and how much fun the microwave could be. It still does.
1   tablespoon cornstarch
     
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
     
2   tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup milk
     
1/4   teaspoon vanilla extract

    1. In a large mug (at least 12 ounces), dissolve the cornstarch, cocoa, and sugar in the milk.

    2. Microwave on high for 90 seconds, or until mixture boils.

    3. Stir in the vanilla extract.

    4. Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.

Substitutions: Instead of cocoa, use 3 tablespoons chocolate bits. Stir them into the hot pudding with the vanilla. Instead of vanilla, use orange zest, grated or very finely julienned.
