Guinness and chocolate combine to create something truly amazing during this pudding that’s seasoned with a Guinness topping syrup.
I love the mixture of Guinness and also the taste of chocolate lately! Guinness, similar to coffee, has the flexibility to bring out the natural flavor of chocolate and make it even better, if possible. Even after the Guinness chocolate cheesecake and also the burly cake I used to be trying to find something else and this Guinness pudding I found at Epicurius was pretty good. This recipe not only uses the Guinness within the pudding but also reduces some Guinness in an exceeding syrup then mixes it into topping which you place on top of the pudding just like the bubbling head of a Guinness after pouring it! How fresh is it?

Guinness and chocolate combine to form something truly amazing in this pudding that is topped with a Guinness syrup whipped cream.
- 1 can Guinness Draught
- 3 cups heavy cream
- 7 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
- 8 large egg yolks
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
- Pour the Guinness into a large bowl and wait a few minutes for the foam to subside.
- Mix half of the Guinness and 2 1/4 cups of heavy cream in a large saucepan, heat over medium until bubbles just start to form, remove from heat, mix in the chocolate and let it melt.
- Mix the eggs and 1 cup of sugar in a large bowl and slowly mix in the Guinness mixture.
- Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes.
- Give the mixture 1 minute on high in the blender, run it through a fine-mesh sieve, divide between glasses leaving 1 inch of space, cover in plastic, and let chill in the fridge to set.
- Meanwhile, simmer the remaining Guinness and sugar over medium heat until it has reduced to about 1 tablespoon, about 15-20 minutes, and let cool.
- Beat the remaining cream until soft peaks form, mix in the Guinness syrup, and place on top of the Guinness pudding in the glasses.
