Serve this "gravy" -- basically a thin chocolate pudding -- over buttermilk biscuits that have been split and buttered. Garnish the plate with raspberries or strawberries, if you like.
Hands on time: 12 minutes Total time: 12 minutes Serves: 8
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups whole milk
4 tablespoons ( 1/2 stick) butter
In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and cocoa with a whisk until no clumps of flour or cocoa remain. Whisk in the milk until well-combined. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to boil and then thickens like gravy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter until it melts.
