WOW! This is too funny! I was planning on posting this this morning. I had a dream about chocolate gravy being poured over hot buttered biscuits last night. I'll post my recipe as soon as I get back, but I think it is about the same as chocolatechefs.

Is double cream the same as heavy cream in the states? I think that is our richest cream. Thanks.

I believe so - but I'm only about 95 per cent sure! Its thick and rich, but not as thick as Cornish/Devon clotted cream, if that helps.

This is the recipe that I use but instead of 2C. milk I use 1C. evaporated milk & 1C. whole milk. It makes it a little creamier & richer.

CHOCOLATE GRAVY

1 c. sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa
2 tbsp. flour
2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. butter
Sift sugar, flour, and cocoa together in saucepan, add milk. On medium heat stir until gravy thickens to desired consistancy. Remove from heat add butter and vanilla. Great over hot biscuits for chocolate lovers breakfast.

This is also a good one. But again, use 1/2 evaporated milk & 1/2 whole milk. http://wandascountryhomeholidays.com...avy/index.html

Ishbel, your recipe is what we would call a sauce. Chocolate gravy is always made with flour, just like a gravy is. It's thick. Doesn't have to be particularly sweet unless you want it sweet. It's more or less a chocolate flavored thick bechamel sauce.

It's usually eaten on biscuits. American biscuits. I know in Europe, biscuit means something else.

Crivvens.... this 'common language' ain't so common, is it? Same words, different meanings!

I suppose it's a bit like the French habit of dipping brioche into bowls of milky chocolatey cocoa type drinks for breakfast?

It's funny, breakfasts are never usually sweet in the UK - well, OPK, marmalade on your toast could count as sweet, I suppose!

You're right about the language thing. I grew up thinking a bonnet was a cute little hat girls wore only to find out in some places, such as England, a bonnet was the hood of a car!

Other common misunderstandings

Sidewalk, there = pavement, here

elevator, there = lift, here

trunk (of car) there = boot, here

Our 'ground floor' in a multi-storey building is your first floor - our firstfloor is the one above ground level....

Ah yes, the joys of us speaking 'one' language 8)

I knew all the examples except for the one about ground and first floors. I never knew that.
