Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

So we held a vote & I thought the Raspberry Frangipane Tart was going to take it out, but it was neck in neck at the end & the Self Saucing Pud is the easier by far so we’ll start with that one! I can’t take the credit for this, it’s my Mummy’s recipe and it’s fantastic! By all means double the recipe if you are serving 4 or more people.

You will need:

1 cup Self Raising Flour

½ Cup White Sugar

Pinch of Salt

1 Tbsp Cocoa

2 Tbsp Butter

½ cup of Milk

Sauce – ½ Cup Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp Cocoa

1 ½ Cups hot water

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Melt the butter & milk in a large saucepan, sift dry ingredients into the saucepan & mix into a firm dough. Pour into a greased baking dish – 4 cup capacity.

In a small bowl mix the cocoa & brown sugar, then sprinkle over the pudding dough, pour over the hot water & bake for 30 mins or until set.

Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream or Cream.

    • No, its a bit like a chocolate sponge on top with the sauce underneath, some how magically the brown sugar, cocoa & hotwater that you put on top of the pudding becomes a delicious chocolaty sauce underneath. Just make sure that your dish isn’t too shallow as the pudding part rises a bit – I would recommend doubling the recipe because it’s very yummy!
