Self-saucing chocolate pudding

23 May 2007

This delicious hot pudding is a real favourite in our home. It uses common pantry ingredients and it's very easy and quick. It's made in two parts, the pudding and the sauce. Although the sauce ends up under the pudding, it's actually added last.

1 cup self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa
60g (2 oz) butter
½ cup castor sugar
2 eggs
½ cup milk

¾ cup brown sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
1½ cups boiling water

Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F. Sift the flour and cocoa. Cream the butter and castor sugar. Add the eggs and mix well. Stir in flour, cocoa and milk. Pour into a pudding dish.
For the sauce, mix brown sugar, cocoa and water in a jug. Turn a large spoon upside down and pour this choco mixture onto the spoon that is placed just above the pudding mix. You want to pour it onto the pudding without disturbing it too much. Bake in preheated oven for 40 mins.
You can make this in coffee cups, little dishes or a large bowl. It's deliciously crispy on the top with a thick chocolate sauce inside.
