Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • 1¼ cups boiling water
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Sift flour, castor sugar, and cocoa into a bowl. Add milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Mix together and place in a lightly greased pudding bowl. I use a 17cm soufflé dish.
  3. Place the brown sugar, cocoa, and boiling water in a large container with a lid (a jar works perfectly) and shake well to combine. Pour over the liquid over the cake mixture.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until the cake part is cooked.
  5. Serve with whipped cream or ice-cream.
