{Nana's Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding}

This recipe comes from Jays mum, its a big family hit, even the granddaughters whip it up and I bet you have all the ingredients in the pantry, its one of those recipes for when you decide you want a pudding an hour before its required and you don't want to pop to the shops. 

This is exactly what happened at our house on saturday night, the first glasses of wine had been poured, dinner was in the oven (Egyptian Fish Stew, recipe coming), the dvd was waiting to be watched (City Island would definitely recommend it!) anyway back to the pudding, the kids love it with its magic chocolate sauce and with a dollop of vanilla icecream or cream and a few berries you will too, this recipe is actually just like my mum in law, sweet, easy going and a comfort to have on call.

...the pudding
1 cup plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

...the saucey bit
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 3/4 cups warm water

Preheat oven to 180. Combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa, salt and sugar in a bowl and then add in the milk, melted butter and vanilla and mix till combined, dollop it into your pudding dish (I used a standard pyrex pie dish). Sprinkle over the brown sugar, cocoa then top with the water and bake for 45 minutes, let it sit for a couple of minutes then serve.


  1. i love any dessert that can whipped up in no time!! looks rich and lushious!

  2. ahhh, love this, esp cold the next day...such nostalgia! We are lazy and microwave it, even faster but nicer baked.

  3. Oh I wish I could have some now. Comfort eating at its best.
