Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

 

Self saucing chocolate pudding

What could be better than a chocolate pudding with lashings of chocolate sauce?  Well in my book, not too much! To add to the fact that this choc pud is just fantastic you can whip it up and have it in the oven in 10 minutes flat, it really is that easy.

Day 4 – Chocolate Christmas Cake

A super rich dark Christmas cake.  I’ve been making this for a few years now and I’m always asked for the recipe.  The chocolate isn’t an obvious flavour but it is what makes this cake so rich and luxurious.  It’s a great cake to make as the fruits only have an overnight soaking and it doesn’t need any feeding – bargain!
