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.
