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.  Treat yourself this weekend and rustle one up!


225g self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

125g caster sugar

50g cocoa powder

100g butter, melted

200ml milk

3 eggs, large


300ml boiling water

200g light muscovado sugar

25g cocoa powder


100g mixed chocolate chips (completely optional, this pud is great even without the extra choc!)

Serves: 6

Preheat the oven to 160c(fan)/180c/Gas Mark 4.

Grease an ovenproof dish with a little butter ( I’m using one that’s approx. 8” x 8”)


Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.


Whisk together the milk and the eggs,  pour them over the dry ingredients along with the melted butter.

Stir in the chocolate chips and then transfer the whole lot to the buttered dish.

Pour it over the cake mixture in the dish, yes, I know that’s a bit weird and it looks odd.  You’ll just have to trust me!


Now into the oven for 35 minutes.

Just like magic the cake bakes and a chocolate sauce forms underneath.


Serve it up hot or cold, with a good dollop of ice cream or a glug of cream.
