Saucy chocolate pudding

It doesn’t have to be winter for me to love making and eating this pudding.  It’s a dense, moist pudding drenched in the most chocolaty sauce you can imagine.

Growing up my mother used to make this chocolate pudding.  It was chocolate perfection as far as comfort food goes.  I found a copy of this highly fulfilling self-saucing recipe during the last year and have since made it more times than I should imagine.

50g butter

200ml caster sugar

1 egg

250ml cake flour

25ml cocoa powder

15ml baking powder

2ml salt

200ml milk

Cream the butter and sugar.  Add the egg and beat until light and fluffy.  Sift the dry ingredients and add, to the butter mixture, alternating with milk.  Spoon into a large oven proof dish.

Syrup

250ml water

250ml brown sugar

25ml Cocoa powder

5ml Vanilla essence

Mix all the ingredients, except the vanilla essence in a saucepan, heat and stir until sugar has dissolved and mixture starts to boil.  Add the essence.

Pour the syrup over the batter and bake at 180C / 350F for 30 minutes.
