Recipe: Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

A somewhat grown up version because I didn't have any cocoa in the house and had to settle for 70% cocoa chocolate.

Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

60g butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
75g dark chocolate
2 cups boiling water


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and grease an oven proof bowl or dish lightly with butter or oil.

  • Melt the butter and milk together and then slowly melt in 50g of the chocolate.

  • In the oven proof dish mix the flour, sugar, milk mixture and 1 teaspoon of vanilla

  • Grate the remaining chocolate over the top of the batter.

  • Add the water to the bowl; it should sit over the batter prior to baking.

  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the centre of the crust is firm to the touch.

  • Serve with cream or ice cream. Serves 4 quite contendedly.

  • Because this is an eggless dessert this could easily be made with non dairy ingredients for a vegan delight.
