I warn you that if you like chocolate and you like cake..you will LOVE these. Easy to make.. Far too easy to devour.
Every week I try to make something that will appear on that weeks episode of Great British Bake Off – this week the theme is desserts and their first challenge is to make a pudding.
Well my little family haven’t been very well this week and the lingering after effects of a stomach and cold bug are still present in everyone apart from me. So I thought as nobody else would be keen to eat chocolate pud I would try to make an individual serving – but none of this cake in a mug malarkey ( which is good but not what I fancied) I wanted a proper pudding with sauce.
It turned out pretty perfect. In fact I would make no changes to the recipe at all if I made it again. Its more than enough for one hungry person..in fact considering they were unwell two other hungry people shared mine with me.
You should bake this in a ramekin or pudding dish which will comfortably contain 250ml of liquid.
Individual Chocolate Self Saucing Pud
You will need:
For the pud:
35g of SR flour
35g of Caster Sugar
35g of whole milk
15g of melted butter ( * tip – melt it in your ramekin in the microwave for 20secs – saves you greasing it )
5g of cocoa powder
15g of beaten egg ( about a tablespoon & a half )
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
For the sauce:
5g of cocoa powder
25g of soft brown sugar
40ml of boiling water
Preheat oven to gas mark 4.
Mix all of your pud ingredients together until smooth in a mixing bowl then put into your greased ramekin to join your melted butter.
Now for your sauce..combine your brown sugar and cocoa powder together in another bowl and cover the surface of the pudding with the dry mix. Slowly cover with hot water, should be approx 40ml you want it to cover all of the sauce mix but obviously don’t overfill.
Bake for 18-20 minutes until fully set on top and firm. Then dig in, the top should be fluffy and moist with an awesome underlay of chocolate gooeyness.
These were totally and utterly delectable. You need to try them!
