This is one of my favorite quick desserts - simple ingredients, not too complicated to put together and absolutely delicious. And with raspberries coming into season, I couldn't resist making this to accompany tonight's dinner of French onion soup and tiny chicken pies.

The SO calls it 'spoiling' him. *grin*


A recipe by Super Food Ideas' Winter Warmers

Makes 8 servings

INGREDIENTS (PUDDING):
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 0.5 cup brown sugar
  • 80gm butter, melted and cooled
  • 0.5 cup milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Fresh berries, icing sugar and/or thick cream to serve


INGREDIENTS (SAUCE):
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, shifted
  • 1.25 cups boiling water


DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. Grease 8 ramekins.

  2. Sift flour and cocoa into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar. In a mug, combine the butter, milk and egg. Slowly add to the flour mixture, whisking until combined and smooth. Smooth into each ramekin, smoothing the tops.

  3. Combine the sugar and cocoa powder for the sauce. Sprinkle over the pudding.

  4. Pour boiling water over the back of a large metal spoon over the pudding. Place the ramekins on a baking tray to bake for 35-40 mins or until pudding bounces back when pressed gently in the centre.

  5. Top each ramekin with fresh berries, dust a teaspoon of icing sugar over each ramekin and serve with cream.

It's the best! Warm chocolate pudding and when you spoon it out, there's a thick gooey chocolate sauce at the bottom.

Mmmmmm, looks great! My last attempt at a white chocolate version failed miserably, they just tasted like they were only half-baked.

I have an aversion to white chocolate as it is too sweet for me. However, I think I have a white chocolate and passionfruit self-saucing pudding recipe somewhere.

Self-saucing puddings are the best, cuz you can leave them in the warm oven for ages and they'll still be fine.

If you cut the sugar by a third, you get a more chocolatey self-saucing pudding without too much sweetness. So it'll still work with your diet. :)

Yup, it is, so with this recipe, you won't need me to make it for you.
