Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding recipe by Baking Makes Things Better 
Now that it’s getting colder it is the perfect excuse to bake yourself a yummy warm pudding! This is super quick, super easy and super delicious. Another bonus about this pudding is that it can all be mixed in the dish you cook it in (I suggest using a Pyrex dish).

1 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cocoa
½ cup white sugar
60 grams butter
½ cup cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 teaspoons cocoa
½ cup brown sugar (can substitute with white sugar)
2 cups boiling water

Mix flour, baking powder, first measure of cocoa (1 tablespoon), and sugar in your cooking dish.
Melt butter, add milk and vanilla and mix to combine with dry ingredients.
Mix second measure of cocoa and brown sugar. Sprinkle on top.
Carefully pour boiling water over.
Bake in a 180˚C oven for 35 minutes, or until cooked.
Serve with ice cream and/or cream.

*Because of using the brown sugar the sauce had a yummy caramel taste, if you want it to be more chocolatey I would recommend using the white sugar.

  1. Hey, just wanna say: Your guys blog is super cool! I love that you're so passionate about baking, and love to try new things and share your experiences! The photography looks so professional too. I have a question: Do you have a celebrity/favourite chef you aspire to? Thanks, Ellen B, Nelson (NZ)

  2. Personally I like watching Nigella Lawson on TV, and I like the style of Donna Hay - I love catching a cooking demonstration by her when she comes to the Auckland food show :)

  3. I really like your blog and I have made a few recipes out of it! I was going through your posts to make sure I didn't miss anything, and I seen that you said it was getting colder! I love in ohio, United States and it was finally getting warm over here! It has been in the 90's (farenheit) which is very warm! (roughly 32c) Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that you had veiwers all the way out here and I thought it was funny about the temperature :) Keep blogging!

  4. Aww, thanks for the comment! Super jealous about your lovely warm weather :)
