A superbly rich and comforting self saucing chocolate pudding that's so easy to make and a real showstopper at the dinner table. This will serve 4-6 people or just me! No really! I don't normally 'do' chocolate puddings but this one I make an exception!
In a large bowl cream the butter (or dairy free spread) and caster sugar until light.
Add beaten egg (or flax egg) and milk (or milk alternative) combine
Serve with custard and revel in your genius!
In a large bowl cream the butter and caster sugar until light. Add beaten egg and milk combine Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa Top Tip: I always sift from a greater height, this allows air particles to attach to the flour grains, thus encouraging a more impressive rise in the bake. Fold in dry sifted ingredients quickly Pour into an oven proof dish (big enough to hold a litre of water) and put to one side. to make the sauce mix a little of the water with the cocoa to make a paste to reduce chance of lumps Add the rest of the water and sugar and pour over the cake mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 30-35mins Serve with custard and revel in your genuis!
