Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding turns everyday into a Special Occasion

Dessert was rare at family meals in our household. There was never enough time and, besides, it wasn’t healthy. We went through a phase of this pud where my son, Sven, offered to help to reduce the time problem. Having dessert always felt like a great occasion and everyone tucked in excitedly. 

Serves 4

1 cup self raising Flour
2T(30g) cocoa
60g butter
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup milk
1 egg
½ cup walnuts

Topping: Mix 1T(15g) cocoa with ¾ cup sticky brown sugar.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Sift flour and cocoa.
  3. Cream butter and castor sugar in a clean bowl with the Kenwood or a hand beater.
  4. Add walnuts, egg and then some of the flour mixture to the butter mix.
  5. As the mixture dries add milk and little by little the rest of flour mixture.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Place into 4 greased individual ramekins.
  8. Sprinkle topping over mixture in ramekins.
  9. Just before putting into oven gently pour 100ml boiling water over each ramekin.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes until cake is firm.
  11. Serve with cream or ice cream. The puddings will be hot so consider emptying into another dish for younger children.
