Chocolate Pudding Recipe

This chocolate pudding is so easy to make and tastes delicious. I make this if I have friends or family drop by as I usually have the ingredients hanging around the kitchen. You can make different versions such as jaffa by adding some orange zest or mocha by adding some coffee. Adding some dried chilli flakes is also a wonderful variation if you want to spice things up... maybe when your lover drops by next time... Enjoy!

The recipe is from the Australian Good Taste magazine - June 2006, page 90.


Ingredients

·        Melted butter, to grease

·        150g (1 cup) self-raising flour

·        100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

·        2 tbs cocoa powder

·        125ml (1/2 cup) milk

·        50g butter, melted

·        1 egg, lightly whisked

·        Thickened cream, to serve


Chocolate sauce

·        155g (3/4 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar

·        2 tbs cocoa powder

·        375ml (1 1/2 cups) boiling water


1.    Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a 1.5L (6-cup) capacity ovenproof dish with melted butter to lightly grease.

2.    Combine the flour, sugar and cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Make a well in the centre. Combine the milk, butter and egg in a large jug. Gradually pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir until well combined. Pour into the prepared dish and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface.

3.    To make the chocolate sauce, sift the sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl. Sprinkle over the pudding mixture in the dish. Gently pour the boiling water over the cocoa mixture.

4.    Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until a cake-like top forms and a skewer inserted halfway into the centre comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Serve with thickened cream, if desired.
