Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding Recipe

Whenever we were having guests over for dinner we would always ask mum to make her yummy self saucing chocolate pudding.
This has always been a family favourite and one that is great for those cooler winter months. It is such an easy recipe to make and I know it will be one that your family will ask for again and again.
I always serve mine up hot and usually place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top or some whipped cream in a bowl on the table for those who want it slightly richer.


1 cup SR flour ( I use organic)
1/2 cup fresh milk (can use hi lo)
60g butter
3/4 cup sugar (either white or brown)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
extra 2/3 cup sugar
extra 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water


Preheat oven to 180C.
Grease an ovenproof round casserole dish that will hold 6 cups.
Heat butter with the milk in a small saucepan on top of the stove until the butter is starting to melt. Turn off heat but leave on stove until the butter is melted. Remove and let cool for 2 minutes.
Pour milk mix into a medium size mixing bowl. Add sifted flour and cocoa, then vanilla essence and sugar. Mix thoroughly either with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer.
Pour into the casserole dish.
Combine extra sugar and cocoa and mix through so there are no lumps in the cocoa.
Spoon over the top of the pudding mixture and then gently pour over the boiling water.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.
Serve hot.
