We don't eat a lot of desserts, as generally have no room left after dinner, but sometimes you just get a hankering for one. Or, as in this case, see a recipe whilst flicking through the obligatory holiday Woman's Day.
The trick, I have discovered, is that self-saucing puddings need a lot more sauce than the recipe advises (the one in the picture was really yum, but needed more sauce. Thankfully we had plenty of cream!). So I have doubled the sauce and listed below. Bon appetit mes amis!
1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
75g butter melted and cooled
1/2 cup milk
Cream (oh yes, yum yum yum!)
Choc sauce - 2 tbsp cocoa, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups boiling water
- Grease 8 cup dish (I used a casserole-sized one, but smaller would have been probably been a bit better). Turn oven on to 180 degrees celcius.
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Whisk wet ingredients, combine with the dry and pour into dish.
- Sprinkle sauce cocoa and sugar over top of pudding batter. Pour boiling water over.
- Cook at for half hour.
- Serve with pouring or whipped cream. You could serve with a nice caramel custard too, and some fresh strawberries. Yum!!
