I’ve neglected the recipes for a while – sorry! – but now that it’s autumn I thought it was time for a nice warm pudding. This recipe was given to me years ago by my sister-in-law, and it never fails. It’s very quick and easy to whip up. I usually make it while the dinner’s cooking and pop it in the hot oven so it cooks while we eat our main course. Then it’s just a matter of whipping some cream and voila!

Sue’s Chocolate Saucy Pud


1 cup plain flour

1/4 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon melted butter

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 egg

For sauce:

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup boiling water

1 tablespoon cocoa powder


Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder together in a bowl, then add milk, sugar and melted butter. Mix, then add vanilla and egg. Pour into a greased pie dish.

Make a sauce by mixing the brown sugar, boiling water and additional cocoa powder together in a separate jug. Pour gently over pudding mixture in pie dish.

Bake at 180 degrees Celcius for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm, with whipped (chantilly) cream.

Serves 4.
