Magic Chocolate Pudding


Today I’m writing about a recipe that I seriously LOVE – this ‘magic’ chocolate pudding tastes incredible and is a perfect family pudding so I thought I should let you know how I make it.IMG_0764


For the pudding:
4oz  margarine
4oz sugar
4oz  self raising flour
2 eggs
2tbsp cocoa powder
150g raspberries
For the sauce:
300ml boiling water
4oz brown sugar
2tbsp cocoa powder


First, preheat your oven to 180C and put all of the pudding ingredients listed above into a bowl and beat well with a mixer until smooth and creamy.

Once this is beaten well, optionally, fold in some raspberries which I think make this quite chocolate-heavy pudding a bit lighter and even more tasty!
Spread into a pudding dish, you will notice it doesn’t look like much mixture but don’t worry, that will change when its cooked.
In a jug, dissolve the brown sugar and cocoa in the boiling water before pouring over the pudding mixture slowly. This looks very out of proportion because there is so much more sauce than pudding but this is a ‘self-saucing’ pudding so the sauce sinks to the bottom when cooked .
Bake for about 25-30 minutes at 180C and when finished, the pudding will have come away from the edges of the dish and you will see the sauce bubbling up the sides.
It can be served with custard, ice-cream, cream or anything else you can think of. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading,
