Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to normal bake at 180°C.
  2. Melt your butter and mix in the sugar and cocoa powder (from the mixture, not self sauce section)
  3. Add your flour, baking powder and salt. Mix these in until combined, but there is no need to over mix here.
  4. Add your milk and vanilla essence and mix it in.
  5. Put your mixture into a dish. Make sure that the dish is deep enough, as the self saucing will boil up. A dish of around 20-25cm is a good size, but make sure the mixture at this point only comes up to around a quarter of the dishes height.
  6. With the brown and white sugar and cocoa powder for the sauce, put it on top of your mixture.
  7. When you are ready to put it in the oven, pour your boiling water on top of the mixture. Pouring onto a spoon will help to spread the water without making holes in the mixture below.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes at 180°C. You'll know when it's ready, trust me!
Recipe Notes

Serve this pudding hot, with whipped cream or ice cream. It will really compliment the chocolate sauce and the warm/cold mix is a dessert delight!

    1. Hi, thanks for pointing that out. It has been fixed now, there should be 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder in the mixture and 4 in the sauce. Thanks again!

    1. Hi, thanks for the feedback! That was the recipe that was submitted but there might be an error in there, we’ll reduce it down to 1 tsp. Thanks!

      1. I used to use this recipe all the time (before website was updated) and used 4 tsp of baking powder, which worked just fine! I was actually trying to figure out if this was the same website and recipes as before, and this comment confirms it must be, so thanks haha!!

        1. Does that mean that with 1 tblsp baking powder instead of 4 that was earlier, ( and used too by of I the readers with success), the recipe will fail? Happy to hear from you
