Chocolate self saucing scrummy hot pud!

When the cold evenings are rolling in the last thing you fancy is a salad! this quick, easy recipe can be made as soon as you head in from work, make some pasta or a quick main dish-then shove this in the oven and leave for 30-40 minutes. Take the time to have a shower, change out of those work clothes, relax and grab a book or watch some BlackAdder DVDs or Mighty Boosh : )

By the time you have settled in and eaten your main, the beeper will go and there you are a nice hot pudding ready to be devoured with a tad of cream or ice cream! just right for a cosy night in front of the fire or wood burner : )

PS-this recipe has little washing up too a bonus! all you use is a wooden spoon, mixing bowl, scales and the oven serving dish : )

NB The photo does not do the taste justice! : )


  • 130g plain flour
  • 70g granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 120 ml milk
  • 4-g melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • few drops vanilla extract if wanted


  1.  Preheat oven to 200’c.
  2. grease oven dish (flat, large dish)
  3. mix all of the above ingredients together then put the mixture into the dish and flatten out.
  4. Boil 300-400ml water.
  5. Sprinkle 2 tbsp of cocoa powder and 1 cup of brown sugar (normal will work too!) over the mixture.
  6. Once the kettle has boiled carefully pour the hot water over the dish contents and carefully put into oven. Ensure you put a oven tray under it in case of overspill of the chocolate sauce!

Take out after 30-40 minutes when the sauce has formed and thickened-serve in large portions with cream!
