Melting Chcolate Pudding

Published Saturday, 10 April, 2010 by Naomi

The Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence



  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 100g dark chocolate , roughly chopped
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 175ml milk
  • 50g butter , melted
  • 1 egg
  • 150g dark muscovado sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder


To make the chocolate sponge pudding, heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, ground almonds, chocolate and sugar together. Then stir the milk, butter and egg together and mix into the dry ingredients. Spoon into 6 individual ramekins or ovenproof dishes.

To make the sauce, mix the sugar and cocoa powder and gradually stir in 300ml boiling water. Spoon this over the sponge mixture.

Bake the puddings for 20 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 170C/fan 150C/gas 3 and cook for a further 10 minutes until the sponge feels firm to the touch - the sauce will be lurking underneath. Serve straight from the oven with cream.
