SAY CHOCOLATE – COCOA SELF-SAUCING PUDDING

DSCN2164I found this recipe a long time ago reading one of the local news papers in PERTH.  It is the perfect comfort food on a cold winter’s day, besides your home will smell delicious.

INGREDIENTS

175g self-raising flour

30g almond meal

120g caster sugar

1/3 cup cocoa

1 cup milk

100g melted butter

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

FOR THE TOPPING

180g brown sugar

3 tablespoons cocoa

2 1/2 cups boiling water

METHOD

1- Pre-heat the oven to 180C and butter a 1.5 litre casserole dish.

2- In a bowl sift and combine flour, almond meal, caster sugar, and cocoa.

3- In a separate jug, combine milk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix well.

4- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix well to form a smooth, thick batter.

5- Pour the batter into the casserole dish and spread evenly.

6- Make the topping by combining the brown sugar and cocoa to make a sandy mixture.

7- Sprinkle the sandy mixture over the batter, and then delicately pour the boiling water over the batter and topping.

8- Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until it puffs in the centre and the pudding feels firm to the touch.

9- Serve warm with a dusting of cocoa.

TIPS

– When mixing the batter do not be too concerned about any lumps as they create delicious pockets of flavour.

– Serve with a big spoon of double cream or Chantilly cream.
