the Ingredients are simple, basic ones that you probably already have lying around! if not, their almost certainly easily available
for the pudding
60g butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup white sugar (thats the bag only half in the picture!)
1 cup Self-Raising flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
for the sauce (oops..no photo)
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water
large oven proof dish (casserole dish, etc)
wooden spoon or spatula
Step 2: Make the Pudding
In your oven-proof dish, combine pudding ingredients previously listed (do not add "sauce" ingredients). mix thoroughly until well combined. it will look like theres not nearly enough mixture in the bottom of the dish, but it will swell up a lot!
smooth over base of pan so that its fairly flat. from this point on you don't need to mix anymore so go ahead and throw your wooden spoon in the sink!
Step 3: Make the Sauce
take your brown sugar and remaining cocoa powder and sprinkle over the top of your pudding layer, do not stir.
boil water and carefully measure and pour over the pudding mix.
once again, do not stir
Step 4: Bake
Bake your pudding in a oven preheated to 160 degrees (Celsius) for 20-30 minutes. it will be cooked when the cake has swollen, formed a crust and the sauce has "disappeared"
Step 5: Serve
when you spoon out this pudding, you will see the three layers- crispy cake top, gooey pudding inside and a rich chocolate sauce on the bottom
spoon into individual bowls, serve with cream or ice cream (or any other preferred topping) any enjoy!
