Saucy Chocolate Pudding 

Quick and easy microwave pudding. Ready in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Ideal treat for your family or to make for unexpected guests. Makes 4 puddings served in ramekins. You can easily double the ingredients for feeding a larger group of people. I serve mine with thin homemade custard but it tastes delicious with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Saucy Chocolate Pudding


1/2 cup self-raising flour

1/3 cup caster sugar

3 Tbsp soft butter or margarine

2 large eggs

3 Tbsp cocoa powder

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

For the chocolate sauce you’ll need:

1/2 cup soft dark brown sugar

3 tsp cocoa powder

1/2 cup hot water

Make the sauce by blending sugar and cocoa with the water.

Grease 4 large ramekins or a 1 litre bowl suitable to use in the a microwave.
Place all pudding ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until thoroughly blended. Turn into prepared dish and level surface.
Carefully pour chocolate sauce over the pudding mixture.


If using a 1 litre dish, cook on full power for 4 ½ minutes (800W)
If using ramekins cook one at time for 1 minute each

Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving. Serve on its own, with thin custard, a dollop of whipped fresh cream or a scoop of ice cream. #capemalaycooking
