Scrumptious chocolate puddings that I could eat for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I measured everything out and apart from the oven part Little and Small did everything else.
We used beautiful little white porcelain pots that originally came full of chocolate fondant from the Serious Food Company at Waitrose. I'm a marketing persons dream!
65g self raising flour
4 tbsp decent cocoa powder
½ tsp baking powder
80g butter (at room temp)
80g soft brown sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
50g soft brown sugar
200ml hot water
First pre-heat the oven to 180C, then make the sauce - Mix the cocoa and sugar in a bowl, add a little water and mix to a paste. Gradually add the rest of the water.
Then make the pudding by mixing all of the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. Here's the fun part you can mix it with your hands or you can use a wooden spoon. (The children love doing this with their hands – obviously! If you're going to go for this option I would suggest they do it in just a t.shirt with an apron over.)Pour and scrape the pudding mixture into the oven-proof dish & cover with the sauce.
If doing individual puddings half fill with the pudding mix, then add just enough sauce to cover. There needs to be enough room for them to rise. Place the dish on baking tray in the middle of the oven. Bake for 12 minutes. The puddings should have risen well by then.
