ingredients

serves 4
100 g (4 oz) self-raising flour, sieved
50 g (2 oz) sugar
30 ml (2 level tbsp) unsweetened cocoa powder, sieved
50 g (2 oz) walnuts, chopped
50 g (2 oz) butter, melted
150 ml (1/4 pt) milk
few drops vanilla essence

for the sauce

125 g (5 oz) soft brown sugar
30 g (2 tbsp) unsweetened cocoa powder, sieved
4 Tablespoons boiling water

method

1. To make the sponge, put the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the butter, milk and essence and mix to form a thick batter.

2. Pour the mixture into a buttered 900 ml (1 1/2 pt) ovenproof dish.

3. To make the sauce, mix together the brown sugar, cocoa and boiling water. Pour this sauce over the batter.

4. Bake in the oven at 180°C (350°F) Gas 4 for about 40 minutes. During cooking the chocolate sponge rises to the top, and a chocolate fudge sauce forms underneath.

5. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

My mother has always made this chocolate self-saucing pudding for as long as I can remember. I tried this recipe out and it tastes exactly like my moms. But instead of the walnuts, I use coconut and always double the recipe. It's so good the next day and I make smaller ones in rammikens (probably spelt that wrong). But thank you! It's brilliant!
Very Disappointed!

For the brown sugar the sauce tastes nicer light muscovado which you can get from any sainsuburys...

Under-egging the pudding?

I was surprised that the sponge mixture has no eggs in it. Would probably make it richer and less like rusks or Rich Tea.

Surprisingly Good

I just spontaneously made this pudding. Substituted the chopped walnuts (didn't have any) for 85% dark chocolate chips. It turned out really well. My boyfriend liked it too and he's very fussy about chocolate puddings o only usually likes the Farmhouse Fayre ones!
I did use Green and Blacks organic cocoa, so perhaps it depends on the quality of the cocoa used as to how good it turns out?
Mine was EXCELLENT.

Hi I havent made the recipe yet, but I was wondering if you had to put the walnuts in?

I've been making the alternative recipe above for 20 years it's a family favourate! You can 1 or 2 tablespoons of Dark Rum instead of the Milk for Special Occasions and also chopped Walnuts. For the Sauce I put 4oz light brown sugar and 2 level tbsp of Cocoa Powder in a measuring jug and then top it up to 3/4 pint mark with boiling water.
