This is the easiest chocolate self-saucing pudding recipe we’ve tried – and the best. Serve piping hot with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top.
100g butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1. Preheat oven to 180C. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl.
2. In another bowl, sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder together. Fold into the butter mixture.
3. Spoon into a medium-size greased baking dish. Mixture together the sauce ingredients and sprinkle over the batter.
4. Carefully pour the boiling water over the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
