Bake this saucy chocolate pudding for your next occasion! It sure is a crowd pleaser!
This chocolate pudding is a childhood favorite of mine, just like the Malva Pudding, and to this day I love it. I have a sweet tooth and love all things chocolate, perhaps that is why it’s a fav, so be warned- it is quite sweet!
What is great about this pudding is that it is saucy enough that you don’t need extra toppings such as cream, ice cream or custard. But, you can if you wish. Also, you need only a few key ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Find the full recipe below to print for your records.
Bake the “cake” first and while it is baking prepare your sauce. The hot sauce is poured slowly over the baked cake while still warm so that the sauce seeps into the cake- hence the name saucy pudding.
A sweet and saucy chocolate pudding that will become one of your family’s favorite too!
