Listen to my top tips on how to make this delicious recipe.
Serves 4 220g caster sugar 150g self-raising flour 50g cocoa powder, plus extra to dust 60g unsalted butter, melted 125ml of milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 egg 200ml boiling water Here’s how: Preheat the oven to 160°C. Pour 200g of the sugar into a large mixing bowl. Then sift the flour and 25g of cocoa into the bowl and mix together. Make a well in the centre. Now in a separate bowl, whisk melted butter, milk, vanilla extract and the egg. Pour into the well and fold ingredients together. Spread mixture evenly into a non-stick baking dish. Mix the remaining sugar and cocoa and sprinkle over the top of the pudding. Carefully pour the boiling water over the top of the pudding. This will create a sauce that will sink to the bottom of the pudding whilst it bakes. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top is firm. Stand for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream.
