Melting Chocolate Puddings

I saw one program about cooking in BBC UK some weeks ago about this kind of pudding. I wrote down only the ingredients so of course when I wanted to make it I don’t know anymore what am I suppose to do with all the ingredients :p so I googled it but still couldn’t find the same recipe. But instead I found this recipe which was also on BBC UK.

Tried it and…hmm the result was quite nice though I found it was too dense sweet for my taste bud. Will reduce the amount of sugar another time.

Here is the copy of the recipe


– 150g self-raising flour (used 200gr because didn’t use ground almond)
– 4 tbsp cocoa powder
– 50gr ground almonds (didn’t use this because didn’t have it 😛 )
– 100g dark chocolate , roughly chopped
– 200gr caster sugar
– 175ml milk
– 50g butter , melted
– 1 egg


– 150g dark muscovado sugar (sort of brown sugar)
– 3 tbsp cocoa powder
– 300 ml boiling water

– To make the chocolate sponge pudding, heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, ground almonds, chocolate and sugar together. Then stir the milk, butter and egg together and mix into the dry ingredients. Spoon into 6 individual ramekins or 1 big ovenproof dishes.
– To make the sauce, mix the sugar and cocoa powder and gradually stir in 300ml boiling water. Spoon this over the sponge mixture.
– Bake the puddings for 20 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 170C/fan 150C/gas 3 and cook for a further 10 minutes until the sponge feels firm to the touch
– the sauce will be lurking underneath. Serve straight from the oven with cream.
