This has to be the easiest and a really awesome hot pudding. It was made by Matt Preston in a masterclass. Being addicted to chocolate makes me a sucker for any chocolate recipe. This pudding served with cream or icecream is amazing.
2 Cups flour
1 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup cocoa powder
120g Melted butter
5ml Vanilla essence
3Tb Cocoa powder
2 Cups boiling water
Mix dry ingredients and make a well in the middle. Blend the milk, melted butter and 2 eggs. Add the vanilla essence.
Don’t overmix. Pour mixture into a medium sized dish.
On top, sprinkle the sugar, then the cocoa powder and gently pour the 2 cups boiled water.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. The top must be crusted and the pudding must still wobble. Over cooked makes it a sponge cake.
When done, remove and serve hot with icecream or cream.
