Recipe: Chocolate Sponge Pudding with Chocolate Sauce

I was in the supermarket looking at puddings for tea when I asked my other half if he wanted one of the ones on the shelf or if I should make us a pudding when we got home. We decided I would make us a pudding but I was inspired by the chocolate puddings on offer in the supermarket as they always come with a yummy chocolate sauce. Usually I miss out this sort of addition to my puddings but this chocolate sauce is so simple and so yummy I won’t chicken out again!


For the sponge

  • 150g caster sugar
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 60ml milk
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 85g margarine

For the sauce

  • 25g dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa solids)
  • 50g milk chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 100ml double cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and Line and grease an approx 15cm diameter round cake tin.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the sponge in to a bowl and mix together with a wooden spoon or electric whisk.
  3. Put the cake mix in to the greased tin and bake in the oven for approximately 30 mins. It will be a little gooey in the centre but if you put a skewer in it should come out mostly clean. Leave to cool slightly whilst you make the chocolate sauce.
  4. Put the chocolates, butter and cream in a small pan over a low heat and stir continuously until all melted together.
  5. Serve the sauce poured over your sponge.

Tip: The sauce can easily be doubled up if you want more or you can serve with additional cream or icecream.
