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!

Ingredients:

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

Method

  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.
