Best Pud Ever

Chocolate Fudge Pudding.

My family's favourite hot pudding.
 Made from storecupboard ingredients. It needs cocoa not chocolate and no eggs which makes it reasonably economical. 



Don't worry, it is supposed to look like a cow pat.


You pour just-boiled water over the top just before it goes in the oven. When you spoon it out you will find it has made its own sauce underneath the crust.


Thick cream is essential in my opinion.
The recipe is here (right-hand page).

  5. How interesting and a conversation piece dessert as well. Sure my girls will love it . Thanks. P.S. Darina Allen (Ballymalloe cookery school) has a delicious christmas cake recipe which she marzipans, and then puts back in the oven for 15mins for the marzipan to melt and harden. No icing. Enjoyed your blog for the first time today.

  9. I'm sure I've read about this pudding in a magazine recently... can't remember where but I do remember it not looking like much, but when you cut through it, all that chocolate goo comes out and it looks heavenly!! Not sure what my nigella-ish hips would say about it though!

  10. This looks delicious, perfect for winter nights. I've made the Nigella version before but I'm pretty sure that she uses chocolate and I'm on a bit of an economy drive at the moment so this is perfect!

  13. I wasn't convinced, when I sprinkled the cocoa and sugar on top and added the water, but it works! Amazing - you'd never know how frugal it is. Thanks for sharing! :)

  14. This is so yummy. I recently used a slightly different recipe before and was not wowed. I then remembered your "cow pat" post from years ago and tried this one out for my second trial. I followed the recipe exactly, except halved the sugar. It turned out so delicious my goodness! With a mountain of whipped cream on top... Goshdarn! A keeper. Thank you for sharing.
