Harvest Supper and Chocolate Puddings

Well it's been a while since I posted but by popular demand here is the receipe for the Chocolate pudding which took our Harvest Supper by storm

Debden Chocolate Pudding

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 1 hour
Cool Time: 1 hour
Pre heat oven to 170°C or Gas Mark 3

Ingredients for 6-8 people
4oz/100-125g Plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6oz/175g Granulated sugar
1oz/25g Plain Chocolate-melted
2 tbsp butter - melted
1/4 pint/150ml Milk
2oz/50g brown sugar
2oz/50g caster sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
6 fl oz/175ml cold water

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

Stir in the granulated sugar, melted chocolate and melted butter.

Blend in the milk.

Pour the mixture into a buttered 1.5 pint/850ml ovenproof dish.
Sprinkle over the top the brown sugar, caster sugar and cocoa in separate layers.
Pour over the cold water (yes pour over the cold water and don't fret!!)

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 1 hour.

A layer of chocolate fudge sauce will form under the sponge topping as the pudding cooks. Let the pudding cool for an hour before serving but do not chill.

Serve with whipped cream or ice-cream

(though it is also rather nice with custard!)
