Essentials recipe Self-saucing chocolate pudding is a mouth-watering treat for the whole family. Ready in just an hour, this sticky sweet pud serves up to 6 people and is rich and gooey with a creamy chocolate sauce. Push the boat out and serve this self-saucing pudding with a generous spoonful of custard or cream.

Ingredients

  • 1tsp sunflower oil
  • 410g can prunes in natural juices, drained and pitted
  • 6tbsp granulated sweetener- stevia based
  • 2 medium free range eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla paste
  • 160g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 20g cocoa
  • 75ml semi skimmed milk

For the sauce:
  • 150g light muscovado sugar
  • 20g cocoa, sifted

Before serving leave the pud to sit for about 10 mins so the sauce can thicken.

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/gas 4. Rub a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish with the oil. Make the sauce.
  2. Put prunes in a food processor or use a stick blender to whizz to a smooth purée. Put sugar and cocoa in a pan with 250ml water, bring to the boil and simmer for 3 mins.
  3. Add remaining cake ingredients and mix well until combined. Spoon into the dish. Pour the sauce over the cake batter - don’t worry, magic happens in the oven and the sauce will sink to the bottom! Bake for 25-30 mins until the cake fells slightly springy to the touch. Remove from oven and leave for 10 mins for the sauce to thicken.
