{self-saucing chocolate pudding in hermie}

So, I've made the sticky date pudding to death now and the family is wanting something else. Firstly, chocolate comes to mind. Who doesn't like chocolate? I've been looking through my recipe books and have come across one such recipe that ticks all the boxes. 
Easy? Yes. 
Quick? Yes. 
Chocolate? Yes. 
Yummy? Yes...

The recipe is from the "Australian Gourmet Traveller - Chocolate" book and I have tweaked and converted it to be made in the Thermomix. It's a great recipe that can be made with standard pantry and fridge ingredients. I don't find it too chocolately and for those chocoholics out there, you could make it richer by adding pieces of chocolate throughout the mixture before baking in the oven.

80 grams butter, softened
150 grams self raising flour
15 grams cocoa + 15 grams cocoa
70 grams raw caster sugar
125 grams milk
1 egg
100 grams brown sugar
300 grams hot water

extra butter to grease ovenproof dish
pouring cream to serve

1. Pre-heat oven to 170C.
2. Place brown sugar and 1 lot of cocoa in TM bowl. Mix closed lid position/ 2-3 times turbo button. Place aside for later.
3. Mill sugar 3 secs/ speed 9.
4. Add flour and other lot of cocoa. Mix closed lid position/ 2-3 times turbo button.
5. Add egg, butter and milk. Mix 5 secs/ speed 5.
6. Spoon into dish. Sprinkle over reserved sugar and cocoa mixture.
7. Gradually pour over the hot water , over the back of a spoon, onto pudding.
8. Cook in oven for 40 minutes or until sponge top is cooked.
9. Serve immediately with a good amount of cream.

Serves 4-6 depending on how greedy you are :-)

Bon Appetit xx

Tips: If you want to make this a mocha pudding, add a double shot of coffee at step 7 to infuse the chocolate sauce.
