Sticky Chocolate Pudding
Sticky Chocolate Pudding is a classic comforting dessert. A single mixture works a little magic as it bakes, creating a soft sponge layer on top with a rich chocolate sauce below. Like all classics, there are as many recipes for self-saucing puddings as there are cooks. Exposure on television by Nigella Lawson has revived interest in many classic recipes including Sticky Chocolate Pudding.
We only eat puddings at the weekend and I try to make something on Saturday that will do for Sunday as well. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make but it had to be something messy and sticky (more of this later in the week) so sugar was going to feature and I had a big bar of dark chocolate and a new tub of Green and Blacks Cocoa powder. Some rooting around in the recipe books and I found Nigella Lawson’s Sticky Chocolate Pudding from ‘How to Eat’.
What happens is that the sponge rises to the top and you have a lovely chocolate sauce in the bottom of the dish.
On Saturday I served it with soured cream. I then divided the remaining pudding into ramekins and on Sunday reheated it in the microwave and served with ice-cream.
I would thoroughly recommend this pud. You get between 6-9 servings, depending on how greedy you are!
