Rich chocolate self-saucing pud

I am sure this is every kid's favourite pudding. It's that luscious smooth sauce hiding under a rich chocolate sponge and then there's the addition of ice cream or cream to help it slide down with a 10/10 yum factor.


  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • 100 grams butter, chilled and diced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • Chocolate sauce
  • 3½ cups boiling water
  • ½ cup dark rum or coffee liqueur
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa


  1. Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while gathering and preparing the ingredients.
  2. Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  3. Stir in the sugar and make a well in the centre.
  4. Beat the milk, eggs and vanilla essence together and mix into the dry ingredients using a hold spoon to form a stiff batter.
  5. Into the pre-warmed slow cooker, put the boiling water, rum or coffee liqueur, sugar and cocoa and stir to dissolve the cocoa.
  6. Carefully spoon the batter evenly into the slow cooker and cover with the lid.
  7. Cook on high for 1 hour then turn to low for a further 1 hour.
  8. Serve hot with ice cream and cream.

Cooks Tips

- The alcohol will have cooked out of the rum or liqueur, however use only water for an alcohol-free alternative.
