It is so cold here at the moment I felt it would be almost criminal not to bake a nice hot pudding for dessert tonight.
My Grandmother gave me this recipe and it has been very well used.
1 cup self raising flour 1 teaspoon vanilla essence or extract
2 tablespoons cocoa 3/4 cup brown sugar
30 grams melted butter 1/4 cup cocoa (extra)
1/2 teaspoon of salt 1 & 3/4 cups of hot water
1/2 cup of milk
3/4 cup sugar
Sift flour, salt and cocoa. Add sugar. Stir in milk, vanilla and melted butter, mix or beat together until smooth. Spread into a casserole dish.
Sprinkle brown sugar and extra cocoa on top of mixture. Pour hot water on gently.
Bake at 180 degrees (C) for 45 - 55 minutes.
Serve with cream, icecream or both!
