Mocha Self-Saucing Pudding


There is a dish for every season.

Summer means salads

Autumn means stews and pies

Spring means roast spring lamb and risottos

Winter…

calls for warm curries, casseroles and WARM CHOCOLATE PUDDING!

I wasn’t a fan of warm desserts till recently. I’m the ice-kachang, ice-cream, cold fruits kinda of girl. But then I discovered the beauty of chocolaty delights. Saucy chocolaty delights.

Think cold winter nights, nice comfy sofa, episodes of Gray’s Anatomy or Private Practice (one after another of course), warm blanket and a sweet bowl of warm chocolate pudding. ahhh..bliss.


Mocha Self-Saucing Pudding (Serves 2)
1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup of castor sugar
1 tbsp of dark cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
23 grams of melted butter
1 tbsp instant espresso
1 egg
extra cocoa powder for dusting

Topping
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tbsp dark cocoa powder
120ml of boiling water
2 tbsp of instant espresso coffee powder

1) Preheat oven to 180C. Sieve flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cocoa and cinnamon in a bowl. Add sugar and mix well.

2) Place butter, egg and coffee powder in a jug and whisk to combine. Slowly combine wet and dry mixture together. Spoon mixture into 2 ramakins.

3) Combine brown sugar and cocoa in a small bowl. Sprinkle the top of the pudding with the mixture. Then mix the coffee powder and boilng water till coffee dissolves. Carefully pour the coffee mixture around the edges of the pudding.

4) Bake pudding for 20 minutes till firm. Dust the top of the pudding with cocoa and serve hot with ice-cream or cream.

PS-I dont think there are any real rules about seasons and food and I confess to eating salads in winter and curries in summer… however, seasonal produce and the cold weather does make a girl crave for different sorts of food.

pps. This was taken from an old issue of Better Homes and Gardens. Their recipes rock!

  1. Ooh! I thought it was pulut hitam from the first pic. I agree with you though, warm desserts can be fun too! I just need an air-conditioned room to eat it in, given our hot tropical climate… 😛
