Chocolate Surprise Pudding

It’s Friday evening, just before 8 ‘o clock.  My husband’s boys are visiting us for a couple of days.  All 8 of us, ie. his 2, my 3 and the two of us plus a friend of my daughter’s, have been sitting around the dining room table for the past 2 hours.  Sybe (my husband) shared stories from his youth.  He told the kids how his best friend of 15 years had kissed his girlfriend on his 21st birthday party.  How he shot a hole through another friends cheek  with a pellet gun.  The stories went on and on and the kids couldn’t get enough.

I kept dinner simple, tasty and fresh.  We had pork bangers with loads of salad on rolls and to finish it off  I made a delicious warm chocolate pudding from a little square  book  I found in one of our local shops this afternoon.  The book is called Divine Chocolate..  It won’t be fair if I don’t thank Daniel at this stage for all his help.  I could not have done it without him!

I chose the simplest looking, easiest sounding recipe in the book;  “Chocolate Surprise Pudding”.  And guess what?  I will be making it again tomorrow!

Chocolate Surprise

You Need (4 servings):

  • 100g unsalted butter

  • 100g plain chocolate (or more if you like!)

  • 50g plain flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 eggs

  • 50g castor sugar

  • I did double these quantities… why not!  More is More!

What you do:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

  • Melt butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of hot, not boiling water.  Stir occasionally.

  • Crease a medium sized oven dish.

  • Whisk together the eggs, sugar and flour for 2 min with an electric whisk until pale and creamy.  This is where Daniel comes in as I do not mix electrically, but by hand.

  • Whisk in chocolate mixture.

  • Pour into the oven dish.

  • Bake for approximately 30 min until the pudding is brown.

  • Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, mixed berries or fresh cream.

  • Remember to ask for seconds!

At this stage all the kids are running around in he house, playing fighting games so,  perhaps it’s a better idea to serve this pudding earlier in the day!

    I don’t think I’ve graduated past instant pudding…so as delicious as that looks…I probably shouldn’t attempt it.

  2. This looks seriously amazing… I really hope the chocolate in the middle is the surprise…

  3. I love lava cakes. This looks scrumptious!
