Chocolate sauce pudding in the microwave

April 12, 2009 | Filed under Dessert

This easy pudding has long been a family favourite, now even easier and now ready a lot quicker in the microwave.  Everyone loves the rich sauce that forms during cooking.

 Ingredients

Base mixture

1 cup flour
2-3 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ cup sugar
½ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons cooking oil

Topping

½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1½ cups boiling water

 

Method

  1. Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into a mixing bowl
  2. Add sugar
  3. Stir in milk, vanilla essence and oil and mix.
  4. Grease the bottom of a 20×20 cm or 23×18 cm baking dish with a little cooking oil
  5. Spread the mixture into the greased dish
  6. Sprinkle the 2nd measure of sugar and cocoa over the base mixture
  7. Gently pour the boiling water over the topping
  8. Bake for 10 minutes in the microwave on 50% power.

During baking the dough rises to the top and the sauce forms at the bottom. be sure to use a baking dish large enough to cope with the mixture rising and bubbling or you might have a messy microwave to clean up afterwards.

To serve, use a spoon to cut into the cooked mixture and turn on to a serving plate then spoon the sauce over each serving.
