Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

Last night a few of our friends came around to watch State of Origin. My team lost so we won't talk anymore of that. What we will talk about is the delicious self saucing chocolate pudding that I made for dessert. Not exactly footy food but a great winter dessert.


I only managed to get a photo of them straight out of the oven before my camera died. I ended up serving them with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a scoop of ice cream. This was my first time making a self saucing pudding and I found it a bit strange putting all the water on top. I didn't think they would work but they did.
