Mum's Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

I'm very lazy when it comes to desserts.  I can whip up a ten dish Chinese meal in a flash, but the thought of mucking about with measuring cups and decorating tools makes me run and duck for cover. 

Mum's chocolate self-saucing pudding however is a different story.  It's super easy to prepare and is one of those foods that envelop you in a big chocolaty warm hug with every bite.  And we all know that chocolaty hugs are the best hugs.

Mum's Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding


2 tbsp melted vegan margarine
½ cup soy milk, warmed
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cocoa
½ tsp salt

2 tbsp dessicated coconut
½ cup sugar
2 tsp cocoa


Mix the dry ingredients of the base with the melted margarine and warm soy milk.

Spread the base evenly into the bottom of a ceramic dish.

Mix the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the pudding base.

Pour over two cups of hot water and bake at 180°C for 50 minutes.

To serve, scoop out a big chunk and lather it in runny soy cream.  Mmmmmmm.


  1. Yum. Gonna try it this week. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. It's super gooey and stodgy - perhaps not the best word to describe a desert, but I just love it that way - hope you do too!
