Slow Cooker: Self-Saucing Chocolate Pudding

The other night I tried this new recipe for a chocolate pudding. It is from Allyson Gofton’s Slow, a book of recipes for a slow cooker or crockpot. I’ve adapted it slightly for my own purposes.

Self-Saucing Chocolate Pudding

Self Sauce Choc Pudding

Ingredients:

3 cups of self-raising flour (I only had plain flour, so I added 3 teaspoons of baking powder)

1/4 cup cocoa

100 grams/7 tablespoons/3.5 ounces butter

1 cup sugar

2 cups milk

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

Chocolate sauce:

3 1/2 cups boiling water

1/2 cup dark rum or coffee liqueur (I used Kahlua)

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

Method:

1. Pre-heat your slow cooker on low.

2. Sift the flour and cocoa into the bowl and rub in the butter. (I always grate my butter instead of rubbing it in).

3. Add the sugar and combine.

4. Make a well in the center. Beat the milk, eggs and vanilla and mix into the dry ingredients.

5. Pour the boiling water, the rum/liqueur, sugar and cocoa into the slow cooker. Mix together until incorporated.

6. Spoon the batter into the liquid and cover with lid.

7. Cook on high for one hour then switch to low and cook for another hour.

Shelley’s Notes:

1. This pudding is large and serves eight. There are only two of us so we supplied pudding for the neighbors and everything worked out nicely.

2. We served ours with yoghurt, but cream or ice cream would work just as well.

3. This is excellent comfort food on a cold winter’s night.

4. It was yummy!

5. I’m sorry the photos didn’t turn out as well as I hoped. It was quite late and there was no natural light left.
