Chocolate Fudge Pudding – Victorian time chocolaty treat

choc dessert

This chocolate fudge pudding is oozing out with sticky chocolate sauce; used to be a very popular dessert reserved only for the aristocracy during the reign of Queen Victoria.  Delicious in every mouthful, you can go for a second helping without a trace of guilt, for it has no heavy cream or a great amount of fat. This is a real treat for kids, served with juicy strawberries on side.

  • Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • Combine flour and cocoa powder and sieve on to the batter.
  • Add Milk, vanilla and a pinch of salt.
  • Mix thoroughly until all come together as a creamy batter.
  • Spoon in to a wide Pyrex /  oven proof dish.

Now make the sauce :choc pour

  • Combine sugar and cocoa in a bowl.
  • Add hot water gradually, mixing continuously until it will appear to be a thin chocolate brown liquid.


  • Now pour the sauce over the pudding batter very slowly, letting it spread across.


  • Cover with a foil, leaving an edge open for steam to escape.


  • Bake 30  – 40 mins.
