Chocolate - Up & Over Pud
Gorgeous rich chocolate sponge with a thick fudgey-nutty sauce.
Rather rich, so serves 6 with a thick cream or ice cream accompaniment
75g/3oz Sr Flour, 1 rounded TBSP Cocoa, 125g/4oz butter (softened),125/4oz granulated sugar, 2 eggs
1 Rounded TBSP Cocoa ,50g/ 2oz chopped nuts (of your choice),125g/4oz Demerara Sugar
300ml / 1/2 pint of strong black coffee (4 good tsp of instant)
Butter a 1.2 - 2pint capacitiy oven proof dish
Sieve flour, cocoa powder, into a bowl with the other pudding ingredients, This Pud is mixed by the "all-in-one" method
Mix and beat well for 2 mins until you have a smooth mix.
Tip this mix into the greased bowl and level the top.
Now for the topping and sauce:
Mix cocoa, nuts and 50g/2 oz sugar together and sprinkle on top of the Pud. You can leave this now at this stage until you are ready to cook the pudding.
Next Stage : make up the coffee with the remainding 50g/2oz sugar, and pour over the pudding.
Bake in a moderate oven gas 4, 350f, 180C for around 40/45 mins....up to an hour depending on your oven.
During the cooking the sponge will rise up and over the fudge sauce to create a wondeful fudge sauce under the pudding.
Allow to cool slightly and then place a large plate on to top of the pudding and invert (to catch all that lovely sauce) and serve with thick cream or lovely Vanilla Ice Cream.........Bon Appetit
