The Great British Pudding Challenge - Chocolate Pudding

This month for “The Great British Pudding Challenge”, I picked up the gauntlet and knuckled down into making my chocolate steamed pudding. I wasn’t sure at first if I was serving this pudding with custard or chocolate sauce. I think the chocoholic in me got the better, and I made a glossy chocolate sauce. The recipe for the chocolate sponge pudding, which is posted on my Blog [link here], was straightforward, but I added another tablespoon of milk to make the mixture a little slacker. I used Green & Blacks milk chocolate to add into the sponge mixture, I’m quite a fan of their chocolate :)

I am SO looking forward to viewing the entries from fellow Bloggers.

Happy challenge to everyone :)

Recipe for the pudding is on this [link here], should it tempt anyone else to join in, the more the merrier and you’d be very welcome to take the challenge too.

Chocolate sauce

200g of milk chocolate
150ml double cream
2 tsp camp coffee, or whatever coffee you wish
1 tbsp Golden syrup
Knob of butter


In a saucepan add all the ingredients except the butter and melt very gently on a very low heat on the stove, stirring all the time. When the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth add the knob of butter stirring it in.

Serve the chocolate sauce while still warm over the chocolate sponge pudding.

Hello Rosie,

I finally got around to cooking the pudding - delicious. Though mine didn't turn out of the moulds too well. They did taste good though and that is the main thing!

Oooh, this sure looks wonderful! Rosie, have you thought about entering one of your chocolate desserts for the death by chocolate contest? you really should, if you haven't yet!

Rosie said...

Hi Pixie, do you know, I haven't thought of entering for the death by chocolate contest. I did enter this chocolate pudding & sauce into the Hotel Chocolat and won chocolates and their book, which was such an honour and surprise to win! :D
