As a kid growing up we always finished our meal with a dessert or pudding. Now it’s not nearly as often, but desserts in any shape or form are still always very much enjoyed. A chocolate self saucing pudding such as this one was a favorite on a  cold winter’s night (yes, even with the ice-cream).


  • 1 cup gluten-free self-raising flour (I use White Wings or Orgran Gluten Free)
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted ( I used Nestle Baking Cocoa)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or essence
  • 30g butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups boiling water
  • Cream or Ice cream


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
  2. Lightly grease an 8 cup-capacity ovenproof dish.
  3. Combine flour, caster sugar and 2 tablespoons cocoa in a bowl.
  4. Add milk, vanilla and butter. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Smooth top
  6. Combine brown sugar and remaining cocoa in a small bowl.
  7. Sift sugar mixture over flour mixture.
  8. Pour boiling water over the back of a large metal spoon to cover sugar mixture.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted around the edge of pudding comes out clean.
  10. Serve with cream or ice cream
