READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Agnes 2

Got this recipe from the "essentially food magazine". It's not the best chocolate self-saucing pudding I've had, but it is so quick and great if you have an after-dinner chocolate craving!!!

I had forgotten this popular New Zealand dessert until I had it at a buffet recently and really liked it. My DH is gluten intolerant so I made this 10 minute version with a gluten-free flour mix with an extra teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to compensate for not using self-raising flour. It was quick and delicious and I'll make it again.
