Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350F (180C). In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter and 1/2 c sugar until just liquid. Remove from heat. Crack in the egg and stir through, sift over the flour, salt and 4 tsp cocoa, fold in with a spatula, stir in milk.
  2. Butter a 6-cup (8-cup if you double the sauce) ovenproof pudding bowl, pour in the pudding. (to be honest, I never bother with the buttering).
  3. For the sauce, sieve the 4 tsp cocoa and 1/3 c sugar together, stir through until it's mixed. Then sieve it evenly over the top of the pudding. Pour the hot water over the pudding, over the back of a spoon.
  4. Cook in the centre of the oven for 35 mins or until the pudding has risen and is spongey. Serve with cream or ice-cream.
