I took the tip from Baked by Belle & added cocoa to the batter (What else could a real chocoholic to do, anyway!) & it was just right! The combo of chocolate & orange is always great, & THIS PUDDING IS OUTSTANDING! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
So divine! I added a couple of heaped tablespoons of cocoa to the batter to make it extra chocy. I cooked it for just under 25 mins at a temperature slightly less than the recipe suggested & found it achieved the right self-saucing pudding consistency.
YUM! Was this ever easy to put together! I used Zaar's sub for self raising flour (1 cup flour plus 1 tps baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp baking soda). For the sauce I only used 1/4 cup of sugar because 1/2 cup seemed like way too much. Turned out great!
I made as written, and thought the "cake" part was very good,very "orangey", but the sauce needs more chocolate flavor. 2 teas. cocoa powder isn't enough for me. I would add about 1/8 cup, at least, next time. Maybe I'll take the advice of a couple of others, and mix cocoa into the cake batter. I will make this again, though.
These directions need to be written more clearly.
This was really nice, but I found this to be more cake-like than pudding-like. The sauce on the bottom was a really nice touch.
