YUM! This is so delicious, my whole family loved it - especially my hubby & my 7 year old (the chocoholics of the family!). It is bitterly cold here at the moment, and this made the perfect warming comfort food for dessert tonight! It was simple and cheap (I already had ALL of the ingredients in my pantry), and a definate winner. I divided the mixture between 6 individual ceramic pots, and cooked them for around 20 minutes. Another amazing recipe, thanks Jan! [Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap]
Easy to make & done with all pantry ingredients, went well as a dessert with our home made soup, comfort food...mmmmm!
I'm sorry but this just didn't turn out for me. I'm not quite sure what went wrong - followed it exactly. The pudding/cake look nothing like the ones in the pictures, it was a flat, dense sheet and the whole thing was a bit watery still. The chocolate taste was definitely there though and it looked beautiful! I'm gonna try this one again, I just know it has promise!
