Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

A recipe my mum gave me when I left home which I rediscovered over the weekend. Not sure of its origin - possibly Edmonds Cookbook - but a good, quick microwave pudding that my kids love. Great on cold days.

Works beautifully for me. Also a recipe my mum used, but never attempted in microwave (until now!). Her recipe was from Edmonds. Beautiful with frozen raspberries stirred through the batter just prior to cooking.
