Ready In:
3hrs 5mins




  • Preheat slow cooker for 20 minutes on high.
  • Grease the slow cooker bowl (would recommend if using butter to put on wax paper or baking/parchment paper to do).
  • In a separate bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients mixing or whisking well together.
  • Sift brown sugar and extra cocoa powder over mixture.
  • Using a spoon, gently and evenly pour the boiling water over the mixture.
  • Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 hours, or until centre is firm (I think cooking time could vary depending on the size of your crock pot/slow cooker - mine is a 6L oval shaped cooker and this is the time they recommend).
  • Serve with sifted icing sugar and ice cream or cream.

    This was a fantastic dessert, though I used low-fat milk, and the cooking time in my cooker was 3 1/2 hours. Probably different sizes, but it did not burn. This came together real well. I was going to add some chocolate chips to this, but the recipe looked fine as is I for one like chocolate pudding, the DS let hers cool in the fridge, and I had mine while still warm. They were both good either way. Tagged and made for PRMR. Thanks Pat for a nice dessert.<br/>. Forgot to mention served with some vanilla ice cream.

    This is a great recipe and very easy to make, it has worked perfectly every time I have made it. Mind you I am one of those cooks who is quite liberal with certain elements, for example 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder becomes 2 heaped tablespoons, and if I don't have enough cocoa powder but I do have cooking chocolate, I melt the cooking chocolate and add that instead to substitute. As an experiment for a birthday dessert that has been requested I altered the recipe a little last night to get a chocolate mint self saucing pudding. So all I did that was different, apparent from 2 heaped tablespoons of cocoa powder, was to add 2 teaspoons of peppermint essence and 2 tablespoons of Creme de Menthe liquor to the batter. Then when pouring over the hot water I changed the ratio to about 2 cups boiling water and 1/2 cup of Creme de Menthe liquor. End result - delicious, worked perfectly.

    The pudding tasted ok but i dont know if id done anything wrong, though i follwed the recipe step by step. it wasnt very chocolatey and the sauce was just gloopy. It was like jelly. Over all, not the nicest thing ive ever made


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
