Was amazing followed recipe and easy to make, was so moist better than any self saucing pudding I’ve ever made in the oven!! Took 2 hours in my 5.5l slow cooker will make again!!

I’ve made this a few times and we LOVE IT! My mum had asked me to make it for her today but I only have self raising flour, can I use that instead of plain flour and baking powder?

Our family love it, easy on the pocket for a delicious pudd, moist sauce is just right, only pudd I get requested for from the grandkids
February 20, 2019
This is such a nice recipe, but way too sweet! I halve the sugar, and use 3 cups of water for the sauce (personal preference for a little less sauce).

Hello does this go in a basin/bowl or straight into the slow cooker?
July 23, 2018
I normally cook my pudding in the oven but no more! The slow cooker made it so easy and it was delicious. definately recommend
July 22, 2018
Love this recipe, have used custard powder instead of cocoa, and used low gi sugar with less brown sugar.

Best pudding I’ve ever tasted. Delicious

Best self saucing pudding I’ve ever had! So moist and gooey. I added a few cubes of crunchie chocolate. Definitely making this again!

So yummy. Was a huge hit.
Absolutely loved this! I made this in my 5.5L Slow Cooker and it was perfect. We served it with some ice cream for 2 Adults & 6 Kids with leftovers 😃
So yumm, makes so much. Was great, had left overs.

Made this lastnight, I’m not the greatest of cooks but this was soooo easy to make and turned out amazing!! My kids absolutely loved it and want more, were looking forward to making more things in our slow cooker 🙂

1 hour and added crushed hazelnuts
March 18, 2018
Very delicious. Made it for the first time tonight. My 3 year old licked her bowl cleaned :). Makes a generous amount.

Hi, just wondering if anyone has successfully doubled this recipe? Needing to cook for 10 people. Thanks in advance!
July 19, 2017
Has anyone successfully doubled this recipe? If so, did cooking times vary? Will need to feed 10 people. Thanks in advance!

Halved the recipe and used the 3.5ltr cooker. Cooked for 2.5 hours. Fed 3 adults and 3 littlies. Very much like my microwave recipe and is just as delicious. I’m sure it will be just as much a favourite.
June 17, 2017
I made this tonight and it is yum!
I only had 100% cocoa at home so mine was not really sweet but does have a lovely creamy flavor and I served it with vanilla ice cream to add sweetness.
I also only cooked mine for 1.5 hours and it is velvety soft!
Makes quite a big serve so would be great for a dinner party dessert
June 4, 2017
Made this and added 4tblspn of desiccated coconut in topping as I love love love chocolate and coconut together
Was perfect and delicious nom nom
May 20, 2017
That’s right 🙂
Just checking why this recipes has no eggs in it? Seems odd just about to try it for the first time 🙂
March 25, 2017
Made this last night, glad I checked it s at 1 hour and 40 minutes it was well and truly cooked. The cake portion was very dry, and could do with more sauce but the flavour was nice.
March 20, 2017
Please help I followed the recipe and I just went and checked it and it’s a bit watery
January 22, 2017
Just Awesome, everyone loved it and asked if I could do it again. I did reduce the sugar. Thankyou great recipe. 😊
December 21, 2016
Easy to follow recipe and will be making it again. I thought there may have been too much sauce but it thickened once cooled and it’s lovely to eat hot or cold so thanks for the rest open I’m so glad I tried it out
December 4, 2016
You can substitute the cocoa powder for vanilla custard if you choose to have a different flavour
July 13, 2016
This is a delicious, big, rich and saucy dessert. I halved the brown sugar and it was a little too salty so I’m going to half that when I make it again tonight. So yummy.
June 27, 2016
I made this tonight and it was really yummy. Made it exactly as the recipe states and it made heaps and fed 4 adults and 2 kids easily with leftovers. Served it with ice cream and it was a massive hit ? Just note it is very rich ?
June 26, 2016
Absolutely delicious! I did only use 1 & 1/2 cups of brown sugar and didn’t miss it at all! It makes a lot, easily feeds 6-8 very generous serves! Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow!
June 23, 2016
This recipe is a massive hit in our house!!
Easily feeds 5.
The kids ask for it every Sunday evening.
June 22, 2016
Its was delish. I followed the recipe. It was yummy.
June 19, 2016
1st time making this tonight n omg it was sooooooo good!!! I cheated though, I used a chocolate cake mix that I had in the cupboard, made it up according to the directions on the back of the pack, then I went by the sauce recipe from this but cut the sugar content down, I used half a cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa n 2 cups of boiling water n was just perfect (Y)
June 13, 2016
Very yummy! I was worried about the 5 cups of boiled water for the sauce (seemed a lot!) but it was perfect! Very gooey and saucy but not too rich. Easily serves 6 ppl with custard on the side ?
June 4, 2016
Hi, just checking is 5 cups of boiling water correct for the sauce? (Seems like a lot!)
May 14, 2016
I halved the recipe as I was only making it for 2 and cooking time worked out to be about 2 hours.
May 7, 2016
This is a great recipe that’s not as sweet as it sounds. You end up with a soft gooey cake and slightly thick chocolate sauce. The sauce/cake ratio is a little out in my opinion and you can easily get away with 2 cups of boiling water rather than 3 and still have plenty. After eating the whole cake with sauce for each person we still have heaps of sauce left over.
I successfully cooked this recipe in my 3.5L with no issues at all too. I just had to extend the cooking time to 3.5hrs and it turned out perfectly. We will definitely make it again and recommend it to anyone who loves this type of dessert.
May 6, 2016
This recipe is delicious however the cake/sauce ratio is out. You can successfully use 1.5/2 cups of boiling water (with adjusted cocoa powder) and still have heaps of sauce.
I also made this in my 3.5L with no issues at all, the only difference is I had to cook it for 3.5hrs instead of 2.5.
April 30, 2016
thanks for the cup and spoon measurements 🙂
April 3, 2016
Ill be adding smashed banana to the cake bit so its going to be chocolate banana selfsaucing pudding ☺
March 19, 2016
A must for the family cook book
January 31, 2016
this is soooo good! 🙂
January 18, 2016
This is THE best self saucing pudding recipe. Not only is it great in the slow cooker (have made it several times!), but at the weekend, I halved the recipe, and made it in the oven – 175 degC for 35-40 minutes.
