I've been hoping to post more recipes on my blog & keep forgetting to have my camera handy whenever I'm cooking. One reason I want them on here is that I want somewhere that my sisters & then children can find these recipes that I've found useful (since many are family favourites passed down from Mum or Granny). Another reason is that I started my handwritten recipe book almost 20 years ago & the writing is getting faded in my old favourites. While I can still make it out, I thought why not type it out!
Well this one is one of those old favourites that I fall back on again & again - one reason is that I always have the ingredients in the cupboard - the other is it's quick to put together & you can cook it while eating the main course!
Mum's Chocolate Fudge Sauce Pudding:
Ingredients: 1 cup self raising flour; 180g sugar; 2 tablespoons(tbs) cocoa; 1/2 cup milk; 2 tbs melted butter;
SAUCE: 1 cup brown sugar; 2 tbs cocoa; 420mls very hot water (I just boil the kettle)
* Mix flour, cocoa & sugar. Stir in milk & melted butter.
* Into the bottom of a casserole dish place sauce ingredients & gently stir to mix well.
* Onto sauce place cake mixture - even out in dish.
* Bake in a moderate oven for 45 mins.
Serve with Cream or Vanilla ice cream.
This batch I made for a group of people helping with the church manse renovations (thus the lack of 'just served' picture). I doubled this mixture & it fed 10 easily (with the men having enormous second servings) - I would say at least 15 could have easily had it. It was a little rich as the cute little men (who constantly remind me are "not babies") in charge of putting in the cocoa decided to heap the spoon each time - oh well it's great to have my "helpers"!! Still delicious though!
I hope you enjoy!
