1 cup all-purpose flour (plain flour)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence or extract
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick/1 oz./28g) butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 dessert spoon (2 teaspoons/10 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups boiling water
For the Pudding:
Sift together the flour, baking powder and cocoa and add the sugar and salt. Add the milk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Pour into a large greased glass baking bowl or casserole dish.
For the Sauce:
Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the pudding batter in the bowl. Bake pudding at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 45 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the pudding comes out clean. Serve with plenty of the sauce at the bottom and a good scoop of ice cream.
Makes 6-8 servings.
