Chocolate Lava Pudding

This is a lot different from everything else I’ve done, and it’s also one of the funnest recipes I’ve found. Unfortunately, being fun doesn’t make it great. I mean, it was nice, especially on the second day for some reason, but it wasn’t *Great*. The first indicator that maybe it wasn’t going to be amazing was when it was about 10 minutes from being done and you could smell what seemed like chocolate burning, it wasn’t, and the closer it got to being done the stronger that smell got stronger. But eh, its just a smell, I’m sure its fine. The first small thing I noticed is that it didn’t exactly looked like I thought it would, it more closely resembled a fresh tarmac road on which someone threw a burnt brownie on top, kinda smelled like it too. To be fair it didn’t taste like it, I’d give the tarmac brownie a 6.8/10.

Chocolate Lava Pudding

You’ll need:

  • 160g Caster sugar
  • 160g Self raising flour
  • 1.5/2tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 30g Butter, melted
  • 125ml Milk
  • 2-3tsp Vanilla extract
  • 150g Dark soft brown sugar
  • 3-4tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 450ml Hot water

Method:

1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and cocoa powder. Add in the milk and vanilla and mix a bit, then add the butter a bit at a time while mixing, mix until smooth. My stupid self decided that putting the butter in the jug with the milk and vanilla was a good idea, as soon as i started pour the butter in the realisation hit me… liquid butter.. cold milk… i had already poured half of the butter in by this point so i defeatedly poured the rest in, allowing it to sink in just how stupid i am as the fully cooled, lumpy butter floated to the surface, just to taunt me. Yeah so dont do that, not a good idea 2/10 wouldn’t recommend. (I did fish out and re melt the butter).

2.  Preheat oven to gas mark 5/190*C/375*F. Butter a large glass casserole dish (i don’t think it has to be glass, i think its just for *aesthetic*).  Pour the mixture into the dish.

3. In a seperate bowl, mix the brown sugar and cocoa power, getting as many lumps out as possible. Spoon it all out on top of the mixture in the dish, spread evenly. Using a large spoon to break the stream (so it doesnt go straight through the sugar and into the chocolate mixture), pour all the water on top. Carefully move to the oven and bake for about 50 minutes. And bam, you is done.
