Chocolate Steamed Pudding
With chocolate sauce and raspberries

Just the thing for a quick mid-week pudding.


60g butter
60g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
85g self raising flour
2tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp milk

For the sauce

100g dark chocolate
1 tbsp golden syrup
hot water to mix

Lightly grease the ramekins with some of the butter. Then put the remaining butter, sugar, eggs, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a large bowl and beat until smooth. Add enough milk to give a dropping consistency.

Spoon the mixture into the ramekins and smooth the surface. Cover with greased greaseproof paper and foil both pleated in the middle.

Put the ramekins into a steamer. Cover and steam for 30 minutes. Turn the pudding out onto a warmed plate and serve hot.

To make the chocolate sauce

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over barely simmering water and add the syrup. Add enough hot water to make a sauce consistency.

Serve topped with fresh raspberries.
