You may or may not be pleased to know that these saucy little numbers are also ridiculously easy and quick to make. New York-based Australian artist Linda Saffiotti woos us with her elegant and seductive watercolour, revealing the deeply gooey, chocolately nature of this irresistible dessert.

Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

  • Puddings
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2-3/4 cup 150g brown sugar
  • 80g butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons cooca

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa

Preheat oven to 170•c. Grease 6 x 1 cup capacity ramekins.

Sift together flour, cocoa and sugar. In a separate large mixing bowl whisk together egg, milk and melted butter. Gradually add flour mixture into the wet mixture, stirring gently with a spoon until just combined.

Spoon mixture into greased ramekins, then carefully pour sauce over the batter over the back of a large metal spoon.

Bake puddings for 15-20 minutes, then aside for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken up.

Team with some ice cream or cream, or dust with icing sugar and get stuck in!
