Matt Preston's self-saucing chocolate pudding
"When I arrived in Australia over 20 years ago I was blown away with this country’s love of a good chocolate pudding. Sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce and the rightfully venerated lemon delicious! That same self-sauciness blesses this pudding that’s based on a recipe found in a vintage cookbook from Victoria." - Matt Preston
Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding
Recipe video above. A classic chocolate self saucing pudding! One batter magically transforms into a moist chocolate cake AND a chocolate sauce. The sauce has the consistency of maple syrup - never watery, never gluggy. This is easy and fast to make. Serve it up straight away otherwise the sauce gets absorbed into the cake!

“Take your time and make the sauce in advance, then reheat it later to pour over the pudding.” - This is an edited extract from Now for Something Sweet by the Monday Morning Cooking Club (Harper Collins, $49.99).
