Chocolate has a soothing effect so today I thought of introducing you to Chocolate self saucing pudding and the amazing flavor of its chocolate sauce.

On Munatycooking I have baked a dessert that is similar to chocolate self saucing pudding, it is Peach Cobbler, now that is a mouthwatering dessert, and it served with ice cream on the side. The batter separates and creates a delicious vanilla sponge and under it a peach sauce.

In a different bowl, you should mix the chocolate sauce ingredients which are cocoa powder and brown sugar, after it’s mixed, spread evenly over the previously prepared chocolate cake batter. Finally, pour boiling water over both layers and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Now that you have baked chocolate self saucing pudding serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I am sure that you will enjoy this dessert, but there is one thing though. Make sure to use a good quality cocoa powder which is used for baking.
