Rich Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

Easy come easy go. That's how this pudding operates. Fond memories are tucked away of my mother whipping this decadent treat in a matter of moments only to be scuffed down in the blink of an eye.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time:      40 minutes
Ingredients:        Pudding 
                        1 cup of self-raising flour
                        3 tblspns of Dutch cocoa
                        1/2 cup of brown sugar
                        80grams of melted butter
                        1/2 cup of milk
                        1 egg
                              3/4 cup of brown sugar
                        2 tblspns of cocoa powder
                        1 and 1/4 cups of boiling water

Sift flour and cocoa into a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Combine melted butter, milk and egg whilst slowly adding it to the flour mixture. Whisk until well combined. Spoon into a greased deep baking deep. Combine excess brown sugar and cocoa then sprinkle evenly over the pudding. Gently pour boiling water over pudding using the back of a spoon. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade or until pudding bounces back after being pressed.
