Method

  1. Butter a 2-litre baking dish and heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the kettle on. Put the flour, caster sugar, 50g cocoa, baking powder, orange zest and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together the orange juice and any pulp left in the juicer, the eggs, melted butter and milk, then pour onto the dry ingredients and mix together until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chunks and scrape everything into the baking dish.
  2. Mix 300ml boiling water from the kettle with the sugar and cocoa for the sauce, then pour this all over the pudding batter – don’t worry, it will look very strange at this stage! Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 30 mins until the surface looks firm, risen and crisp. As you scoop spoonfuls into serving bowls, you should find a glossy, rich chocolate sauce underneath the sponge. Eat immediately with vanilla ice cream or single cream.

Yum! I was worried trying something new for a dinner party, but it turned out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly including cooking time and using orange chocolate. The only alteration I made was to use less sugar for the sauce (150g), as advised in other comments, and I thought the sweetness was about right. It certainly didn't need to be any sweeter. I will definitely be making this again as a good sized family pudding.

Gorgeous. Bit of a spur of the moment thing, so made it with Demerara sugars and plain chocolate but still worked well. As others have said, huge quantities.

Great recipe. I made it in the slow cooker as the tip suggested and it worked brilliantly. The sponge isn't particularly special but the sauce is fab and makes the dish very rich. We got nine generous portions out of this pud; I reheated it twice in the slow cooker and it was just as good every time. This is definitely one to repeat!

Om nom nom this was lovely and enjoyed by the whole family. I used a Terry's milk chocolate orange and that worked well.

The only 'issue' we had was that it's super rich and HUGE. We're hearty eaters but this would serve 12, not 8. We have so much left over, I hope it can be revived tomorrow. Took under 30mins to cook in a large rectangular lasagne dish. Will make again!

I made this sinfully dark chocolate self saucing pudding. It came out well and was a super hit with the family. Went down like a storm. I halved the recipe and still there was more than sufficient for the 4 of us. As was mentioned in the earlier comments, I reduced the amount of sugar. I used milk chocolate instead of the orange dark chocolate as I did not have orange chocolate. But it came out perfect. Will definitely be making it again.

Made this sinfully, chocolatey pudding. I halved the ingredients and still it was more than sufficient for a second helping for the 4 of us. Used milk chocolate instead of the orange chocolate. Though it was only half the quantity it took about 28-30 mins for the pudding to be ready. As was mentioned in a few of the earlier comments, I reduced the quantity of sugar. It was absolutely delicious and quite simple to make. Was a hit with the husband. Will definitely make it again.

I do like this recipe a lot, what makes this recipe is the AMAZING chocolate orange sauce, the sponge is nothing special.

Very easy and tasty, but it took a lot longer to cook than stated (about an hour!) and the sauce was rather runny. Also if you aren't using orange chocolate in it, you might want to use 2 oranges as the orange flavour didn't stand out as much as it could have.

Love this pudding. So quick to throw together and cook. I have it weighed out and put it in the oven while we eat our main course - perfect timing. Love Aldi`s orange and almond chocolate in this. (It comes in 5 x 25g bars, so a sneaky bar left over for the chef`s treat)

A very delicious and comforting pudding, especially on a cold winter's night. Mmmm.

Fabulously easy but impressive pudding? The end result is magic! I halved the recipe and added orange essence to the sauce. Definitely make again!

This was excellent.
But it did take more like 40 minutes to cook in my oven.
I was a little disappointed that the sauce wasn't thicker.

This was extremely nice, and enjoyed by everyone...and then next morning I found the butter in the microwave! How different would it have tasted if I'd remembered to add it? Seemed very spongy without...

Puzzled of Ipswich!

Scrummy Pud! Looking forward to making it again. All the family loved it - huge portions though, will half the quantities next time.

Also, it definately does serve 8, easily! I would say even more like 10 because some people won't eat as much as it is rich.

bakergirl89's picture

This was amazing, although we had it after a HUGE roast dinner, so no one could eat much and it ruined it a bit - it's very rich so would advise having it after a slightly lighter meal!
Also Next time I'd make the sauce with a bit less sugar as it was VERY sweet...
But overall it was lovely. Next time I'll make it with a mix of dark chocolate and plain milk chocolate as choc orange is a bit sickly.

The best pudding I've ever made and if I say myself, the best ever. Next time will use less sugar as too sweet. Thanks for such a fab and easy recipe
