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.

Really tasty! My oven broke down near the end of cooking so was a bit soft in the middle however It was still a real treat! Though it's a BIG pudding, probably better for a party than just me and my husband!

This pudding sounds just what I`m looking for to take to a Halloween party, for grown ups and children. Like the comments about the large quantity it makes!!

So easy to make - did it while the veg for Sunday lunch was cooking! I'll definitely add more orange zest (and maybe a splash of cointreau) next time and didn't think it was orangey enough but delicious none the less.

Ca you use dark brown sugar instead of light muscovado??

Amazed I could make this in my slow cooker (saves electricity if putting the main oven on just to cook a pud). Tastes wonderful and extremely rich and chocolatey, lasted for two nights for 5 of us so double the treat!

Will certainly be making a pud in the slow cooker again, possibly the treacle sponge next! Thank you Good Food for giving me new ideas.

Dangerously delicious! Avoided being over-sweet by using plain dark chocolate chunks (not milky or extra orange).

Oh my god, this is chocolate heaven!! Went down a treat at a recent dinner party. Easy to make and I was able to prepare a few hours in advance up to the pouring the boiling water mixture on stage. We had some left over (amazingly!) and ate it cold the next day - just as delicious! A definite keeper in my recipe collection.

Very easy to make and lovely and light although I expected more sauce. I'd be interested in how I could make a version with cherries - any ideas?

Loved it. Didn't have orange chocolate so used milk but it was still great. Will try orange next time.

This was deeeeeelicious! I made this for a valentines dinner. I personally think it is very rich and you don't need alot of it, but it is so easy to make and very yummy!

This was sooo easy And sooo Very tasty, even though i forgot to add the cocoa and muscavado sugar to the water (too much on the mind) it didn't seem to affect it!
I halved the ingredients and the two of us ate it all up with lovely thick double cream - valentines night (indulgence is aloud) :-)

Cut the recipe down to 2/3 and it wasn't cooked! No idea why as my oven tends to cook on the hot side. Put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes and it seemed OK. It tasted amazing, almost too rich though. Will try again and leave in the oven for another 5 minutes. Just found this recipe too which seems similar -http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1814647/selfsaucing-chocolate-pudding

It was nice but too rich for my liking, friends enjoyed it but the lemon self saucing pudding on here is much nicer after a main meal.

Amazing. I served with creme fraiche, which was yummy. Didn't have orange chocolate to hand, so doubled the amount of orange juice/zest. Worked well. Just had leftovers fro breakfast!
