Method

  1. Butter a large baking dish (about 2-3 litres in size). Sift the flour, ½ tsp salt, caster sugar, baking powder and 6 tbsp cocoa powder into a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, then pour into the baking dish. This can be covered with cling film and chilled for up to 24 hrs.
  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and boil the kettle. Take the pudding out of the fridge and uncover, if necessary. Sprinkle the muscovado sugar and cocoa evenly over the pudding, then pour 700ml boiling water over the top.
  3. Bake for 35-45 mins until the pudding is puffy and firm in the centre. Scatter over the marshmallows and return to the oven for 30-second intervals until they are just melting. Serve straight away – it will be hot – with cream or ice cream

I made this when friends came round - it was amazing! Totally hit the spot. I didn't use marshmallows - thought that would make it too sickly. It was so good I had 2 helpings!

Fantastically rich pudding. Great for a girls night in with loads of vanilla ice cream. I didn't add the marshmellows as it was rich enough. Would make again, but halve the quantity for 8 people.

No, Followed the recipe to the letter, but served with Rolo ice cream. Think adding zest of orange would be great also.

Brilliant Recipe - did as recipe said first time and 2nd. Then the following 2 times made a normal sponge with added Orange for a tangy tast then put over the top boiling water with some sugar (small amount) and about 2 tbsp grapefruit Marmalade.
Took about an hour to cook and then was sat in grapefruit curd type syrup. Really tasty will be adapting and making more.
