  • 100g orange milk chocolate or milk chocolate, broken into chunks (we used Divine orange milk chocolate)
  • single cream or ice cream, to serve

For the sauce

  • 200g light muscovado sugar
  • 25g cocoa

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.

I'm not a big fan of chocoate bu this is definately a hit especiilay served with custard! i used milk chocolate instead of orange milk chocolate and i think the hint of orange was just right. it was a hit with the family. lovely!

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.
