Ingredients

  • 100g butter or margarine, plus extra for the bowl
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 150ml/¼ pint milk
  • 1 egg (large or medium)
  • 1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
  • 225g self-raising flour , minus 1 heaped tbsp
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

For the sauce

  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 4 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g good-quality dark chocolate

Method

  • STEP 1

    Butter the inside of a 1.2 litre pudding bowl and line the base with a disc of buttered greaseproof paper.

  • STEP 2

    Melt the butter, syrup and sugar in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk and egg. Add the cocoa to the flour, then tip this mixture into the pan with the cinnamon and soda.

  • STEP 3

    Pour the mixture into the pudding bowl, cover tightly with foil and steam for 11⁄4 hours. Just before the end, heat the sauce ingredients until melted, stirring all the time.

  • STEP 4

    Turn the pudding out (run a knife around the inside of the bowl if necessary) and discard the paper disc. Pour the sauce over the top and serve immediately.
