It’s true that you can have a gluten free pudding, and a chocolate self saucing one at that! Oh yes, we are going next level today you guys! Self saucing chocolate pudding is actually one of my Dad’s favourite desserts and therefore one of mine too! It’s rich, gooey and luxurious! Like you’re in a fluffy, chocolatey cloud of deliciousness, yum?!
You will LOVE digging into this and having all of that velvety warm sauce drizzle out…. isn’t that the epitome of a dessert?! I suggest serving this fresh fresh cream straight from the carton, or you can whip it up and have it lovely and thick. Custard also works a treat with this chocolate pudding. Sprinkle a little or generous (let’s be honest, it’s a generous amount) of icing sugar! Or cacao! Oh the options are endless.
This is my first pudding I’m posting for you guys and I’m unsure as to why it has taken me this long! Goodness golly gosh! Well fear no longer, it is here, I’m sure you weren’t too worried. This chocolate pudding is perfect it you’re having dinner guests over because it makes the ideal amount for group to share, or a family of 3-5, depending on your desired amount of pudding you want to consume, I hope it’s large!
There is currently still a quarter of my chocolate pudding still in my refrigerator and I think I’ll have to drag myself off of my bed, turn on the oven and heat some up, whilst you get into that kitchen of yours to bake yourself one and we can enjoy it together!
