Christmas Chocolate Pudding

December 13, 2017

Here is my super simple (and I mean super simple) recipe for the perfect Christmas pudding alternative. This pudding is steamed which produces a seriously light and moist sponge texture. Drizzle with a delicious chocolate sauce and serve - honestly you will not be disappointed.



For the Sponge Pudding

- 90g Plain flour

- 25g Cocoa powder

- 1/2 tsp Vanilla bean paste

- 95g Golden caster sugar

- 95g Unsalted butter

- 40ml Plain natural yoghurt

- 1 egg (and 1 extra egg yolk)

- 1tsp Baking powder

- 1/4tsp Bicarbonate of soda


For the Chocolate sauce 


- 145g Plain chocolate

- 145ml Double cream

- 40g Golden syrup

- 2tsp Vanilla extract


You will also need - 1.2L Pudding basin (greased)




- Into a food processor. sift the flour and cocoa powder before adding the remaining ingredients and blitz until it forms a smooth mixture.


- Pour the mixture into the pudding basin and steam (using either a conventional steamer or a pan of water) for 90 minutes.


- Before the pudding is ready prepare the sauce by placing all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat on a medium temperature until the chocolate has melted.


- After 90 minutes remove the pudding from the steamer and turn out onto your serving plate. 


- Drizzle with the chocolate sauce and serve.


(Left overs - if there are any - can be reheated again in the microwave before serving).
