Christmas Chocolate Pudding

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).
