This self saucing pudding comes from my friend and neighbor Grant. It is a super easy and exquisite dessert — moist chocolate cake with a thick, ooey, gooey chocolate sauce at the bottom of the pan. Delightful excellence!

Serves twelve
1 ¾ cups (250 grams) self-rising flour
½ cup (140 grams) packed brown sugar for the cake + ¾ cup (200 grams) for the topping
¾ cup (50 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder for the cake + 6 TBS (25 grams) for the topping
1 tsp. baking powder
1 TBS orange zest
1 medium orange, juiced — approximately ¾ cup or 6 oz.
¾ cup (150 ml)milk
3 large eggs at room temperature
½ cup (100 grams) of melted unsalted butter — cooled
¾ cup (100 grams) of chocolate chunks — dark, milk or orange chocolate
1 ¼ cups (300 ml) of boiling water

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and butter an 8 cup oven proof deep dish. Lightly whisk together the milk and eggs. Add the butter and mix well. Set aside.

Place the flour, ½ cup brown sugar, ¾ cup cocoa powder and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the zest and whisk for a couple of minutes until everything is nicely incorporated. Make a well in the middle and pour in the orange juice and mix. Start adding the egg and milk mixture in batches, whisking well after each addition until you have a nice uniform batter — this will take you about 5 minutes of whisking. Add in the chocolate chunks and mix.

Pour your batter into your baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar on top and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining cocoa powder on top of the sugar and spread it out evenly. Very slowly start pouring the boiling water over the top of the inverted side of a large spoon into your batter. Be patient and do this nice and slowly, rotating your bowl as you work. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the top of your cake is firm and not spongy.

Remove your cake from the oven and serve hot. You can add some ice cream or custard if you would like. Enjoy!
