The Best Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Right now, I swear at the weather report. Because 12 Degrees is not a bloody maximum!!
Ryan just laughs at me, and starts making wintery desserts. This one, from Donna Hay's 'the instant cook', is the best one we've ever found. The book is worth it, just for this recipe and the bread and butter pudding.
My only advice for messing with this recipe: smaller servings are good, if you've eaten dinner. And don't over cook it - it's better fudgy.

chocolate dessert cakes
185g butter, melted
1 Cup caster sugar
1/3 Cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/4 Cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Cup cocoa
double cream to serve

Preheat the oven to 160 Degrees Celsius. Place the butter, sugars and eggs in a bowl and mix unti combined. Sift over the dry ingredients, and mix until combined. Place in 4 x 1Cup capacity coffee mugs (or whatever). Bake until 20 minutes or until fudgy. Serve warm or colded topped with the cream.
Oh, I forgot! These are also really awesome heated up in the microwave! They rise, and taste just as good as when they first came out of the oven. I might have to make some more...

I know how you feel about swearing at the weather. I have pretty much stopped for now (well, until about October) but any night over summer you could hear me muttering rude words followed by... " 29 is not a mininum!"

Enjoy your wintery desserts, I'm envying you.

This is such a beautiful pudding. I have saved to give it a try! :D

Yeah, I know about the weather. So cold and rainy. Not that we don't need more rain, but the weather just makes me feel kinda moody at the moment. But a bowl of soup or pudding can be the perfect cure! ;)
