Nigella's Sticky Chocolate Pudding

We only eat puddings at the weekend and I try to make something on Saturday that will do for Sunday as well.  I wasn't sure what I was going to make but it had to be something messy and sticky (more of this later in the week) so sugar was going to feature and I had a big bar of dark chocolate and a new tub of Green and Blacks Cocoa powder.  Some rootling around in the recipe books and I found Nigella Lawson's  Sticky Chocolate Pudding from 'How to Eat'.

You make up the pudding mixture and put it in the dish, then cover it with dark brown sugar and cocoa and then pour boiling water over the whole thing!

What happens is that the sponge rises to the top and you have a lovely chocolate sauce in the bottom of the dish.

Lovely, rich, sticky and gooey pud. 

On Saturday I served it with soured cream.  I then divided the remaining pudding into ramekins and on Sunday reheated it in the microwave and served with ice-cream.

I would thoroughly recommend this pud.  You get between 6-9 servings, depending on how greedy you are!

I'm entering this for the February Forever Nigella challenge #12 at Maison Cupcake

I reckon this is one of the best type of chocolate puddings. I know it as self-saucing pudding, but it's pretty much the same. Your great photos really show just how saucy this pudding is!!!

If I could only eat one pudding for the entire rest of my life...well, this would be it!

Thats some chocolate pudding! I was following you all the way with the recipe until you got to the part of 'pour boiling water over the whole thing' - eek! What I want to know is did you hesitate when you poured the water over the mixture?

Choclette - yes it is a self-saucing pudding, like the lemon one which has been around for a long time and is very good.
Kate - goodness, I'm not sure I could eat it for the rest of my life.
Gardenteacakesandme - nope, never hesitated for a moment. I've done something similar before, indeed I think Nigella's Sticky Toffee Pudding reqhuires the boiling water trick!

this recipe is such fun - I've made it too and you never really think it's going to work.....but it does! Really fun pouring over the water

I love these puddings. I haven't tried Nigella's recipe but I use another recipe to make the same kind of thing, it is DELICIOUS! And your photos make it look great! Mmmmmm

Looks amazing, I love how easy most of Nigella's puddings are. Could it it all right now!

Not many things beat a sticky chocolate pudding! I've never heard of pouring boiling water over a pudding before but am glad to have heard of a new method.

Oh good Lord! If those photos aren't food porn then I don;t know what is!

I do do love kind of pudding where you get a wonderful sticky sauce which can be scooped up with ice cream or custard and it looks perfectly cooked too!
