Willy Wonka Pudding

It's hard to describe this pudding because whilst it contains the usual ingredients, it's made in a very different way (for example you add a pint of water to the mixture just before putting it in the oven). But all you need to know is that it is the simplest yet most amazingly gooey chocolate pudding EVER.

To begin sieve the (6oz) self-raising flour and (3 tbsps) cocoa powder into a bowl, then add in the chunks of margarine (3oz) and caster sugar (6oz) before combining them all together.

Stir in the (10 tbsps) milk and vanilla essence (the recipe doesn't state the quantity but I used roughly a tsp) before spooning the mixture into a Pyrex dish.

In a separate bowl mix the (4oz) brown sugar and (2 tbsps) cocoa together, and then sprinkle it over the top of the bowl of wet ingredients (bottom left).

Then pour a pint of boiling water over the top of the ingredients (yes it does look very strange at this point but stay with it). I put it in the oven at around 180oc for between 30-40 minutes but keep an eye on it as it can sometimes flow over the edge.

And this is the end result...

Whilst the picture doesn't do it justice, I can vouch that is by far one of the best chocolate puddings you'll ever make. Thanks for passing on the recipe Nana!


  1. I've never made one of these puddings, but always thought they looked really good, yours looks especially good!! xx

  2. Thank you, it's hard to make a very simple pudding look tasty but I can't recommend this recipe enough. It's so simple to follow and doesn't take long at all. Now you've got the recipe, you've got no excuse!
