It's National Dessert Day!

Try Mrs Quinn's Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

National Dessert Day provides us with the perfect excuse to let our sweet tooth take over. What could be better? From pastries and cakes to chocolates and mousses; there is a dessert for everyone. 

Here's Mrs Quinn's amazing Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding!
Serves 8
Time: 1 hour

1 cup self-raising flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup soft brown sugar
80g butter 
½ cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Vanilla ice cream or cream, to serve

¾ cup soft brown sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
1 ¼ cups boiling wate

Preheat oven to 180C bake (160C fan forced). Grease a 6 cup capacity ovenproof baking dish.

Sift flour and cocoa into a bowl.

Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl until creamy. Add in the egg and beat again, slowly adding the milk. Fold in the flour/cocoa mixture until smooth.

Spoon into a baking dish and smooth the top. Now make the sauce.

Combine the brown sugar and cocoa and sprinkle over the pudding. Slowly pour the boiling water over the pudding to cover it. Place the dish into a baking tray and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the pudding bounces back when pressed gently in the centre.

Serve hot with vanilla ice cream or cream.
