This is my run to comfort chocolate dessert . it is warm and chocolatey gooey . To the eye as the dessert is taken out of the oven it looks like a well risen chocolate cake , but , when cut into , there emerges two seperate layers , “The pudding will seperate into two layer ;a gooey chocolate sauce topped with a light chocolate sponge . Needless to say , serve warm .
5 TBS cocoa powder
2 TBS unsalted butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 cups milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 *F. Lightly grease a 4 inch deep glass dish or loaf pan .
Place the butter , half the sugar and half the milk in a pan and heat gently , stirring from time to time, until the butter has melted and all the sugar has dissolved .Remove from heat .
Sift the flour , baking powder , cinnamon powder and one tablespoon of cocoa powder together into the pan and stir well to mix. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and level the surface .
Stir the remaining sugar and cocoa powder into a seperate bowl and mix well . Sprinkle the mixture over the pudding mixture in the dish . Pour the remaining milk over the pudding mixture.
Bake for fifty minutes or until the sponge has risen to the top and is firm to the touch . The pudding will seperate into two layers : a gooey chocolate sauce topped with a light chocolate sponge . Serve hot .
