Master Chef Eat Your Heart Out!

We are all huge fans of the show Master Chef and watch it each night. My eldest daughter at the moment enjoys collecting recipes and as soon as a magazine comes into the house she wants to cut out the recipes, so there are some negotiations going on here for who gets what recipe. Tonight I decided to make one of our favourite desserts in our house, Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding. I got the recipe out of the Family Circle Magazine a couple of years ago now. When anyone in the house has a birthday, this is usually the most asked for dessert to have. So here is the recipe for you to enjoy:

1 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
160ml (2/3 cup) milk
75g unsalted butter, melted
Ice cream to serve
Chocolate Sauce
1 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
180ml (3/4 cup) hot milk
180ml (3/4 cup) water

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease four 375ml capacity ovenproof dishes with butter.
2. Sift the flour and cocoa together into a large bow. Add the sugar and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre. Whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter in a small bowl. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
3.Pour the mixture into the greased dishes.
4. To make the chocolate sauce, combine the sugar and cocoa, and sift evenly over the top of the puddings. Combine the hot milk and 180ml water. Slowly pour a quarter of hot milk mixture onto each pudding over the back of a spoon.
5. Bake the puddings in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the tops are firm. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Dust with extra cocoa and serve with ice cream.
I hope you enjoy this dessert as much as we all do here and I know that technically I have posted a couple more blog entries since I did the Paying it Forward, but if you would like to have a little homemade goodie from me then don't hesitate to leave a post of couple of days ago. I have one lovely lady who would like something, do I have any other takers? Talk to you again soon.
