    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Grease an ovenproof dish, I used a glass dish around 2 litres.
    2. Sift flour, sugar and 2 tablespoons cocoa into a large mixing bowl. Add combined milk, butter and vanilla and stir until smooth. Pour mixture into baking dish.
    3. Sift combined brown sugar and remaining cocoa evenly over the top of the pudding mix. Gently pour the water over the pudding, using a spoon to break the flow. Transfer to oven and bake for approximately 50 minutes.
    4. Serve hot from the oven and dust with icing sugar if desired, enjoy!

    Hi there i'm not sure if you noticed that you have in your ingredients, 1 Cup (125g) Self-raising flour, did you mean 1 Cup (225g) not (125g) or is that right when you say (125g) sorry to be a pain. Other then that i'm can't wait to try this out. Thanks  -  28 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I've made a similar recipe to this before, but this has a lot more sauce YUMMO!! I put into four rammekins and cooked for 30minutes, but make sure you put them on a baking tray to collect the over-flowing sauce. Also, when making the sauce, mix cocoa and sugar together then add the hot water to dissolve and gently pour over cake mix. A lot easier this way.  -  24 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Loooovley dessert, though my dish was a little small and it bubbled over somewhat... very tasty though. All I would call into question is "serves 6" sorry but that was 2 very large portions for me :D  -  01 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
