Friday Food – do you like chocolate?

This post has been resurrected from 2011. I’ve been asked to make it for Sunday, so I thought I’d share it with you again. Let me know if you try it.
I’m not a lover of chocolate.  However I have been known to succumb to the deepest, darkest plain chocolate.  This recipe is a family  favourite, although I don’t make it very often.
Chocolate Upside Down Pudding
Prepare as follows:
Part 1
Mix together in a bowl:
1 tablespoon of cocoa
Scant 2 ozs (50g) chopped nuts (I use freshly chopped walnuts, but any nuts or nut mix will do)
Scant 1 oz (20g) Demerara sugar.
Part 2
Boil the kettle ready for Part 3. While it is boiling:
Heat the oven to 350 deg F (180 deg C)
Mix well together in another bowl the following ingredients:
4 ozs (125 g) soft margarine
4 ozs (125 g) sugar
2 eggs
4 ozs (125g) Self Raising (All Purpose) Flour
1 rounded tablespoon cocoa.

Part 3

Make up half a pint (0.3 L) of STRONG coffee (use approx 3 teaspoonsful if using instant) and 20g (scant 1 oz) sugar. Stir well.
Part 4 – Trust me!
Grease a 2 pint (1.5L) pudding bowl.
Add the well mixed Part 2
Sprinkle Part 1 on top.
Finally, and as quickly as possible, pour the coffee mix of Part 3 on top. Pop it into the oven before you have time to panic that you have done it wrongly and wait for 50 minutes before you are tempted to open the door…..

When it is cooked – turn it out onto a serving plate and serve hot or warm with either vanilla icecream or cream

Enough for 4

  1. I have made something similar but without part 1. Does it have sauce at the bottom? I’m loving your blogs by the way..I keep finding yet another one. You must spend most of your day at the computer yet you clearly don’t as you teacher and do other things. I know you say you don’t need much sleep but even so…


  2. I’m afraid I love chocolate a little too much! The recipe sounds scrummy!

    Sorry I don’t comment often these days, but I do keep reading and enjoyong your posts:D


  3. That sounds yummy! I have been to a restaurant and I ordered a warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream on top. The combination of warm and cold was lovely and I was wondering how they did it. Your chocolate pudding with ice cream sounds like it and I might try your recipe soon. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
