I have made these recently with a recipe that produced the most tasteless poor textured, gluggy sauced, dry, uninspiring puddings.
The recipe was made up of Self raising flour, cocoa powder,castor sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk,60gms butter. this was made into a batter, then sprinkled with brown sugar & cocoa and hot water poured over the top. I even used good dutch cocoa.
Why do the resturant ones taste so good... do they have long complicated recipe with better ingredients..methods ??Have any hounds got a good recipe that produces rich, velvety piddings with smooth flowing sauce ??? I am ready to try it out tonight !
