Choccie Pud, a childhood favorite!

This is a recipe that I only just remembered a few days ago. My Mom used to make this often during the winter months in South Africa, and it is SO easy, completely from scratch, and super yummy. Since it’s cooked in the microwave, you don’t even have to wait for the oven to preheat! This dessert is hot, fudgey, chocolatey, cakey – everything you’d want on a cold fall or winter’s day!

For the cake part:

A stick and a tablespoon of butter (or 125g)

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup flour

3/4 cup milk

1 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp cocoa (unsweetened)

– Beat together in a medium sized bowl, then transfer to a microwave proof dish/bowl of some sort. I used a rectangular Pyrex dish.

For the Chocolate Gravy part:

2 cups boiling water

1 tbsp cocoa (unsweetened)

3/4 cup sugar

– stir together until sugar is dissolved, then pour on top of cake mixture but… DO NOT STIR!

– Cover dish in cling wrap, and microwave for 9-12 minutes. Yummy, yummy!
