Simon's slow cooker chocolate fudge pudding
As promised on this morning's Morning Show with Simon Brown and our amazing Today's Special Value slow cooker, here I am with his recipe for the delicious Chocolate Fudge Pudding that he delighted us with.
The savoury recipes are generally a simple case of brown the meat, add the other ingredients and let the slow cooker work its magic.
For this one though, it's worth having a recipe to follow, so here it is...
Simon's Slow Cooker Chocolate Fudge Pudding
Sift 4oz plain flour, 4oz sugar, 2oz cocoa powder and 1 tsp baking powder together in a bowl.
Melt 1oz butter and add to bowl with 4 floz milk. Mix thoroughly.
Grease sides of slow cooker bowl and add mix, levelling it out.
Add 6oz dark muscovado sugar and 2oz sieved cocoa powder to half a pint of boiling water in a jug. Stir or whisk until all the sugar has dissolved and there are no lumps of cocoa. Gently pour over cake mix. DO NOT STIR!!
Cook for about 90 minutes on high setting until a skewer is clean coming out of the cake. Serve with creme fraiche, cream, ice cream or chocolate custard. Or all four! (That bit was added by me - KT X)
If you leave it longer, turn the setting to keep warm. The pudding will be fine, although eventually the fudge sauce will become thicker.
I hope you managed to buy our fabulous offer. If not, I'm sure it won't be long before it's back on QVC as it's so popular, and such good value, even at QVC price. Look out for more great ideas for the kitchen from Cook's Essentials - there's lots to look forward to in 2012.
See you all later.
