Simon’s slow cooker chocolate fudge pudding



Simon's chocolate fudge pudding

Hi Guys! 

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

  1. Sift 4oz plain flour, 4oz sugar, 2oz cocoa powder and 1 tsp baking powder together in a bowl.
  2. Melt 1oz butter and add to bowl with 4 floz milk. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Grease sides of slow cooker bowl and add mix, levelling it out.
  4. 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!!
  5. 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.

    Thankyou Kathy!! I’m a chocoholic and this is going to be the first recipe in my lovely stylish new slow cooker (I have the black). Hiding this one from my housemates! Just turned 30 recently and have treated myself to a few new things. This is great to use after a long day at work on a busy cosmetics counter then travelling home when sometimes it’s hard to find the energy to cook for one from scratch every day. Thanks again for thinking of us with the recipe.

    I made this for my valentine last night, it was a winner! There was enough for 4 people easily, but being only 2 of us means we have some for tonight as well, we had ours with custard. It’s going to the top of our fav pudding list, and so easy. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi everyone. Just a quickie to answer your queries – simon says plain flour, although I don’t think it would harm if you only have self raising. This is really a recipe for the slow cooker, but you could try it in the oven – probably about 180 degrees C (160 fan) but it would need less time – keep on eye on it but I’m guessing maybe half the time? Maybe up to an hour? It’s worth a go but as the slow cooker was such a good price it’s also worth thinking about buying if there are any any left – even at full price. I’m sure we’ll have more in stock soon, and hopefully at introductory price. Keep a look out on line for it. Hope you love the choc pud!

    I was concerned to find that no eggs were mentioned in the recipe, but see that at least one person has made it and found it delicious. Perhaps you can tell us which type of flour you used, plain or SR

    Hello again!
    I’ve managed to get Simon’s rice pudding and porridge recipes for you – i hope you’re enjoying your slow cookers.
    Rice pudding:
    110g (4oz) pudding rice
    55g (2oz) sugar
    25g (1oz) butter
    1.2l (2 pints) whole milk
    Cooks Essentials raspberry coulis to serve (or raspberry jam – my childhood favourite with rice pudding! KT)
    Put it all into the slow cooker, stir and turn on to high and cover. Cook for 5 hours, stirring after the first hour. Serve with the fruit coulis or jam.
    1 cup oats

    I hope these recipes work for you – give them a go and let me know.

    I have missed the answer to a recent competition in the Morning Show. It was the one where there was 12 squares. Some phoned in with ruby an other with gems. What was the answer? Desperate to find out, I tried all ways to come up with an answer.
