Thermobexta’s Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

Chocolate self saucing pudding was the really special dessert we occasionally had whilst growing up. Mum used to make it every now and then and when I moved out I took a copy of her recipe. I’ve made it a few times and every time I do it brings back fond memories of eating it as a kid.
