- When you’re pouring the boiling water over the pudding you can use the back of a spoon to pour onto. This will help stop the water from digging up your cake mix and causing bits of of it to float.
- If you find the sauce tasted a bit too much like brown sugar, simply add more cocoa powder in next time. Alternatively, you can reduce the brown sugar but this might affect the thickness of the sauce.
- Another variation you can try for this chocolate self saucing pudding is to add chocolate chips. If you add chocolate chips to the cake mix you will get nice gooey bits of chocolate throughout the pudding when it is finally cooked. The sauce will help prevent any of the chocolate from burning.
