This chocolate self Saucing pudding recipe has been my childhood favorite after learning it back in high school. I have used this recipe over and over and I still love the pudding it produces.

This recipe is relatively simple and be done in very little time making it a very good choice if you’re running out of time but feel like making a nice easy rich chocolatey dessert.


If you need to make this for quite a few people then doubling this recipe should feed about 6-8 people depending on how much people tend to eat. Don’t fear if you have any leftovers as this pudding will reheat perfectly. I love having this for breakfast as a bit of a treat.

If you don’t feel like making an entire pudding but feel like a chocolate dessert then check out the mug brownie recipe. This is a great chocolate brownie that can be quickly whipped up in a mug. The best thing about it is that it only takes a couple of minutes.

Cooking Tips:

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.
