- 2 tbsp cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting
- 200g Asda self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 150g caster sugar
- Butter, for greasing
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 2 tbsp golden syrup
- 200ml whole milk
- 200ml sunflower oil
- Icing sugar, for dusting
- 200ml sachet Asda Extra Special Belgian Chocolate Sauce, to serve
- Cream, to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Sift the cocoa, flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl and add the caster sugar. Butter an ovenproof dish and dust the inside of it with cocoa powder.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, golden syrup and half the milk together until evenly blended. Add the rest of the milk and the oil. Then pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk to make a smooth batter.
Pour into the ovenproof dish and bake for 25-30 minutes until the pudding is puffed up and firm on top. Test by sticking a skewer in the middle – if it comes out clean, the pudding is cooked.
Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with cream and chocolate sauce.
