what’s for dinner??

June 28, 2007

our neighbour loves to cook, loves to try new recipies & loves to plan special dinners … i, on the other hand, prefer something quick & easy, rely on old favourites (like my special mince) & would LOVE to eat out/have takeaways more often (BUT living 150km from town makes that impossible!)

but guess what?? today dinner is planned & i’ve even baked dessert!

so what’s sparked the change in habits??

well, my MIL stayed with us recently & everyone LOVED her double decker chocolate pudding … & since she emailed her special recipe, there’s been a little ‘pressure’ to cook it

so – today was the day!

here’s the recipe:

Double-Decker Chocolate pudding
50 g butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 T (tablespoons) cocoa
1 egg
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup milk
Soften or gently melt the butter and beat in the sugar and cocoa. Add and beat in the egg, then add the flour alternately with the milk.
Pour into oven-proof dish (make sure it’s big enough to take the topping too).
For the topping:
2 T cocoa mixed together with 1/2 cup sugar (I like brown sugar)
2 cups boiling water (edited: more than 2 cups water will make more choc sauce)
Sprinkle the cocoa/sugar over the cake mixture, then gently pour the boiling water over the top – be very careful !
Bake in moderate over (180 degrees) for about 40 minutes.
It’s magic! It goes into the oven with the water on top and comes out with the cake on top!
