    Chocolate brownie pudding recipe

    Serves: 4
    Cooking Time: 40 mins


    • 150g cake flour
    • 5ml (1 tsp) baking powder
    • 50g cocoa powder
    • 50g salted butter
    • 50g dark chocolate
    • 225g sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 5ml (1 tsp) vanilla extract
    • 125ml (½ cup) warm milk mixed with 15ml (1 tbsp) instant coffee
    • Chocolate syrup

    • 125ml (½ cup) water
    • 100g (½ cup) sugar
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) cocoa powder
    • good quality ice cream, to serve
    • dark chocolate, melted, to serve (optional)



    Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a medium ovenproof dish.


    Sift together the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder, and set aside.


    Melt the butter and chocolate over a double boiler until smooth.


    Whisk together the sugar and eggs until light and creamy. Stir in the melted butter and chocolate and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour mixture followed by the milk and coffee.


    Pour the batter into the prepared dish and place in the oven.


    Bake until the pudding is cooked but still slightly gooey in the centre, 25 – 30 minutes.


    For the syrup, heat all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup has reduced slightly. Pour over the pudding and allow to stand for 5 minutes.


    Serve the pudding warm with ice cream and a drizzle of melted chocolate.
