Magic Harry Potter Chocolate Pudding!

Harry Potter Magic PuddingThis luscious chocolate pudding forms week 5 of my new year’s resolution for 2013 to cook at least one new thing every week, for the year.


It’s utterly scrummy and wholeheartedly decadent.
(…and yes it does look a bit like a brain LOL!)

The magic of this recipe is that having made a simple all in one chocolate sponge mix you then, shock horror, pour a watery liquid all over it and it magically sinks through the sponge mix, cooking it and turning into a thick luscious chocolate sauce on the way. My kiddies thought it was totally magic and promptly named it the Harry Potter Pudding. It’s so wonderfully simple to make the kiddies were able to do most of it themselves.

How To Make Magic Harry Potter Chocolate Pudding


For The Sponge

125g butter
125g sugar
2 large eggs
125g self-raising flour
25g cocoa powder

For The Sauce

25g cocoa powder
125g soft brown sugar
300 ml hot water

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C
  2. Put all of the cake ingredients into a bowl and mix until smooth.
  3. Spoon it all into the bottom of a deep pudding basin.
  4. In a jug dissolve the cocoa and brown sugar in the hot water to make the sauce.
  5. Pour it gently all over the sponge mix.


  6. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes until the sponge has risen and shrunk away from the sides of the dish and the sauce has sunk to the bottom and is bubbling round the sides of the sponge.

You can serve it up straight from the bowl but I chose to tip mine upside down so we could see all the luscious sauce. We had ours with extra thick double cream, my favourite.
