Chocolate sponge pudding

Chocolate sponge pudding


  • A little TREX, for greasing
  • 4 tbsp chocolate spread
  • 100g (3.5 oz) self-raising flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 75g (2.6 oz) light soft brown sugar
  • 65g (2.3 oz) TREX at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ½ tbsp. milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Custard, to serve


  1. Lightly grease four individual pudding basins with a little TREX, then add 1 tbsp. chocolate spread to each basin.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, TREX, unbeaten egg, milk and vanilla extract. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture together until smooth and creamy – this will only take 1-2 minutes.
  3. Share the mixture equally between the pudding basins and level the tops. Cover each one tightly with a piece of foil.
  4. Place the basins in a steamer, cover with the lid and steam steadily for 30-35 minutes, taking care that the steamer does not boil dry – top up with boiling water if necessary.
  5. Carefully turn out the puddings and serve with custard.
