 Mix Egg with the Sugar and Vanilla oil, and beat air into it. Pour Chocolate Butter Mix into this bowl and sift flour on top. Fold all ingredients together until well mixed!

Now its time to butter and flour your pudding molds, once that is done, you can fill the Chocolate Pudding mix for ¾ in the molds. Top each mold with Clingfilm to prevent the pudding drying out. Keep refrigerated up to 4 days, or frozen up to a month.

 

 

When ready to bake, preheat oven at 188 degrees Celsius and bake Pudding for 10 minutes, you will see the Pudding has risen nicely and has a head on it.

 

To make the Custard Sauce, bring Milk with the Vanilla Pod to a boil, in a separate bowl mix Egg Yolks and Sugar. Once the Milk boils, turn of Fire and add hot Milk to the Egg Mix, stir, and pour the mix back into the pan. On a LOW fire you bring the temperature up to almost boiling, whilst constantly stirring to “set” the Egg Yolks.

 

When done, pour through a strainer into a storage box.

 

Place a spoon or two full of Custard Sauce on the plate and top with the Warm Pudding, which is filled with melting Chocolate Sauce!

 

Garnish as you like with Fresh Berries and Icing Sugar!
