Gluten-Free Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

The sauce of this pudding is rich and really helps to take this pudding to the next level. The sauce doesn’t need to be thickened as it should thicken throughout cooking.

Make sure you keep the leftovers if there is any as they will refrigerate for a few days just fine. Simply reheat in either the oven or microwave depending on what’s easier and available to you. Since the leftovers are so good I recommend doubling this recipe if you love having some chocolate pudding for breakfast, it’s as good as it sounds.

Since this pudding makes its own sauce, you don’t really need to have anything extra with it. However, if you’re feeling super hungry then some ice cream, custard or cream will go fantastically well with the pudding.

Recipe Tips

  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you need to feed quite a few people. However, I do recommend that you split it up across more ovenproof dishes so that it cooks consistently.
  • Some chocolate chips can be added into the pudding mix to add even more chocolate to this dish. I recommend using milk chocolate, but you can also use dark or even white for something different.
  • Having the butter and eggs at room temperature will make this dish easier to prepare. If they’re cold, then you might find they will not mix together very well. If your mix is a bit lumpy from the eggs and butter being too cold, then it should still be fine as you won’t notice this at the end of baking.
