Gluten-Free Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

This delicious gluten-free chocolate self-saucing pudding is the perfect dessert for any chocolate lover.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding

The pudding cooks to be fluffy, moist, and loaded with flavor. The sauce is rich in chocolate flavor and really helps 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 as they will refrigerate for a few days. Simply reheat any leftovers in either the oven or microwave, they’re are also pretty delicious cold.

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.

What to Serve with this Pudding

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 goes perfectly with the pudding.

Hot custard is also excellent drizzled over the top of the pudding. You can make some at home or you can make life easy and buy it from the supermarket. Both types of custard will work perfectly with this rich chocolate dessert.

The simplest accompaniment is a drizzle of cream over the top of the pudding. I prefer to use a thicker cream such as thickened cream, whipping cream, double cream, or heavy cream.

Recipe Tips

  • This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you need to feed quite a few people. However, I recommend that you split it across a couple of ovenproof dishes so that the puddings bake consistently.
  • You can add some chocolate chips into the pudding mix, so you get even more gooey chocolate. I recommend using milk chocolate, but you can also use dark chocolate or white chocolate instead.
  • Caster sugar is also known as superfine sugar or baker’s sugar. It can be substituted with regular sugar if required.
  • 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.
