Oh wow, what more do you want us to say – this chocolate self-saucing pudding is amazeballs!!!  It’s now become our go-to crowd-pleasing dinner party dish.  It works well with spelt flour and I urge you, like seriously urge you, to give it a go!

We love this served with plain vanilla ice-cream and a drizzle of pure cream.  Gosh, yum!

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Enjoy! Tracey and Jo x
