Do you love chocolate?! Do you love winter desserts?! If you answered yes to those questions, prepare yourself for love! This is the ultimate winter dessert for the family, individual or even a boozy dinner party. You can whip this up in ten minutes, and sit back whilst the oven does the rest. Are you ready for love?!
125 ml milk
60 g butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
¾ cup caster sugar
2 tbs cocoa
1 cup self-raising flour
½ cup brown sugar for on top
2 tbs cocoa for sprinkling on top
2 cups boiling water for on top
Stir the butter, essence and milk over low heat in a saucepan until melted together. Add the caster sugar and take off the stove. Add the flour and cocoa, stirring until well combined. Spray a little olive oil to cover a deep oven proof dish, then pour in the batter. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top, and sift the cocoa onto the top too. Now gently pour over 2 cups of boiling water. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for around 40 minutes. It will look like a spongey cake on the top, but when you break through with a spoon the true nature of the beast will reveal itself. An inch of sauce baby!! Serve on its own or with ice-cream! This is scrumptious! I hope you love it!
