  1. Wow ok, so just made this pud pud for all my friends. Half didn’t cook in microwave, but that was ok! because the other half that WAS cooked, was extra scrumptious! Bit of a guilty treat (60g of butter, oh lawd!!), but definately worth the naughty late-night cook up!! xxx 10/10

  2. Tried this with a 1100w microwave, and…

    it made one hell of a mess. Turned the microwave down to 50% but it was still bubbling over. Need a bigger bowl methinks, or a smaller recipe. Would I just reduce everything proportionally?

  3. Delish and so easy. I’ve been craving chocolate self saucing pudding for months but the wait for oven cooked always put me off. Even the hubby who “doesn’t eat pudding” loved it.

  4. your chocolate pudding is amazing. i am a food tech teacher and wanted something to make with my year 9’s that was quick and easy, so i got them to make this. It was so easy and tastes amazing i got my year 12 and 13’s to make it and even they enjoyed themselves. Than you very much
