Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

After 3 days of puddings today I thought I will see what puddings are… I know I am closing the stable door after the horse but...

Puddings according to Wikipedia,” are believed to come from the French boudin, originally from the Latin botellus, meaning "small sausage", referring to encased meats used in Medieval European puddings.”

Puddings are made in savoury and sweet. But in UK and commonwealth countries it’s a usually a dessert.

This time around I have looked at some sweet puddings, later I think some savoury puddings need to be explored!

Anyway this is the only pudding that was not bookmarked. I stumbled into it and fell in love with it. I had to,"Fire up my Oven for it" And the girls they loved in fact Apeksha, my elder one has asked me to make it for her birthday!
