Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Self Saucing Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding.

Autumn definitely seems to be upon us now, the weather was ridiculously windy and rainy in Scotland yesterday.  I’ve started to make some more homely autumn recipes like this self saucing chocolate peanut pudding.

Self saucing puddings always look crazy when you are making them – it just doesn’t seem right to pour all that water over uncooked cake batter.   Luckily something magical happens in the oven and hey presto you end up with a beautiful sauce and a light sponge.

I quite like puddings like this when people are round for dinner because they are quick to put together and can bake in the oven ready to serve after you have finished your main – cuts out any faffing around from more intricate dessert recipes.  I think I  might try a lime version of a self saucing pudding for my next experiment.
