Mini chocolate sponge puddings

Recipe courtesy of Trex



  • TREX a little, for greasing
  • Chocolate spread 4 tbsp
  • Self-raising flour 100g
  • Cocoa powder 1 ½ tbsp
  • Salt ¼ tsp
  • Light soft brown sugar 75g
  • TREX 65g, at room temperature
  • Large egg 1
  • Milk 3 ½ tbsp
  • Vanilla extract ½ tsp
  • Custard to serve


  • Step 1

    Lightly grease four individual pudding basins with a little TREX, then add 1 tbsp. chocolate spread to each basin.

  • Step 2

    Sift the flour, cocoa powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, TREX, unbeaten egg, milk and vanilla extract. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture together until smooth and creamy – this will only take 1-2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Share the mixture equally between the pudding basins and level the tops. Cover each one tightly with a piece of foil.

  • Step 4

    Place the basins in a steamer, cover with the lid and steam steadily for 30-35 minutes, taking care that the steamer does not boil dry – top up with boiling water if necessary.

  • Step 5

    Carefully turn out the puddings and serve with custard.
