Coffee and Chocolate Pudding


I love these self-saucing puddings and this Coffee and Chocolate Pudding is tops. The coffee is not overpowering, it just adds to the richness of the dessert.

As with most types of this pudding, the sauce thickens on standing after baking, but it comes out of the oven with an already thick syrup-like sauce which is the way I prefer it to be.

We normally enjoy this dessert with ice-cream, but I have found that my family prefers custard or whipped cream during Winter ... yes, I make this anytime of the year !
