Chocolate sponge pudding

This is gorgeous… even better with some home made chocolate sauce covering it… or just with it #NotJudging


  • 1 oz margarine
  • 2 oz sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 8 oz grated raw potato
  • 6 oz flour
  • 1 oz cocoa (original recipe called for Bournville Cocoa… but I find that a bit bitter)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp milk


  1. Cream fat and sugar together.
  2. Mix the egg with the raw potato and beat it into the fat and sugar.
  3. Mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together and add to the creamed mixture, then stir in enough milk to make a soft dough.
  4. Put into a greased pudding basin and steam for 1 hour or bake in a pie dies in the oven 30 to 40 minutes.

  1. I really like your blog, so there was no need to bribe me with a chocolate sponge pudding, but seeing as you have it would be rude not to try it… ;0)
