Rhubarb and Chocolate Pudding Recipe

If, like me, you have started harvesting your Rhubarb, and you're on the look out for a recipe other than Rhubarb Crumble, then Rhubarb and Chocolate Pudding is perfect for you. I find that whilst a few people may wince at the thought of eating rhubarb, they soon change their mind once they have tasted this pudding. This recipe is from a magazine cutting, sadly I don't know the publication. But it has given me the chance to use my new recipe file.

Lovely rhubarb
Usually when I make this recipe it's as one large pudding, but this time I decided to make individual puddings. This is my small effort to limit portion sizes when it comes to pudding. 

This recipe will make approximately 9 individual ramekins.
Oven temperature 200C/180C fan or gas mark 6.

Fruit
400g(approx) rhubarb (cleaned and chopped into small pieces)
65gr sugar

Sponge
2 eggs
100g self raising flour
112g butter or margarine (softened)
100g golden caster sugar
12g coco powder (sifted)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
50ml milk
25g dark chocolate chips

Place the chopped rhubarb in the bottom of your ramekin dishes, filling the dishes 3/4 full, sprinkle over the sugar, see photo above.

Add all the sponge ingredients into a bowl, with the exception of the  chocolate chips. Whisk until combined. Then add and stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon the mix over the rhubarb, and spread out evenly. Sprinkle a little sugar on the top, this will give you a lovely crunchy top.

Bake in the oven for around 20-25 mins or until the sponge is cooked, test by inserting a skewer which should come out clean.

Serve as it is or with custard or ice cream.
