An astoundingly rich and luxurious chocolate pudding, sure to put a smile on some faces!

Bonus point: It’s dead-simple to make!


For 8 servings:

  • 150g Plain FlourChocolate Pudding with Stout
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 50g Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 125ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 60ml Vegetable Oil
  • 100g Soft, Dark Brown Sugar
  • 235ml Liquorice Lads Stout
  • Small knob of butter for greasing


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas mark 4.
  2. Grease a 2-litre shallow pudding dish with the knob of butter.
  3. Sieve flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, the salt and half of the cocoa powder into a large bowl. Mix in the caster sugar.
  4. Whisk milk, vanilla essence and oil together in a measuring jug and pour onto the dry ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon or whisk to make a thick batter, then spoon into the buttered pudding dish.
  5. Combine the brown sugar and remaining cocoa powder in another bowl, all whilst making sure there are no lumps. Sprinkle the mixture over the cake batter.
  6. Add the Liquorice Lads Stout to a pan and warm through. Then, pour over the cake batter.
  7. Put into the oven for 35 minutes. The top of the chocolate pudding will have set into a firm sponge, whilst the bottom will contain a delicious chocolate and liquorice sauce.

Tips (Making the best Chocolate Pudding!)

  • Want an even tastier chocolate pudding? Stick it in the fridge for 24 hours once it’s cooled down (you’ll thank me later).
  • Serve with ice cream, cream, or some lovely homemade custard.
  • If you don’t have any of our award-winning Liquorice Lads Stout on hand (and really, who doesn’t?), feel free to substitute in Jem’s Stout or Lazy Wind!
