Slow Cooker Self Saucing Mocha Pudding

Sharing is caring!

If you thought Slow Cookers or Crockpots were just for soups, stews and one pot meals, think again and make room for dessert ! Who can resist a hot chocolate pudding for dessert ?

This delicious pudding comes in its own pool of sumptuous chocolate and Tia Maria sauce. It’s so easy to make with no need for a tin inside your slow cooker as the sauce keeps the sponge lovely and moist and prevents any chance of the sponge burning. It looks fab and will go down well with all your friends and really takes no effort at all.

We shared this pudding with my sister and her family. I took my slow cooker to her house, whisked together the ingredients, added my frozen chocolate Tia Maria cubes, poured over the sauce and left the slow cooker to work its magic while we enjoyed the meal my sister had cooked.

Slow Cooker Self  Saucing  Mocha Pudding

Serves: At least 6
Chocolate and Tia Maria cubes:
  • 150 g dark chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons espresso
  • 2 tablespoons Tia Maria or Bourbon or Amaretto
  • 75 g (⅓ cup) butter melted and cooled
  • 150 g (1 ¼cup) plain / all purpose flour
  • 50 g (½ cup) ground almonds
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour / cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 110 g (½ cup) caster / superfine sugar
  • 150 ml (⅔ cup) milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 300 ml (1¼ cup) boiling water
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • 110 g (½ cup) dark soft brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Tia Maria

Prepare your chocolate and Tia Maria cubes:
Melt the chocolate with the espresso, mix in the Tia Maria and pour into an ice cube tray. Freeze until solid. (You can do this the day before if you wish)

Spray the inside of your slow cooker pot with cooking spray or lightly grease.
Melt the butter in a jug in the microwave for 30 seconds and leave to cool a little.
Sift all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Whisk milk and eggs into cooled melted butter.
Pour onto the dry ingredients and briefly whisk until smooth – 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the greased slow cooker pot.
Place frozen chocolate cubes on top of chocolate mixture.
Quickly mix the boiling water with cocoa powder, espresso powder, dark brown sugar and Tia Maria in a jug and pour over the pudding.
Don’t worry if this recipe goes against how you may have cooked before – be patient, it works !
Put the slow cooker pot in place and cook on high for approximately 1 1/2 hours until firm and well risen.
Served with fresh cream or ice cream, this pudding is truly irresistible.

Gosh, this looks so dreamy. I'm a relative newcomer to slow cooking so have yet to try something sweet in it. I have a feeling this could be a good place to start...

Does using the ice cubes ensure there will be some molten sauce left?

It does indeed :-) lots of lovely gooey molten chocolate. If you haven't made anything sweet in your slow cooker yet, I reckon chocolate molten pudding is a good place to start.
