Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding a.k.a heaven in a bowl.

I'm gutted that this picture looks so rubbish, I was in such a hyped excitement and couldn't wait to eat it!! It tastes absolutely delicious and takes about 5minutes to prepare and 8 minutes to cook in the microwave. It's a chocolate self-saucing pudding and honestly, you HAVE to make this if you're a gooey chocolate lover! Surprisingly it's pretty low in fat, for it to taste this good I can't believe it doesn't have any cream or more butter in it!
It's from the Delicious Magazine and is so perfect for guests - one of those dishes that seems like you've been in the kitchen slaving over it but really it's ready within 15minutes!
This recipe serves 6 but be careful with the dish you use, mine wasn't big enough and as a result the microwave was covered in gooey chocolatey sauce! So next time I'll definitely use a bigger, deeper dish to keep all the sauce in.
Ingredients -
60g butter
225g self-raising flour
200g caster sugar
60g cocoa powder
180ml milk
2tsp vanilla extract
175g soft brown sugar

Melt the butter in the microwave in a deep dish for a few seconds.
Then sift in the flour, sugar and 25g of the cocoa powder, add the milk and vanilla extract and mix well. Sprinkle soft brown sugar and the remaining 35g cocoa powder over the top and pour in 300ml boiling water - do not stir at this point!!
Cook in the microwave on high (800w) for 8 minutes. 
Allow to stand for 5minutes before serving with cream/ice cream - try to resist eating it all while serving!
