Slow Cooker Chocolate Christmas Pudding …
Ingredients …
  • 1⅓ cup plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used raw cacao)
  • ⅔ cup castor sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ⅔ cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • icing sugar (to decorate)
Method …
  1. Spray the inside of an 850ml Pudding Steamer well with cooking spray. Place a small circle of baking paper in the base only of the Pudding Steamer by cutting a piece to fit.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the plain flour, cocoa powder, castor sugar and baking powder and mix until well combined.
  3. Add the dark chocolate chips and stir through.
  4. Combine the melted butter, Greek yoghurt, Golden Syrup and vanilla extract in a large jug and whisk until well combined.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined … don’t overmix.
  6. Pour the pudding mixture into the prepared Pudding Steamer, smooth the top with the back of a spoon and seal with the Steamer lid.
  7. Place the Pudding Steamer inside the slow cooker and pour enough boiling water to come approximately half way up the side of the Steamer.
  8. Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook the pudding for 3 hours on HIGH.
  9. Once done, remove the Pudding Steamer from the slow cooker, remove the lid and allow to stand for a couple of minutes. Place a serving plate on top of the steamer, turning it upside down to remove the pudding.
  10. Dust the pudding with a little icing sugar and place a sprig of Christmas holly on the top.
