Snickers Self Saucing Pudding

W I C K E D   W I N T E R   P U D

It is almost a year since I first saw a recipe for a Snickers pudding in the August 2016 edition of delicious. magazine. It was filed away in the recesses of my brain for the right chocolaty moment. A couple of weeks ago on a really cold day when the family was in the mood for peanuts & chocolate I pulled out the delicious. mag & converted the recipe to gluten free. Of course it took a couple of trials before everyone was happy (needed more cocoa, needed more sauce, needed more peanuts, needed more caramel, needed to be more).   


Ingredients

Dry ingredients

115 g Bakers’ Magic gluten free flour

½ tsp Baking powder

20 g Skim milk powder

75 g Caster sugar

20 g Cocoa

¼ tsp Salt


Wet ingredients

75 g Butter

100 g Sour cream

30 g Milk

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 Egg

65 g Crunchy peanut butter


100 g Milk chocolate chips

200 g Demera sugar

300 g Thickened cream

1 Cup Boiling water


Extra cocoa & roughly chopped salted peanuts

Sugar, Cream & Water - This amount makes a lot of sauce for the pudding. My daughter was extremely pleased with this amount, I thought it was too sweet (but I still ate it willingly :) ). I have made the pudding with half the amount of sauce and it is fine. I wouldn't make it with less than half the amount specified. 

Method 

Turn oven on to 160 C. Grease a 2 L casserole dish. 

Mix together the dry ingredients. I usually blitz it in a food processor. 

Soften/melt the butter & then combine it with the rest of the wet ingredients. 

Bring the cream to the boil, add in the hot water & set it aside.

Mix together the dry ingredients & wet ingredients. Stir in the milk chocolate chips. Transfer the mix to the casserole dish.

Sprinkle the demera sugar over the top. Gently pour over the hot water/cream mix.

Bake for approx. 1 hr. Bring out of the oven & cool for 5 mins. Depending on whether all the sugar has dissolved the crust may be a little caramelised in places. Dust the top with cocoa, sprinkle on the peanuts & serve with cream and/or ice-cream.

Simply enjoy!
