Chocolate Pudding in a mug

My children love hot chocolate. If I’ll allow it, they would start every day with a mug full, but I somehow think all that sugar is not a good way to start a day, but with this extreme cold weather we are experiencing, I find it more and more difficult to say “No!”. This week while the rest of Cape Town spend their days under  blankets or in front of a fireplace, my son played water polo and he needed some sweet comfort chocolate  pudding in a mug……
I have made a self-saucing chocolate pudding before, but this time, I needed more warmth and more comfort in that pud. If I think of winter spices and flavors, the first that comes to mind are ginger, cinnamon, cloves and allspice and nutmeg. I could not possibly put all those spices in one pudding, but it was darn difficult to choose so I chose my favorite ones, which were clove, cinnamon and ginger. All you need is a little of each spice and your chocolate pudding will be different and oh so comforting!

Chocolate Pudding 
makes 12 mugs or one big  Pyrex (20 x 25 cm) dish full


100 g butter – melted
250 ml sugar
50 ml cocoa powder
220 g  self-raising flour
1 t fine ginger
½ t fine clove
½ t fine cinnamon
1 t baking powder
2 ml salt
100 ml milk
5 ml vanilla extract

250 ml light brown sugar
125ml white sugar
100 ml cacao
500 ml boiling water

Pre-heat oven to 180 C. Add the sugar and cocoa to melted butter in a mixing bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, spices and salt and mix. Add the milk and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into 12 small mugs that has been prepared with Spray ‘n Cook or the Pyrex dish. Mix the brown sugar, white sugar and cocoa and sprinkle over the batter in the mugs or Pyrex dish. Pour some boiling water over each pudding and bake for 40 minutes if you do it as a whole pudding in the Pyrex dish or about 15 minutes if you do individual portions. Serve with hot custard, cream or ice-cream.

    What are the volume measurements of everything? I don’t have a kitchen scale so 100g doesn’t do much for me.
