Steamed Chocolate Pudding

This chocolate pud is real old school comforter. It's also perfect for those who don't love Christmas pudding.

The other fabulous thing about this little pud is it's very adaptable. 

- Add orange or clementine zest for a chocolate orange pud. 
Add a shot of espresso to the pudding and one to the sauce for mocha.
- Replace a third of the cream for coconut milk for a coconut sauce and sprinkle with some toasted coconut shavings.  
170g S/R Flour
60g Cocoa
3 eggs
50g brioche bread crumbs
180g melted butter
100g chocolate chips *Dark or milk will work
70g caster sugar
100g soft brown sugar

300ml double cream
300g chocolate chips*

In a large bowl add the flour, breadcrumbs, sugars and cocoa, stir together and make a well in the centre. Whisk together the eggs pour into the centre along with the melted butter. With a large metal spoon fold together until smooth and glossy. 

Fold in the chocolate chips and spoon into a greased 2 pint pudding bowl. Cover with a disc of parchment and foil. Chill for at least an hour.
