  • 1 Chocolate cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons Caster sugar


  • Pre heat oven to 180*C
  • Make cake mix by directions on the back of the box, mixing by hand with a spoon.
  • Pour batter into an oven safe dish.
  • Into measured boiling water add cocoa and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar.
  • Pour the cocoa mix over the back of a tablespoon over the batter mix (so pouring doesn't pit the batter). The sauce will sink to the bottom, when cooked.
  • Bake for approx 25 mins checking with a skewer only the batter depth.
  • When done leave to cool for a few minutes. Dust with a little icing sugar if you wish. Serve with ice cream.


I use a $0.70 home brand cake mix for this.
This is easy and cheaper than a pudding box mix.
Can be frozen.
Can make as individual servings, may need extra sauce ingredients.  If individual leave room for ice cream in bowl when this is cooked.
