Quince and chocolate pudding


This is a lovely winter treat using slow-poached quince.

You'll need

1 tbsp golden syrup 1 poached quince, sliced 70 gm dark chocolate (66% cocoa solids), chopped 120 gm softened butter 120 gm raw caster sugar ½ tsp vanilla extract 200 gm self-raising flour, sieved 30 gm Dutch-process cocoa, sieved 1 tsp baking powder, sieved 4 eggs, lightly beaten 160 ml milk To serve: pouring or thickened cream, or ice-cream   Chocolate sauce 150 ml pouring cream 20 gm butter, softened 70 gm dark chocolate (66% cocoa solids)

Method

  • 01
  • Pour golden syrup into the base of a 1.5-litre pudding basin that’s been buttered, floured and lined on the base with baking paper. Arrange quince on top.
  • 02
  • Melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in an electric mixer until pale and creamy (2-4 minutes). Add flour, cocoa and baking powder, then egg and milk alternately, a little at a time. Add chocolate and beat until smooth. Transfer to prepared basin, smooth top and cover basin tightly with baking paper. Cover with a double layer of foil, secure with kitchen twine and place in a large saucepan with a cloth lining the base. Add boiling water to come halfway up sides of basin, cover with a lid and cook over medium-high heat, adding more water if necessary until puffed and pudding feels firm (2 hours).
  • 03
  • For chocolate sauce, combine cream and butter in a saucepan, bring to the boil, then add chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Keep warm (see note). Serve pudding hot with sauce and cream or ice-cream.
Note If the sauce cools, reheat gently over a saucepan of simmering water.
