Chocolate Blackberry Pudding

Chocolate Blackberry Pudding

Today marks the first day of winter! To help cope, we’re sharing a rich pudding to conclude our month of chocolate desserts. Because, what’s better than a warm bowl of gooey cake? Sarah of The Sugar Hit shares how to whip it up with only six ingredients…

This is a surprisingly elegant dessert that is ridiculously easy to pull together. The pudding, when baked, forms a crisp, delicate layer on top, while underneath lies a molten lagoon of dark, berry-studded chocolate goo. I love to serve this with sharp sour cream to cut through all the chocolaty richness, but a scoop of ice cream would be delicious too.

Recipe: Chocolate Blackberry Pudding
Serves: 6

You’ll need:
1 1/2 sticks butter
7 oz dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa is best)
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/3 cup flour
1 cup frozen blackberries

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Grease a deep rectangular baking dish or a 9-inch pie dish.

In a microwave-safe mixing bowl (that’s big enough to hold all of the ingredients later), melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring frequently.

Once the chocolate and butter is melted, let it cool slightly and then stir in all the remaining ingredients.

Scrape the mixture into your baking dish, and place in the oven for 20 minutes. The pudding should be set around the edges, with a distinct wobble in the middle.

Let cool for a few minutes before serving, preferably with a scoop of sour cream or ice cream.

    How am I only seeing this now! Looks delicious! Weekend plan for sure.

  2. Beth says...

    Made this tonight for Valentine’s Day–it was delicious! For anyone trying to cook individual portions, I made the batter using 1/3 of each ingredient (and slightly less of the sugar) and divided it into 2 ramekins, cooking at 380 for only about 15 minutes. It turned out perfectly! Extra gooey since that’s what I like :)

  3. This looks so good! I wouldn’t initially think chocolate & blackberries… but I suppose I can experiment in the spirit of desserts…

  4. Debbie says...

    Can I make this using fresh blackberries instead of frozen? Will it change the consistency?

    • Hi Debbie – fresh blackberries would be absolutely perfect, no problem at all, just start checking the pudding at about 17 minutes instead of the full 20. Undercooked is better than overcooked with this gooey pudding.

    I rarely ever bake, but I made this last night and it was a huge hit. Super easy and delicious! :)

  6. Ohhhh my godddddddd. This looks amazing. I cannot bake to save my life, but this looks divine!

  7. Lizzy says...

    Sounds amazing! Cazmina,I’m in the UK and had never heard of a stick of butter either! Google suggests this: 1 stick or 1/2 cup butter is equal to 4 ounces, or 113 grams. so about half a U.K. 250g standard pat of butter. Hope that sounds right!

    • 1 stick of butter is 4 ounces. ?

  8. Cazmina says...

    Mmm this looks good. I can’t wait to make it! One wee problem though… how much exactly is a “stick” of butter? Would it be possible to get a measurement by weight or cups? Outside of the US, butter tends to come in 125g or 250g packages.

    • Autumn says...

      1 stick = half cup. Hope it helps!

    • Cherie says...

      I always wondered this too! A quick google search says a stick of butter is 4oz or 113grams. So, I’m going with the 125g block :)

    • Ros says...


      1 stick of butter is about 4 ounces or 113 grams

  9. Sounds awesome! I can’t wait to try it

  14. Katie says...

    Pinned! Can’t wait to make this.

  15. Colleen says...

    tell us about that spoon!

    • Hi Colleen – I’m sorry to say that it’s a spoon that I stole from my Mum’s house when I moved out. I remember it had always been there in the cutlery drawer; I think it may even have been my grandmother’s. It was the spoon we always used in the sugar pot for making tea and coffee.
