The nostalgia started last week when I was sat outside of Josephs classroom which is right next to the cafeteria, we was waiting at a parents evening when I smelt it... there I was minding my own business and bamm! I was taken back to 1990, sat in the dinner hall with my Michael Jackson hair and my oversized school cardigan sat opposite my best friend eating his own snot.
I was eating Chocolate concrete and pink custard for school pudding!!
I asked the hubby if he'd had the same flash back...
"what's chocolate concrete?"
I knew then I HAD to make him some, he had to try it, how could he have already gone through nearly 31 years of his life without trying it!?
So this weekend I started on my blog series "old school puddings" and the one to kick it off has to be chocolate concrete and pink custard!
All you need to make this is 5 Ingredients.
225g self raising flour
25g Co-co powder
First pre heat your oven to gas mark 3 or 170c then melt the butter down and then add the sugar and mix together really well.
Then add flour and coco and mix well until a stiff consistency, then add the egg.
Next mix all together and roll into a ball.
Grease proof a dish and spread mixture into the dish, spreading it out to the sides with a spoon.
Place it in the middle of the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Take it out and sprinkle it with sugar and leave to cool.
Once cool cut into portions ( I like mine BIG!)
To make the custard pink I just added a drop of pink colouring to my custard and a dash of strawberry essence.
That's it! So easy and the Joseph loved helping me. It was a hit with the Hubby, just a shame its 25 years too late!!
What was your favourite school pudding?
