If you need a quick chocolate fix like me...this is the dessert for you!! Its so easy to prepare you can get your kids to do it!
This is great with vanilla ice cream or just plain whipped cream! The beautiful marriage of chocolate and vanilla cant go wrong.
A word of caution for the sweet tooth, this dessert is not overly sweet as its best served with cream/ice cream. So if you are having this on its own, you would need to increase the sugar a bit more to suit or dust the top with a bit of icing sugar and or serve with some strawberries.
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
80 g butter melted
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg (lightly beaten)
2 cups boiling water
