6.Place the sugar, cocoa, zest and juice in a heatproof jug; add 250ml of boiling water. Stir until the cocoa and sugar are dissolved.

Don’t worry about pouring runny liquid onto the batter. Once in the oven, the pudding will rise through the liquid and the liquid will develop into a sauce underneath it. You could use chocolate chips or chunks instead of chopped chocolate. The sauce thickens on cooling so this dish is best served warm.
