School pudding favourite – Chocolate concrete.

If you went to school in the U.K – chances are you had chocolate concrete for pudding at some point, it’s the Queen of all desserts despite the rather unappealing name. On a whim I decided to make some today using a recipe from one of my friends. I was amazed at how quick and easy it is to make, so I’m going to share the love with you guys and pass the recipe on so we can all reminisce and stuff our faces.



200g plain flour.
200g granulated sugar (plus a little extra for decoration)
50g cocoa powder (strictly not drinking chocolate – apparently this is important)
100g butter.


Preheat your oven to 180c. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl and add the sugar, mix well. Melt the butter and stir in. Once it starts to resemble crumble, tip it into a lined baking tray and press down so it’s all compact. Bake for around 20 minutes, eat straight away if you prefer it a bit softer or leave it to cool down if you like it hard (oo er). Sprinkle some granulated sugar on top and serve with custard – you could even make it pink with a little food colouring if you really want to make it a throwback dessert.

Did you have this at school? If you went to school somewhere other than the U.K what kind of desserts did you have? I’m genuinely intrigued!

Now that I know how easy this is to make, I’ll definitely be doing it more often. Cya diet.
