The proof is in the pudding

I ended up going with the Sausage Bake recipe from the cookbook for dinner lastnight (which was delicious). I didn't have any cherry tomatoes, so I substituted a tin of diced tomatoes instead, which still worked perfectly. It's a great one pot (one oven dish) recipe which made cleaning up a breeze.

While the Sausage Bake was in the oven, I whipped up the Self Saucing Chocolate Sponge pudding. My vintage pyrex bowl was a little small, so I just stood it in a small oven tray to bake (luckily it caught all of the overflow)....

The best bit about living alone - I get the whole pudding to myself!

Hmm will be making that one too! Great idea for the tomatos, haven't tried tinned before but I bet they go nice and sweet like the cherry ones.

There are lots of great things about living alone Cam... and you're right, not having to share a delicious dessert is one of them!

Mookah said...

Is it BYO King Island double cream? What time you want me there?

I always use tin tomatoes, cheap & easy.

OMG - I thought 'everyone' else was married with kids! I too live alone, and yep you don't have to share dessert, but you know what else? You can pig out on something & no one else knows #tincondensedmilkaddict#
