Clare and Bill’s Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

10 Jun

One of my new pleasures in life is swapping tried and tested recipes with girlfriends…

This is my friend Clare’s version of a Bill Granger recipe.

Clare is the quintesential wife and lady – minus the pathetic connotations which sometimes are associated with both of those labels! Clare is the girl you can always count on to give good food advice, and is always baking new and yummy things! I’m sure we’ll have the pleasure of seeing a lot of Clare’s culinary adventures on Eat Your Heart Out… I’m keen to share her beautiful hot crossed buns we enjoyed this year!

Back to Bill and Clare.
