I’ll admit it, I’m human. And I’m female which means that sometimes I need chocolate, and I need it now. I’ve always got my not-so-secret stash of sugar-free dark chocolate in the pantry for when the need arises, but sometimes you need chocolate and comfort (there should be a word for that. Chomfort?)

Have you noticed that the comfort factor of chocolate is greatly enhanced when it’s warm and gooey? I’m right, aren’t I?

This self-saucing pudding is what you need in your life; rich fudgy pudding with a decadent chocolate sauce. The addition of the orange lifts the flavour to a whole new dimension.

It’s comfort food at its best, without a scrap of guilt. Yep, guilt-free chocolate (can you hear the angels singing?) and if you top it with some rich and creamy low carb ice cream? Well… This recipe can be scaled up and down depending on your numbers, but I can tell you that I saved one of these and reheated it in the microwave the next day and it was just as good.

Chocolate Sauce:

Note: You will only need half of the sauce. Store the remaining sauce in the fridge for up to a week and make another batch. You can use more sweetener in the pudding if you like. If you just started following a low-carb diet, then you may find some recipes not sweet enough. You can add a few extra drops of stevia or a little more erythritol or Swerve to suit your palate.

I wanted to ask about cocoa powder. It necessary to buy "raw"? I know you promote buying best organic quality, however from what I checked on Labels and one which you linking to and one (baking, basic one) from Tesco have a pretty similar carb/fibre statistics. I really want to stock my pantry with good, healthy stuff to shift from using carbs on the full go, its why I asking. I stopped using sugar over 3 years ago and for some time lived on sweeteners, My sweet-tooth is low atm, to be honest, however I'm known for baking cakes/cookies in family-work environment and I want to cut even this sugars/carbs on family occasions so I need to learn to bake again ;) just healthier. Thanks for so much work you done!


Hi Ewelina, I don't think you need to use "raw" cacao. I use raw cacao and unsweetened cocoa (Dutch process) powder interchangeably. I hope this helps 😊


I tried this recipe on weekend. I only have stevia in a drop bottle so I could not sweeten much but I found that  when is served an addition  of rich 50% cream will cut through bitterness of cacao. Overall, it's a nice recipe. The idea  of pouring a watery cacao on top before placing into oven proved to be the main trick to keep the pudding moist. Thank you for your creativity Naomi!


Thank you for your feedback Julia, I'm glad you liked it! 😊


This looks absolutely delicious! Definitely going to give this a try!
