3/4 cup milk
75g butter, chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
100g dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cups boiling water
1. Place milk and butter in a large 8 cup-capacity, microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high (100%) for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring halfway through cooking, or until butter has melted. The dish shouldn't be too warm for your child to touch - but make sure you check first. Some microwave safe dishes do heat up alot.

|Spooning over the brown sugar cocoa mix|
4. Pour boiling water over the back of a large metal spoon to cover batter (this step should only be done by an adult or an older child under adult supervision).
5. Place dish on an upturned microwave-safe plate. Cook, uncovered, on medium (50%) for 10 to 13 minutes or until a skewer inserted into edge of pudding comes out clean. This time really depends on how powerful your microwave is. Ours took only 91/2 minutes to be ready so keep an eye on the pudding towards the end. You don't want to overcook it or the pudding will be dry.
6. Set aside for 5 minutes.
7. Serve with low fat ice-cream or low fat custard.
