Steamed Chocolate Pudding

My first steamed pudding!  And it turned out perfectly.

I poured the batter into a glass oven dish - placed it in a pot with boiling water up to the middle of the glass dish.  

This is a melt-in-the-mouth dessert and just right for our rainy weather nowadays. 

Steamed Chocolate Pudding

100g Chocolate (dark or milk)
225ml Milk
5ml Vanilla
80ml Sugar
200ml Sour Cream
6 Crustless Whitebread slices, crumbed  (150g)
25g Ground Almonds
3 Large Eggs, separated

150 ml Evaporated Milk
2 (55g each) Bar-One Chocolate Bars    {or a toffee-ish chocolate you can melt}
4 blocks Dark Chocolate

1.) Place the Chocolate, Milk, Vanilla and Sugar in a medium pot over medium heat - simmer and stir until the Sugar and Chocolate has melted - remove from heat and stir in the Sour Cream until well combined and smooth.
2.) Mix the Breadcrumbs and the Almonds in a medium mixing bowl - add the chocolate mixture and stir through - beat the Egg yolks lightly and mix in with the Bread/Chocolate mixture.
3.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff - fold gently into the batter.
4.) Spray an oven dish with Spray 'N Cook - pour the batter into this dish - cover with double folded aluminium foil (use string if necessary to seal).
5.) Use a large pot - place the oven dish in the pot and fill with boiling water up to the middle of the oven dish - cover with lid and simmer for 1 1/4 hours over low heat  {check on the water now and then and add boiling water if needed}
6.) Remove the oven dish from the pot and carefully remove the aluminium foil - turn out on a serving dish or plate.
7.) Place the Evaporated Milk, Bar-One (broken into pieces) and the Dark chocolate in a small pot - simmer and stir until the chocolate has melted - pour this sauce over the pudding.

Serve hot with ice-cream or whipped cream.
