Tasha will be at the new Trends & Tastes show at the Durban Exhibition Centre from the 18th till the 21st March 2011. It is a long weekend so why not take an easy meander down to Durban where you can enjoy the splendid display of home ware, demonstrations, food and wine. Drop by the Tasha's Fantastic Fudge stand to say hello to Hilton's very own fudge diva.
Tasha shared a successful recipe with everyone in her latest newsletter and we have published it below for you to enjoy. Tasha recently made it for a group of her sons varsity friends, there was not a drop left. They had already polished off a roast, with potatoes and vegetables before, so this is a definite winner. With winter coming you will want to give this chocolate pudding a try.
DELECTABLE CHOCOLATE PUDDING
1 cup self raising flour (or cake flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder)
1 table spoon cocoa
Half a cup sugar
60g butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
200g fudge, chopped fine

1 cup brown sugar
1 and a half cups boiling water.
Preheat oven to 180. Grease a 2 litre heat proof dish. Sprinkle the chopped fudge at the bottom of the dish. Sift the flour, cocoa into a large bowl, add the sugar. Make a well in the centre.
In a jug, beat the egg; add the milk, melted butter and vanilla essence. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon mix the ingredients until well incorporated and lump free. Pour into prepared dish. Combine the brown sugar and cocoa and sprinkle evenly over the mixture. Gently pour the boiling water over the chocolate batter. Bake for 30 ' 40 minutes or until pudding is cooked ' a cake like mixture will be on top with a chocolate fudgy sauce underneath.
