Gran's Chocolate Sauce Pudding

This was a family favourite when I was a kid, it was my 4 children's favourite and now its a real favourite of the grandchildren. Mum's original was handwritten so have no idea where the original came from. Its a chocolate self saucing pudding, cheap to make and delicious.
