Saucy Chocolate Puddings

For the puddings:-
125g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
4 tbsps cocoa powder
125g caster sugar
250ml milk
75g unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp rum or other drink
100g walnut pieces
For the Sauce:-
125g soft muscovado sugar
1.5 tbsps cocoa powder
150ml boiling water
Grease 4 to 6 teacups, according to size.
Preheat oven to 180'C/160'C fan.
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and beat in the wet ingredients until you have a smooth batter. Pour into teacups.
In a separate bowl mix together sugar and cocoa powder and sprinkle equally over the puddings. Pour the boiling water equally over the top of each pudding.
Sit on a baking tray and bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then top with lightly whipped double cream, flavoured with rum and sweetened with a sprinkling of caster sugar.
Adapted from "In the Mood for Food" which suggested 4 teacups but there was too much mixture for 4 teacups and the puddings overflowed slightly. Each portion was quite big!
