I do really miss eating Indonesian kind of pudding which made from agar-agar. And here I'm desperately seeking agar-agar and I only found gelatine or jelly :(. Even in Asian Grocery Store I couldn't find it! Do you have any idea what to substitute agar-agar instead of jelly or gelatine?
Anyway, I was so craving for Indonesian Chocolate Pudding and ended up with this recipe. Not bad, though! Eventhough it didn't use agar-agar ;). I really recommended this recipe especially for chocoholic. The chocolate pudding was so moist, with a touch of chocolate fudge sauce, it's heavenly melt in your mouth and impossible to resist.

Ingredients (SERVES 8) >> dita - I used cupcake pan :
185g self raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 rounded tbsp cocoa powder (dita - I used Cadburry Cocoa Powder)
150g caster sugar
2 extra large eggs, beaten

Prepare pudding :
Sieve all dry ingredients together into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre.
Pour beaten eggs into the well with the syrup, milk and oil. Gradually draw dry ingredients in from the sides of the bowl and beat to make a smooth batter.
Pour into prepared moulds and bake in preheated oven for about 25 to 30 minutes, until springy to the touch.
Prepare sauce :
Melt chocolate and cream together in a double boiler.
Gradually beat in the icing sugar until glossy.
To serve, un-mould puddings onto dessert plates and pour fudge sauce over and around the puddings.
