Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

Andrea Brittain in Australia e-mailed this to me after we got home from living in Darwin in 2000, when I looked in every recipe book I had and couldn't find it, . It is magic: the sauce starts on the top, and ends up, after cooking, on the bottom. This recipe is in chart form so you can make it for as many or few as you like. It is addictive!
