Chocolate lava pudding recipe

To turn this into a delicious mocha lava pudding, swap the boiling water in the sauce for strong, freshly brewed coffee. 

Timings

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cooking time: 35 minutes

Serves

Two

Ingredients

  • 25g butter, plus extra for the dish
  • 20g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg yolk, any size
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25g self-raising flour, or 25g plain flour plus ¼ tsp baking powder

For the topping:

  • 3 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 4 tsp cocoa powder, plus a little extra to finish

For the sauce:

  • 120ml boiling water, or a mixture of boiling water and coffee
  • Double cream, or whipped cream, to serve

Method

  1. Lavishly butter an ovenproof baking dish of about 500ml capacity – I use a shallow dish about 20cm square. Melt the butter, chocolate and half the cocoa powder together in a medium jug or bowl in the microwave and allow to cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar, milk, egg yolk and vanilla, then the flour and a pinch of salt. Transfer to the prepared dish.
  2. Mix the topping ingredients in a small bowl with a fork, and sprinkle evenly over the pudding. Finally, pour the boiling water gently over the top.
  3. Bake this unpromising mixture at 160C/140C fan/Gas 3 for about 35 minutes, until the pudding is firm in places, and gently bubbling. Leave for five minutes, dust lightly with cocoa powder, if liked, then serve with cream.
