Quick bakes: chocolate pudding

7 Apr

Despite a scrummy Sunday dinner this evening, I had a little bit of room left for pudding but no pudding to speak of.

Nonsense, I thought. I have a cupboard full of ingredients.

And so I turned to my Good Food app in the hope of it pointing me in the right direction.

I found chocolate muffins with hot chocolate custard.

Serves 6
1tbsp cocoa powder
100g self raising flour
50g golden caster sugar
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 egg
2tbsp sunflower oil (plus extra for greasing muffin tin)
100ml skimmed milk
2 pots low fat custard
25g dark chocolate, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 170C (150C fan) and grease a six hole muffin tin.
2. Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together then form a well in the middle.
3. Mix milk, oil and egg in a jug then pour into the dry ingredients. Beat together until mixed then pour into muffin tin.
4. Bake for 15mins or until risen and firm to the touch (I took them out at 13 and they were perfect). Turn out on wire rack and transfer to bowl.
5. Heat custard in pan then mix in the chocolate until smooth. Pour over muffin and enjoy 🙂


Surprisingly easy and completed in under 30 minutes! Oh and only 215kcal each too!

I’ll definitely be baking these again.
