Ingredients

  • oil, for brushing
  • 85g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 40g cocoa
  • 40g ground almonds
  • 125g butter softened
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 Lindt milk chocolate balls

Method

  1. Ask your grown-up helper to switch the oven on to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Use a pastry brush to brush the muffin tin or pudding moulds with oil.

  2. Sift the flour with the baking powder and cocoa into a bowl, then stir in the ground almonds.

  3. Beat the butter with the sugar using a wooden spoon or electric beaters.

  4. Add the eggs and flour mix, and beat everything together. Add 1 tbsp water if the mixture is too thick to fall off the spoon.

  5. Spoon the mixture into the tins or moulds and level the tops. Push a chocolate into the middle of each one – but don’t push it right to the bottom.

  6. Ask a grown-up to put the puds in the oven for 20-25 mins. Leave for 10 mins or until cool enough to handle, then carefully turn out onto plates.
