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.

I have a similar recipe but I usually only cook them for 15 minutes at the most. If you want a more goey middle then put them in the fridge before cooking them. You will then get a crispy top, a soft outside and a lovely goey middle.

Yummy and very simple to make (althoug I am an adult so I should be able to master this children's recipe!). it definitely cooking for less time than it said though- i checked at 12 minutes and they were ready at 14.

Can these puddings be frozen?

Hi lydiasutcliffe thanks for your question. These puddings are best served warm shortly after baking so that the centre is full of warm, melted chocolate. Freezing them after baking and then reheating would mean that the chocolate wouldn't melt again in the same way so it's best not to. Alternatively you could try preparing the puddings up to the end of step 5 and freezing them in their moulds before baking, then defrost overnight in the fridge before baking. However, we haven't tested freezing this recipe so cannot guarantee perfect results. 

If you're looking for a similar dessert which can be frozen try this chocolate pear pudding http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/squidgy-chocolate-pear-pudding hope this helps.
