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.
