Ingredients

For the hot chocolate custard

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Brush 6 holes of a muffin tin with a drop of oil. Sieve the cocoa into a large bowl, then add the rest of the dry ingredients. Stir to combine, then make a well in the centre.

  • STEP 2

    Beat the milk, egg and oil together in a jug, pour into the well, then stir quickly to make a batter. Spoon into the muffin tin, then bake for 15 mins or until risen and firm to the touch. Heat the custard in the microwave according to instructions, or in a pan, then tip in the chopped chocolate and stir until smooth. Turn the puddings into bowls and pour the custard over.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE THEM ZINGY

Lemon curd cakes with custard: To make your own luscious lemon puddings, omit the cocoa and add an extra tbsp flour and the zest of 1 lemon. Once golden, top with a small blob of lemon curd and serve with plain low-fat custard.
