  • 50g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 4 scoops coffee or vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)
  • 4 tsp coffee liqueur, to serve (optional)


  1. Measure the milk in a large jug, then blend with the prunes and coffee in a food processor until smooth. Add the butter, sugar, egg, almonds, cocoa, flour and a pinch of salt, then blitz again to make a thick batter.

  2. Scrape evenly and cleanly (don’t take the mixture up the sides) into 4 x 175ml ramekins (don’t use any with metal on them!). Cook in the microwave, spaced round the edge of the turntable, on Medium for 6 mins. The puddings will still look a bit moist, but that’s fine. Stand for 5 mins, then serve topped with a scoop of ice cream and a little liqueur, if you like.

Microwave ovens vary in power. I can't see the specified power rating of the oven anywhere in this recipe. It's not enough to say microwave it on medium, because 'medium' varies depending on the power of the oven!

I made this recipe and the puddings came out dryer and denser than expected - more like chocolate fudge cakes. They were still nice but I think I would only microwave for 5 minutes next time to give a moister pudding.

These look great! However, with microwave recipes, it would be really helpful if you could give the power level as a wattage for those of us who are less confident with cooking this way. Thanks.

Hi canterburybelle, thank you for your feedback most microwave ovens operate at high (100%) medium (50%) low (30%). This equates to 800-850W (high), 400-425W (medium) or 250-255W (low). Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we are always updating our guides and techniques pages so we will consider adding information on microwave use in the future.

This only equates as you describe for an 800 to 850 watt oven! What about those of us still using a 650 watt one? You really need to be more precise, particularly with this sort of I am glad to hear you will be updating your pages to take account of microwave use. However it would be even more helpful to include more specific information in the recipes themselves - I want to cook, not spend time looking up instructions. Good recipes give the different temperature settings for electric, fan-assisted and gas ovens, so you should be able to give the wattage of the microwave oven used in all microwave recipes.
