MELTING MOCHA PUDDING
You'll need:1 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
2 Tablespoons dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
3/4 cup plant milk of choice (I used vanilla soy)
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 Tablespoon ground flax mixed with 3 Tablespoons boiling water
1 Tablespoon instant coffee
2 Tablespoons muscavado or brown sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and chocolate chips (if using). Stir until well combined and no clumps left in the cocoa.
Gently stir in the milk, applesauce and flax mixture. Stir until the dry ingredients are just wet - do not over stir.
Lightly spray a pudding dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the pudding mixture into the dish and tap til evenly distributed.
In a measuring jug combine the coffee and sugar and pour over the boiling water & stir until coffee and sugar have dissolved.
Then pour the coffee mixture over the pudding.
Bake in a preheated 160C oven for 40 minutes until pudding is cooked through & coffee mixture has soaked through to the bottom creating a 'sauce'. You will see it bubbling out the sides when the pudding is cooked.
It may appear 'uncooked' but that is just the sauce. A skewer poked into the center will still come out clean.
Now admittingly these are not the greatest pictures! This is definitely not a 'pretty' pudding - but then again not too many are! None the less, it is still delicious!
In the picture below I wanted to show the 'sauce' that is on the bottom of the pudding.
You can substitute coffee essence in place of the coffee if you are willing to share this with your children ;-)
