ChocPuds_6122Serves 6

½ cup Alison’s Pantry pitted prunes, chopped
1 cup water
100g dark chocolate drops
¼ cup black coffee
2 large eggs
½ cup firmly packed soft brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
¼ cup corn flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup cocoa powder, sifted
¼ cup Alison’s Pantry ground almonds
½ cup Alison’s Pantry walnuts, roughly chopped
50ml cream

  1. Place prunes and water in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat and simmer until the prunes are very tender and liquid has mostly reduced. Set aside to cool
  2. Preheat oven to 180C. Place chocolate and coffee in a heatproof bowl and set over a saucepan of gently simmering water to melt, or microwave in short bursts until melted. Stir until smooth then combine with the prune mixture
  3. Place eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer until thick and pale. Fold in the chocolate prune mixture. Sift corn flour, baking soda and cocoa together and gently fold into chocolate mixture to just combine. Fold in the almonds and walnuts
  4. Spoon the mixture into 6 x 1-cup capacity baking dishes, set on an oven tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of one comes out moist but clean. Drizzle with a little chocolate sauce and enjoy!
  5. To make chocolate sauce, melt chocolate and cream together and whisk until smooth. Serve warm

Tip: Prunes are the perfect natural sweetener, and evidence supports that a small serving of prunes may lower the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and type 2 diabetes.
