2 cups plain (all-pur­pose) flour 4 tsp baking pow­der 50g co­coa pow­der 225g light brown sugar Pinch of salt 4 tsp No Egg com­bined with 1⁄3 cup wa­ter 200ml un­sweet­ened soy milk 160g but­ter*, melted, plus ex­tra for greas­ing Zest and juice of 2 large man­darins 300g choco­late chips*, melted 1 cup jarred or fresh pit­ted sour cher­ries, drained 50ml Coin­treau 2 cups boil­ing wa­ter Whipped cream* or vanilla ice-cream*, to serve

METHOD 1

Pre­heat the oven to 180°C.

Fold in the melted choco­late and cher­ries. 4 Ei­ther di­vide the mix­ture be­tween four in­di­vid­ual greased ramekins or pour it all into a round 25cm baking dish. Make sure to only fill the dishes three quar­ters of the way, so there is still room to pour the liq­uid over the top. 5 In a jug, whisk to­gether the Coin­treau, re­main­ing co­coa, re­main­ing brown sugar and the wa­ter. Stir un­til the co­coa and sugar have dis­solved, then gen­tly pour the liq­uid evenly over the pud­dings. 6 Bake for ap­prox­i­mately 15 min­utes for four small pud­dings, or ap­prox­i­mately 30 min­utes for one large pud­ding. It’s ready when it bounces back when pushed with a fin­ger­tip. Serve hot, topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream.
