Recipe: Melt in the middle peanut pudding

Melt in the middle puddings are so indulgent and delicious and i’ve been trying to recreate one for such a long time! I think i’ve finally done it here and it’s in peanut butter form which is even better, it honestly tastes quite like a peanut butter cup but without all the refined sugar. This would make a perfect dinner party pud or simply a yummy dessert on a weeknight as it’s so easy to make!

 

 

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 30g peanut flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small banana
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 30g peanut butter
  • 25g dark chocolate

Method:

  1. First, preheat the oven to 160 degrees then grease two ramekins or mini skillets with a little coconut oil to stop the pudding from sticking
  2. In a bowl, mash the banana until it is a puree and crack in the egg, mix well.
  3. Add the baking powder and flour and continue to mix until you have your cake batter
  4. Pour the batter into the ramekins evenly
  5. In a separate microwavable bowl, put the peanut butter and chocolate together and microwave for 40-60 seconds until the peanut butter is runny and the chocolate has started to melt (it doesn’t have to have melted completely, in fact it’s better if it hasn’t!)
  6. Mix the PB and chocolate and evenly spoon into the centre of each pudding
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until slightly risen and until the tops are golden brown
  8. Remove and enjoy warm for that melting middle effect!

 

Obviously you could change up the peanut for other nuts if you have the flour/butter to hand but this is just right for me and tastes like a peanut butter cup in the middle which I love! Let me know if you try it!
