This may not be a looker, but this vegan chocolate pudding is delicious, decadent and definitely a winner if you're looking to impress. Don't be put off by the unorthodox method here, the boiling water on top somehow makes its way to the bottom of the cake and transforms into the silkiest, most chocolatey rich sauce.


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Combine all the wet ingredients for the cake batter. In a large mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients then fold the wet into the dry until fully combined.

Grab a 10x7inch (approximately) oven proof dish, and tip the raspberries or cherries into the bottom. Spread them evenly then pour over the cake batter. Combine the cocoa powder and brown sugar for the topping then sprinkle it over the batter in an even layer.

Pour the boiling water on top of sugar cocoa mixture using an overturned spoon to slow the pour and stop the water going straight through the batter. Carefully lift and place into the oven for 30 minutes.

The cake should be firm on top with a glossy sauce underneath. Dust the whole thing with icing sugar and serve with some vegan ice cream. Enjoy!
