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
- 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
- In a bowl, mash the banana until it is a puree and crack in the egg, mix well.
- Add the baking powder and flour and continue to mix until you have your cake batter
- Pour the batter into the ramekins evenly
- 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!)
- Mix the PB and chocolate and evenly spoon into the centre of each pudding
- Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until slightly risen and until the tops are golden brown
- 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!
