Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180deg C.

    2.    Coarsely chop dates.

    3.    Add flour, cocoa, and caster sugar - mix for 20 seconds on Speed 6.

    4.    Add vanilla, milk (or water), egg and butter together in a jug.  Mix on speed 8 for 30-40 seconds until light and fluffy. 

    5.   Pour into Pyrex dish.  Make sure you select a dish that is large enough that the batter will only fill up halfway up the sides.


  2. Sauce
  3. 6.    Make sauce: Use Thermomix (without having to wash it out) and combine the brown sugar and cocoa.  Add boiling water and espresso coffee and mix on 4 at 100deg C for about 2-3 minutes until all sugar and coffee has been dissolved.

    7.   Pour over the batter carefully using the back of a metal spoon.


    8.   Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted halfway into the pudding comes out clean and sauce bubbles around the edges.

    Serve with cream or vanilla ice cream.


Accessories you need



I am always looking for non-dairy desserts and this one is perfect.  I just substitute water for the milk and use non-dairy butter.

    The pudding was light, fluffy and delicious, the only problem was that the sauce disappeared... I also chopped my dates for 10 seconds on speed 6 at the beginning of recipe.

  • Yummo.... made these in 10

    Submitted by Me123 on 4. June 2012 - 12:54.

    Yummo.... made these in 10 individual ramekins and cooked for about 35 mintues and it worked fine. Put a scoop of vanilla icecream on top of each. Next time I would probably stretch it to 12 ramkeins as they were fairly full and had to just balance the icecream on top. Thanks for sharing you recipe.
