The Great Popsy Bake Off


Do you and your littles love to bake together? Do they love licking the spoon and bowl out? Then read on to see our favourite chocolate puddings.


Tomorrow is a national chocolate pudding day in the USA. I for one think that is an amazing national day to have! Chocolate after all is a vegetable, it must count as one of our five a day right? Just kidding (sort of) but it does mean that this is a sweet treat that can be enjoyed in moderation.


Today we thought we'd give you some ideas for bakes you can make to celebrate chocolate pudding day tomorrow AND there might be some social media fun to be had this weekend.


We are off to channel our inner Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

Method
  • Line a muffin tin with paper cases. Sift the cocoa powder into a bowl, pour in the boiling water and mix into a thick paste. Add the remaining cake ingredients and mix with an electric hand whisk (or beat with a wooden spoon)

  • Divide the mixture equally between the 12 paper cases. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (400°F, Gas mark 6) for about 12-15 minutes until well risen and springy to the touch. Cool in the cases on a wire rack.
