Chocolate and Cranberry Melting Puddings

5/5 - (3 votes)

These chocolate cranberry melting puddings are an idea I started playing with around Christmas time and they were a big hit with my family. My mum always buys cranberries over Christmas and this year I kept coming up with different recipe ideas to “use them up”, while she kept buying them to save for the cranberry sauce! It became the war of the cranberries! This recipe is a product of that time and is perfect for when you need a moment of cosy comfort and indulgence. These chocolate and cranberry cakes should be gooey and soft in the centre while holding their shape with a layer of glossy cranberries on top!

Makes: 4 puddings

Cook time: 7 minutes

Prep time: 15 minutes

For the chocolate pudding

90g dark chocolate

90g butter

3 eggs

90g caster sugar

60g plain flour

30g ground almonds

For the cranberry topping

200g cranberries

125g sugar

60ml water

  1. Preheat the over to 180°C. Line the bottom of the ramekins with a circle of greaseproof paper and grease the sides with butter.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pan place all your ingredients for the cranberry topping and boil on a medium heat. Your cranberries should burst open from their skins and then cook for a further 5 minutes until the mixture is thick and shiny.
  3. Leave the cranberries to cool and start making the chocolate mixture.
  4. Weigh your chocolate and butter into a heatproof bowl and melt over a Ban-Marie or in the microwave.
  5. Add your sugar to the chocolate and butter mixture and then add the eggs, flour and ground almonds.
  6. To assemble add 2 tablespoons of the cranberries to the bottom of each ramekin before filling to the top with your chocolate mixture.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes or until the top of each pudding is set and not sticky to the touch.
  8. Leave to cool before turning out. Enjoy with a spoon of crème fraiche!

It has two layers, the bottom is a rich dark chocolate cake and the top layer is shiny and deep red. The dessert is garnished with mint and there are some cranberries lying in front of it.)
