Darina Allen's Gluten-free Chocolate Fudge Pudding

This recipe comes from Darina Allen's book, Healthy Gluten-free Eating (Kyle Cathie, £12.99). Add some freshly roasted hazelnuts and a dash of Frangelico to the whipped cream for extra pizzazz.



Preheat the oven to gas mark 6, 400°F, 200°C. Cut the chocolate into small pieces and melt with the butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. As soon as the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract, then stir in ¼ pint (150 ml) of warm water and the sugar. Continue to mix until smooth. Lightly beat the egg yolks and whisk them into the chocolate mixture. Fold in the sifted rice flour and the gluten-free baking powder, making sure there are no lumps.

Whisk the egg whites in a large, scrupulously clean bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold gently into the chocolate mixture and pour into the greased pie dish or ramekins.Put the pie dish into a bain marie of hot water and bake for 10 minutes (for the single dish), then reduce the temperature to gas mark 3, 325°F, 170°C, for a further 20-30 minutes. If you are using ramekins, the puddings will be cooked in about 15 minutes at gas mark 6, 400F, 200C. The pudding should be firm on top but still soft and fudgy underneath. Dust with icing sugar and serve hot, warm or cold with softly whipped cream.
