Chewy on the top, soft in the middle, with a layer of the delicious sauce waiting for you at the bottom makes – few puddings can top this one! Serve with a drizzle of homemade custard for extra indulgence on a cold night.

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

2. In a bowl, mix together the almond meal, stevia, 1/2 a cup of the cacao, baking powder and salt.

3. Add the coconut oil, milk and vanilla, whisking until smooth.

4. Pour into a baking dish and spread evenly.

5. Sprinkle the remaining cacao powder and coconut sugar over the batter to create a ‘crust’ on top.
