Instructions

Microwave chocolate and spread in a large heatproof bowl on HIGH in 30 second bursts until melted. Stir in 1/4 cup sweetener until combined.
  2. Beat egg, egg white and 1 tbs milk until combined. Stir into chocolate mixture. Stir in sifted plain and self-raising flours and cocoa. Spoon mixture into prepared moulds.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes or until firm around edges and wobbly in centre. Stand for 1 minute. Run a knife around edges of moulds and invert onto serving plates. Serve immediately with the chai custard.
  4. To make chai custard, combine cornflour and spices with remaining milk and remaining sweetener in a small saucepan until smooth. Stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Set aside until just warm.

Notes

TIP: Don’t overcook the puddings or you will not get the ‘lava’ effect. They continue to cook slightly while standing. Not suitable to freeze. The custard can be made 2 days ahead.
