Looking for an easy Valentine’s dessert? Our caramel lava puddings can be made ahead and only need 10 mins prep. Best of all? There’s a salted caramel Lindor hidden inside.

Serve as part of a 1-hour Valentine’s menu for two, with cheesy scallop gratins to start, followed by truffled mushroom pasta with burrata.

Ingredients

  • 70g softened unsalted butter
  • 70g dark brown soft sugar
  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • Dash vanilla extract
  • 70g plain flour
  • 2 Lindt Lindor Salted Caramel Truffles or other caramel chocs
  • Thick cream/ice cream to serve

You’ll also need

  • 2 x non-stick mini pudding moulds (about 5cm x 8cm/225ml), lightly greased

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 160ºC fan/gas 4. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar with a pinch of salt until soft and combined. Beat in the egg, the vanilla and then the flour. The mixture should be spoonable.
  2. Divide most of the mixture between the moulds, then pop a Lindor (or other chocolate) in the middle and cover with the rest. Wipe clean the inside edge of the moulds using your thumb or a clean cloth (to help the puds rise – see Make Ahead). Bake for 18 minutes, then turn out and serve with cream or ice cream.

  1. Really easy to make, went down a treat with the family. They turned out the moulds beautifully and looked impressive! Only niggle, not quite enough of a melty middle. Might add two lindor balls next time!

  2. These made a lovely and less rich alternative to chocolate fondant. They were very easy to make and turned out of the mould without any problem. The whole family loved them and I think they will become a Sunday lunch regular. Next time I’m going to try serving with some caramelised banana. I found they needed an extra couple of minutes as the sponge mix wasn’t quite cooked in 18 mins.
