About: A fitness Instructor, active mother of 3

This magical dessert is made in minutes.

Soft Chocolate sponge cake on top has a surprise oozing pudding underneath.

It's like 2 desserts in one!

Who doesn't love Chocolate? Although this dessert looks decadent, it's not!

A touch of coffee enhances this chocolate on if you want to see how it's low in calories....

Sponge pudding has been a staple in most North American homes since the '50's...because it is inexpensive and has a sauce built into the dessert.

I hope this becomes one of your favourite desserts.

Enjoy with love!

4 tbsp. margarine

3/4 cup sugar

2 cup unsweetened Almond Milk or dairy milk

Whisk the egg into the liquids.

Sift the flour, baking powder and 1 tbsp of cocoa powder together.

Sprinkle onto the liquids and whisk to mix, the mixture will be lumpy.

Evenly distribute into ramekins.

Stir the remaining sugar and cocoa powder together.

Sprinkle over cake batter. Pour the remaining milk over the batter.

*When baking it will magically mix together creating a sauce on the bottom.

Place on a baking sheet to catch any spills and bake for 40-45 min until the liquid sinks and the cake rises. Remove and allow to cool for 5 min. The cake will drop.
