22 Sep
This chocolate Pudding is divine!!
choc-pudding
It is rich, chocolatey & decadent, yet still light & fluffy – the ultimate in dessert contradictions!
It is topped with thick & gooey chocolate sauce – which is just the way chocolate sauce should be!!
And all of this chocolate decadence is healthy!!
This entire pudding is sugar & dairy free.  The coconut oil & coconut kefir give the pudding a slight “coconut rough” taste &  mellow out the bitterness that you can sometimes get when using cacao.
This pudding is not for the faint hearted!! Or for the dieting!! But it is for all of those who love a good wholesome home-made chocolate pudding & are looking for a little chocolate comfort!
So what are you waiting for??
Make yourself some “chocolate comfort” in a bowl today.
 Sugar-free Vegan Spelt Cacao Self Saucing Pudding a’la Mama Going Natural
  • 1 c Spelt flour
  • 3 t baking powder (make your own)
  • 3 T cacao powder
  • 2 T water
  • 1/2 c dates
  • 2 sticks stevia
  • 80gm coconut oil
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 160ml coconut milk kefir (make as with dairy milk, just use coconut milk instead. It may need an additional 12 hours fermenting time. It can take 2 – 3 batches for your milk grains to adjust to the coconut milk, but even batches that do not ferment properly can still be used in cooking while your grains adjust to the coconut milk)

Chocolate Sauce

  • 2 T Cacao
  • 250ml water
  • 2 sticks stevia
  • 1 T Maple Syrup

Blend dates, coconut oil, stevia & coconut kefir in a food processor until smooth. Add the vanilla essence & cacao. Combine the spelt & baking powder, mixing in until all is combined to a thick batter consistency.

Heat your oven to 180 degrees. Place you pudding in the bottom of an oven proof dish or bowl. Sprinkle the 2T of cacao & 2 packets of stevia over the top of your pudding. Boil the kettle & pour over 250mls of hot water. Sprinkle the maple syrup over the top & bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer in the middle comes out clean.

During the baking your pudding will float up & the water will turn into a thick & gooey chocolate sauce that will be hidden under the pudding.

This recipe can also be made non-vegan substituting the coconut oil for butter & the coconut kefir for dairy kefir. I have tried it both ways & it tastes delicious, either way.

Go forth & enjoy some “chocolate comfort”

    This looks splendiferous! We might be heading towards summer down here in Northern Tasmania but I think we might be boycotting spring as it is rainy and grey today. I am not complaining when I can still cook gorgeous puddings and comfort foods in late September :). Cheers for sharing this wonderful pudding I really do appreciate your inventive recipes 🙂
