Now that we are leaning towards a "natural" diet, I try to prepare most of the foods at home.... specially the junk foods. At least I know that we are not eating any preservatives and unwanted chemicals the names of whose I had studied years ago in organic chemistry. Like Michael Pollan says, "Eat all the junk foods you want as far as you prepare it at home."
So, today I prepared this gooey dessert which I don't know should be called pudding or not because it has more of a cake texture than pudding. Well, what's in a name as far as my boys devour it!
For the batter:
All purpose flour: 1cup
Baking powder: 2 tsps
Cocoa powder: 3 tsps
Salt: 1/4 tsp
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Butter: 2 tbsps, melted
Milk: 1/2 cup
Yogurt: 1 1/2 tsps.
Vanilla: 1 1/2 tsps
For the sauce:
Sugar: 1/2 cup (It was a little too sweet for me, but everyone else thought it was perfect)
Cocoa powder: 3 tbsps
Coffee powder: 1tsp (optional) I made them with and without coffee powder. My boys preferred the ones without.
Water: 1 cup
How to proceed:
1. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F.
2. Sift the dry ingredients.
3. Add the butter, milk, vanilla and yogurt until well combined.
4. Grease your ramekins and spoon the batter in them. Fill a little less than half way.
For the sauce:
Mix all the ingredients.
Pour the sauce over the batter. Do not mix it. Do not fill more than 3/4 of the ramekin.
Place the ramekins on a baking tray to catch spills like pictured below or else you will have an oven clean up job ready for you.
Let it cool for 10 minutes and then dig into this yummy dessert.
