    • For the pud:
    • 175g (6oz) gluten-free plain white flour
    • 2 level tbsp gluten-free cocoa powder
    • 2 level tsp gluten-free baking powder
    • 100g (3½ oz) Fruisana fruit sugar (alternatively, use 125g/4oz caster sugar)
    • 125g (4oz) dairy-free spread
    • 2 medium eggs
    • For the sauce:
    • 450ml (¾ pint) soya chocolate milk
    • 2tbsp cornflour
    • 18cm (7in) square tin, lined with bakewell paper


    • Set the oven to moderate, 180°C/350°F/gas 4.

    • Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, spread, eggs and 2tbsps warm water, and beat well until smooth.

    • Spoon into the tin and smooth the top.

    • Bake for 30 mins until risen. The surface will crack a little.

    • Cool the pud in the tin for 5 mins.

    • To make the sauce: Mix a little of the milk with the cornflour and bring the rest of the milk to the boil.

    • Pour some of the hot milk into the cornflour mixture, mix well, then pour this back into the hot pan. Bring to the boil, stirring, until the sauce thickens.

    • Add a little fruit sugar to taste, if you wish.

    • Cut the pud into squares and serve with the hot chocolate sauce.
