Cookie Bake Dessert

Create an incredibly delicious and delectable dessert which will wow your taste buds. This simple recipe will take less then 10 minutes and it'll be better then anything you can get at a restaurant. Making a pudding in individual dishes looks sophisticated at any dinner party.

2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
2 tbsp plain flour
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp course sea salt
A handful of dark chocolate chips

Place butter, sugar and golden syrup into a oven proof dish. I have this skillet from Waitrose which is the perfect size for one person.

Place ingredients in the oven at 180C for 1 minute or until the butter has melted.

Add in the dry ingredients and the vanilla essence. 

Stir until mixture is smooth with no lumps. Flatten off the top to give and even layer of mixture.

Sprinkle on the chocolate chips trying to distribute them as evenly as possible. Place back in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes depending on how deep your dish is, until the top is golden brown but the centre is still sort.

Leave the cookie to stand for a couple of minutes to give it a chance to firm up a little, then top with a scoop of ice cream of freshly whipped cream.

You can make this recipe vegan by swapping the butter for coconut oil and the chocolate chips for cacao nibs. Both ways taste great and you'll still get the soft gooey centre!
