Serves 4 generously
For the peanut butter filling
3 rounded tbsp smooth peanut butter
100ml (3.5fl oz/scant 0.5 cup) hot water
For the chocolate pudding
4 tbsp self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp sunflower oil
Serve with a generous scoop of vegan ice cream.
Start by making the peanut butter filling. Use a fork to whisk together the peanut butter and hot water until combined and smooth.
For the chocolate pudding, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and sugar in a small, heatproof bowl. Spoon in the oil with 6 tablespoons of cold water and stir until combined.
Spoon out 1 rounded tablespoon of the cake mixture and pour the peanut butter filling into the resultant hole. Smooth over the removed cake mixture, covering any visible peanut butter.
Cook in an 850W microwave for 3 minutes, then allow to stand for 1 minute. Serve hot.

Unlike other many other noodle dishes, Singapore noodles are less greasy to eat and have a hint of spice. This dish is ready in under 15 minutes, for when you just fancy some spicy, veg-packed noodles.
There’s nothing more comforting than no-meat balls and a classic marinara sauce. Serve with egg-free spaghetti or loaded into sub rolls for the ultimate hot sandwich.
Cannoli are classic Italian sweet snacks, with a sweet case, creamy filling and pistachios. The tubes can be quite tricky to make, so I’ve created this cheat’s version, using baked mini tortilla wraps, flavoured with cinnamon sugar.
