Tips:

  • Creative Gourmet frozen Raspberries team perfectly with indulgent dark chocolate in this irresistible pudding. It’s so easy to prepare and there’s no need for electric beaters. This impressive dessert is best eaten within 10 minutes or so from coming out of the oven. I serve it with vanilla ice-cream. Forget the kilojoules, it’s winter after all!
  • This cooks beautifully in an oval 6-cup dish (about 25cm long x 16cm wide x 6cm deep). Replace the raspberries with Creative Gourmet frozen Blackberries or Mixed Berries if liked.
