These Gluten Free Chocolate Goo Puddings are kind of like Gluten Free Chocolate Fondants but less daunting to make. These gorgeous little individual Chocolate Goo Puddings come with their own personalities, I kid you not. I’ve tried to work out what it is, divine intervention, Mars and Venus being in line with Jupiter…I’m stumped.
Basically every time I make these chocolate cuties they’re never quite the same but all equally as delicious as the last. I’ve enjoyed a rich sponge-like outer shell with a soft gooey chocolate middle, and other times they’ve had a gooey bottom so when you turn them out they’re like an individual self-saucing sponge pudding, either way, they are delicious and if you don’t let on your guests will think they’re perfect. In fact, the last time I made these a guest said they were just like the GÜ Puddings you can buy in the shops – I’ll take that compliment any day!
On the day I made these beauties, the puddings were light and spongy on the outside and soft and gooey in the middle without feeling raw (which honesty I’m not always keen on) I’m pleased to tell you that the following Chocolate Goo Pudding recipe below has a vegan version in the notes, otherwise to make it dairy free you simple swap out the unsalted butter. Ready to be AMAZED….
…the Chocolate Goo Pudding you’re eyeballing right now is the vegan one. Uhuh, that’s right baby, no gluten, dairy or eggs in these babies and I have to say I personally think the vegan version turns out gooier than the egg version. I have used Lindt chocolate in this recipe which is not suitable for allergy sufferers as if clearly states ‘may contains’ on its packaging so please use a dark chocolate you are familiar with if this is an issue.

Easily the most gooey, delicious, chocolatey Chocolate Goo Pudding you'll ever make, this pudding is super simple to create, requires very few ingredients and is not only gluten free but can easily be made dairy free and vegan too.
- 150 g plain chocolate 70% cocoa works really well
- 50 g unsalted butter or a dairy free alternative
- 50 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs for vegan version see notes below
- 2 additional egg yolks
- 30 g plain gluten free flour I use Free From Fairy Flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.
Prepare 4 ramekins or mini pudding cups by thoroughly greasing them with butter or oil
- Melt the butter and plain chocolate in the microwave and mix to combine as
- Set aside to cool.
In a mixer, add the sugar and eggs and whisk on high until they change consistency to a light fluffy mixture that's double in size.
- Next add the melted chocolate mixture and sift in the flour and cocoa together, no need to remove the whisk attachment, keep whisking on low until the chocolate and flour have fully combined.
- Now spoon the mixture into each ramekin, they'll fill to approximately three quarters full.
When you're ready to bake these you'll need to add them to a roasting tin and fill the tin with warm (not boiling) water to about half way up the ramekins, this is to prevent the pudding from cooking too quickly and in turn creates the gooey centre.
Bake the puddings for 20 mins, to check to see if they're ready gently press your finger into the sponge and you should feel a slight resistance, if it feels and sounds like you're popping bubbles when you press give them 5 more minutes and repeat process in 5 mins. (this cooking process will depend on your oven)
Serve immediately with custard or cream
To make the vegan version (4 individual puddings):
5) measure 2tbsp ground chia seeds and 8tbsp water into the mixing bowl, add the caster sugar and ½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda. Whisk for 5 mins.
Follow point 6) onwards as normal BUT there is no need for a 'bain marie' aka tray of water for the vegan version, it's gorgeously gooey without the need for a bath!
Don’t forget it, pin it!
