WARM HONEY CUP PUDDINGSThe name alone sounds appetising. I made these classic Greek desserts for a supper party recently and they went down a treat.

Easy and can be made ahead.

Warm Honey Cup Puddings 

Ingredients serves 2 but easily doubled
2 tbsp butter, melted, plus extra for greasing the cups
2 tsp clear honey, plus extra for drizzling
50g self-raising flour
25g ground almonds
50g light muscovado sugar
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 egg
85g Greek yogurt
1 tbsp pistachios, roughly chopped


How to prepare
Butter two large coffee cups or individual ramekins, then line the bottoms with a circle of non-stick paper. Add 1 tsp honey to the bottom of each.

Heat oven to 180C/fan160C/gas 4. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl, squashing any lumps of sugar with your fingers. Beat the egg, butter and yogurt together, then stir into the dry mix until smooth. Spoon the mix into the cups, sit them on a baking tray, then bake for 20 mins until risen and golden. Test if they’re ready by inserting a skewer – it should come out clean. You can make the puddings up to a day ahead, then reheat briefly in the microwave, or leave them in a warm oven, still in the cups.

Loosen the edge of each pud with a round-bladed knife, then up-turn them onto serving plates. Remove lining disc, drizzle over a little more honey, then serve with a scoop of fat free Greek yoghurt into which you have folded some more chopped pistachios.
