  • 100 gr dark chocolate
  • 1 cup instant polenta
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup or more raisins, preserved ginger, glace cherries, candied peel, nuts, whatever else you’d like to add



  1. Bring water to the boil. Add polenta and baking powder while stirring and stir/mash like buggery to stop it going lumpy (I use a 1950s gadget called a Kitchamajig, like a thin springy stainless steel salad server with lots of slots in it).
  2. Immediately add everything else and stir like buggery (I use a wooden spoon at this point) till the chocolate’s melted through it and everything’s mixed in evenly.
  3. Turn into a small springform looose-bottom tin, leave to cool, put it in the fridge, pop out and pig out.
  4. Great comfort food and would make a fine celebration cake for almost no effort.
