  • Preheat your oven to 200⁰C / Fan 180⁰C / Gas Mark 6 then lightly grease 4 ovenproof mugs (or ramekin dishes) with a little butter.
  • Divide the chopped dates equally between the mugs, then sprinkle equal quantities of the white chocolate and chopped nuts over the top.
  • Place the dark chocolate, butter, milk and sugar into a heavy-based pan then heat gently until the chocolate has melted.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl then stir until smooth.
  • Whisk the eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder and cream of tartar into the dark chocolate bowl, until evenly combined.
  • Gently fold in the ground almonds then divide the mixture evenly between the mugs.
  • Bake in the centre of your oven for 20 minutes or until the surface is cooked but soft and fudge-like in the centre.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or clotted cream... and enjoy!
