Hemsley + Hemsley - Healthy & Delicious



This incredible, decadent dessert is made with date syrup, sea salt and cacao powder.


  • 6 medium eggs at room temperature

  • 150g coconut oil or grass-fed butter

  • 8 tablespoons of cacao powder

  • 2 pinches of sea salt

  • 8 tablespoons of date syrup - or 6 tablespoons of maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

  • 8 Bursa Figs

  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda or baking powder


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180C.

  • 2.

    On a medium/low heat melt the coconut oil/butter in a small saucepan then take off the heat.

  • 3.

    Add the cocoa powder, salt, date syrup, vanilla (and baking soda if you're using it) and mix well.

  • 4.

    Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, then mix them into the cooled chocolate. It will thicken from the residual heat to a gloopy custard.

  • 5.

    Cut stalks from figs, and chop roughly into segments. Arrange them evenly across the bottom of a 24cm round oven dish with the cut sides facing upwards.

  • 6.

    Pour the chocolate batter around the figs making sure the batter only reaches halfway up the sides of the figs.

  • 7.

    Bake for 20 minutes or until the top has risen and set, but slightly wobbles in the middle.
