- Fruit Filling:
- Scant 1 cup sliced strawberries, washed and green caps removed
- 1/2 Tablespoon starch (tapioca, potato, arrowroot, or other starch of your choice)
- 1/2 Tablespoon coconut sugar (or other sugar of choice)
- Chocolate Topping:
- 1/3 cup Gigi’s Everyday Gluten-Free Flour Blend (Gum-Free), or other gluten-free flour blend of your choice
- 1 Tablespoon coconut sugar (or other sugar of choice)
- 1/2 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch baking soda
- Pinch salt
- 1 Tablespoon solid fat, chilled (coconut oil, dairy-free butter substitute, or real butter if you eat dairy products)
- 2½ Tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk (or other dairy- or plant-based milk of your choice)
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Lightly grease a tall mug (2-cup capacity). I like to use a mug-style pint Mason jar.
- Place berries in jar, top with starch and sugar; stir gently to distribute starch and sugar.
- In a small bowl, combine flour blend, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir with a fork to blend.
- Add chilled fat and cut in with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add milk and vanilla; stir to blend. (Mixture will be thick.)
- Spoon topping onto berries in mug (or jar).
- Microwave 1½ – 2½ minutes, on high power, checking after 1½ minutes and every 30 seconds after until topping is cooked through, but still tender.
- Cool several minutes before eating, as the berries will be very hot!
- Just before serving, top with ice cream (dairy-based or dairy-free), whipped cream (or whipped coconut milk dairy-free topping, or your favorite yogurt (dairy-based or dairy-free).
