Method

  • 1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C: 400°F: Gas 6.
  • 2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a double boiler.
  • 3. While the chocolate is melting, whisk together the sugar, eggs and egg yolks until light and pale.
  • 4. Pour the melted butter and chocolate over the egg mixture, stir and then fold in the sifted flour and cocoa powder with a metal spoon.
  • 5. Lightly but thoroughly grease four oven proof dishes/ramekins and lightly dust with extra cocoa powder.
  • 6. Divide the chocolate mixture among the dishes.
  • 7. Place the dishes onto an oven proof tray and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • 8. When the outsides are crisp to the touch, carefully turn the puddings out of the moulds onto serving plates.
  • 9. The centre should be still soft and lusciously saucy.
  • 10. Serve with thick cream, creme fraiche or vanilla ice cream.

  • Raspberries or fruit coulis optional
