Gooey Chocolate Puddings
So the cat is out of the bag! Starting on 1st December, I will doing a #12BakesofChristmas series here and over on my Instagram! I will posting a new festive recipe every other day in December, perfect for every occasion! I've been working really hard to prepare lots of festive treats and new ideas for you.
But while you wait for December to arrive, here is a delicious recipe to tide you over! Gooey, melt in the middle chocolate puddings. One of my absolute favourites!
125g dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
150g caster sugar
35g plain flour
a little butter and flour for the ramekins
1. Put the chocolate and butter in a bowl and suspend over a pan of simmering water. Melt until combined and silky smooth.
2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and flour together until just blended. Gradually whisk in the melted chocolate and butter. Put to one side to rest.
3. Grease four ramekins with butter and a little flour, tapping the ramekins to get rid of any excess. Preheat the oven to 180 fan. These have to be served almost immediately after baking so if you have company, pop the oven on to preheat before you have your main course. If you're making these just for you, preheat the oven and bake straight away.
4. Divide the mixture between the four ramekins and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the tops are firm and just starting to crack. Serve straight away, perhaps with a jug of cream or a big dollop of ice cream.
