Less than 10 mins

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 85g/3oz caster sugar
  • 150g/6oz butter, chopped, plus extra for greasing
  • 150g/6oz dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
  • 3 free-range egg yolks
  • 3 whole free-range eggs
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • double cream, to serve (optional)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease 4 small dariole moulds or individual pudding basins.
  • Place the sugar, butter and chocolate into a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  • Heat very gently until the butter and chocolate have melted, then remove from the heat.
  • Whisk together until combined.
  • Add the egg yolks and whole eggs and beat well.
  • Fold in the flour.
  • Pour into the dariole moulds or pudding basins and place in the fridge to chill for at least 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from the fridge and place onto a baking tray. Put straight into the oven and cook for 8-9 minutes.
  • Allow to rest for a minute or two, then turn out onto individual serving plates. Serve with a dollop of double cream, if you like.
