Dark Chocolate Fondant
 
Cooking Time: 8 mins at 200c
 
Notes: Add butter for greasing and extra cocoa for dusting. Preheat the oven to 200c 400F gas mark 6.
 
Ingredients
 
125g unsalted butter
125g dark chocolate
60g castor sugar
3 small fresh free-range eggs
3 egg yolks
100g plain sieved flour
1 tblsp dark cocoa powder
 
Method
 
1. Melt the butter and chocolate together over a bain marie [double boiler]

2. Whisk together the sugar and eggs and egg yolks until light and pale

3. Pour the melted butter and chocolate over the egg mix and then fold the sieved flour with a metal spoon

4. Lightly but thoroughly butter 4 oven proof individual moulds [Dariole moulds preferably] and dust lightly with the extra cocoa powder

5. Place onto an ovenproof tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200c for approx 8 mins

6. When the outside is crisp to the touch, carefully turn out of the moulds onto the serving plates…the centre should still be soft and lusciously saucy….just like me!!!

7. Serve with thick cream, crème fraiche or vanilla ice cream
