Soft-centred chocolate puddings

This is a great recipe. So practical and delicious too. I decided to make it at the last minute and as the recipe is not too laborious it was no trouble. The result is a lovely pudding that is moist inside and so chocolatey.very yummy. I served it with strawberries to break the sweetness of the desert. Plain yoghurt is also a lovely combination or crème fraîche even. I got the recipe out of Bill Granger’s Bills Open Kitchen book. I always go for his books if I want last minute treats. And I have to say that I am very rarely disappointed with the outcome.

200g good quality dark chocolate, chopped

100g unsalted butter, chopped

3 eggs, lightly beaten

115g caster sugar

2 tablespoons plain flour

To serve

Thick (double/heavy) cream, strawberries, crème fraîche

Preheat the oven to 200oC (400oC/Gas mark 4). Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water, and stir until just melted.

Place the eggs, sugar and flour in a bowl and mix until just combined. Gradually mix in the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into four 250ml ovenproof ramekins and place on a baking tray. Bake until the edges are set, about 15 minutes. Serve with cream or crème fraîche plus strawberries or other berries.

I'm yet to try any molten chocolate puds, and now I have a recipe! Thanks! (I have Bill Granger's Sydney Food, which is also full of really inviting recipes - he's great, isn't he).

Fran, I liked it because it wasn't too sickening.
Pille, I have to agree with you.Bill Granger's stuff is great. I often prepare something from one of his books.

I had a similar dessert to this at a restaurant in Richmond called Strada. I have been wanting to recreate it for ages... now I have the recipe to do it. Thanks, Sam xxx
