RECIPE

Serves
10
Temp =
160° c  -  320° f

You Will Need

  • 3 Eggs
  • 100 g Dark chocolate
  • 50 g Plain flour
  • 100 g Sugar
  • some Fresh mint
  • 100 g Butter
  • some Cocoa powder
  • 6 aluminium pudding tins
  • 2 bowls
  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 electric/handheld mixer
  • 1 knife

Step 1: Preheat the oven

Turn the oven on to 180°C

Step 2: Prepare tins

Brush the insides of the aluminium pudding tins with soft butter, then spoon in some cocoa powder. Turn the tin in a circular motion and tap until the inside surface is fully covered with the cocoa powder. This will prevent anything sticking later.

Step 3: Chocolate & butter

Place the chocolate and butter in the heat-proof bowl, and place it over a pan of boiling water. Leave it to melt.

Step 4: Eggs

Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Slowly incorporate sugar. Mix until airy and fluffy.

Step 5: Flour

Sieve the flour into the melted butter-chocolate mixture. Mix until no flour crumbles are seen.

Step 6: Combine

Now add the egg mixture into the chocolate-butter mixture so they are both in the same bowl.

Step 7: Bake

Pour the mixture into the prepared aluminium dishes. Place into the oven for 6 minutes.

Step 8: Serve

Serve with ice cream. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle cocoa powder.
