Ingredients

  • 10 grams melted butter
  • 250 grams dark chocolate, chopped
  • 125 grams unsalted butter, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Tia Maria or Kahlua
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • Thickened cream, to serve

Method

  • 1
    Grease 4 small ovenproof ramekins, teacups or small bowls (¾ cup/185ml) with the melted butter.
  • 2
    Place chocolate and butter in a medium heatproof bowl above a saucepan of simmering water (do not allow base of bowl to touch water). Stir until melted, then remove from heat. Stir in the liqueur.
  • 3
    In the bowl of the electric mixer, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until frothy. Alternatively, use a large bowl and hand-whisk. Sprinkle over the flour and whisk in. Gradually whisk the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until combined. Pour into the prepared ramekins and leave to rest at room temperature for 1-2 hours.
  • 4
    Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).
  • 5
    Bake pudings for 12 minutes or until firm at the sides but still soft in the center. Serve with lashings of cream.

Notes

If using metal dishes, the puddings will cook slightly faster.
