Melting middle chocolate fondant puddings make perfect dinner party desserts. Prepare them in just 20 minutes the night before, then they just need 6 minutes in the oven

Ingredients

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 10g cocoa
  • 100g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 70g caster sugar
  • 50g flour
  • ½tsp baking powder

Don't bother melting chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Just break it up and put it in the microwave on a low or defrost setting for a few minutes, stirring halfway through.

Gordon Ramsay, celebrity chef

Method

  1. Lightly butter 6 ramekins.
  2. Fill a larger saucepan half full with water, then place a small saucepan with the chocolate inside into the pan with water. Heat gently on the stovetop. When the chocolate melts, add butter then remove from the heat and mix well together.
  3. Whisk together the eggs and sugar. Once the mixture is pale, creamy and fluffy, fold into the chocolate. Add the flour, cocoa and baking powder and continue to fold until nice and even.
  4. Divide the mixture between the 6 ramekins and chill for around an hour. About 45 mins into their chilling time, preheat the oven to 210ºC.
  5. Cook for 6-8 mins until the tops resemble biscuits and are just beginning to crack.
  6. Serve warm in the ramekins. Delicious with strawberries and fresh lightly whipped double cream.
