Mmmolten Chocolate Pudding

This is a super easy molten chocolate pudding from Bill Grainger's Series 2 DVD. The picture doesn't really do it justice, but it was everything you want in a chocolate pudding - super chocolatey but not too sweet - it only has 4 tablespoons of sugar in it.

I didn't quite achieve the molten inside as I cooked it too long but I actually prefer it cooked through. I served this with whipped cream which cut through the richness and made for a perfect dessert that was really easy to make.

Bill Grainger’s Molten Chocolate Puddings

1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees celcius.
2. Melt 125gm dark chocolate and 125gm butter in a bowl over hot water.
3. Beat 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks in bowl with 4 TBSP caster sugar until pale and fluffy.
4. Pour hot chocolate into eggs and whisk until combined.
5. Sift in 2 tsp flour and fold through.
6. Grease 4 ramekins and dust with cocoa. Fill to ¾ full.
7. Bake 10 minutes, centre should be gooey. Bake longer if you want a firmer centre.

It's all about food...

Welcome to the One Millionth Food Blog!! I'm a food blog addict so I know there are a fair few out there, but I thought why not join the masses and get my own blog going.

I'll be posting recipes I've recently tried (the ones that turned out, that is) and perhaps the occasional review of restaurants I go to. My photography will be simple point and shoot to begin with, nothing too fancy, but hopefully will learns some tips and tricks along the way.
