So far from being the healthiest choice of pudding (keep tuned as I'm going to start sharing more of my gluten free recipes including a number of healthy-ish puddings, all gluten free!), this pudding is super easy to make and made with just a handful of ingredients!
To make four puddings of this size you will need :
100g Unsalted Butter (at room temperature)
170g of 'semi-sweet' chocolate (I use Dr Oetker's Fine Cooks Chocolate)
3 Large Eggs (at room temperature)
65g (approx. 6 tablespoons) Sugar. (I used Golden Granulated as it's what I had in the cupboard, but you can use any regular sugar)
A pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 190 degrees.
First off - break up the chocolate, add it to the butter, and melt it. I placed it in a ceramic bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. This shouldn't take too long, keep stirring it until melted, then remove from the heat.
Whisk together the eggs, sugar and the pinch of salt. Whisk until light and foamy, I used an electric whisk to speed this up, but you could just use a regular whisk and some good old muscle. Take about a third of the egg mixture and add it to the chocolate, fold it in gently to mix it. Then add all of the chocolate mix into the final two thirds of the egg mix.
Divide the mixture up into the ramekins. I've had these for a while, but any ramekins will do. Bare in mind these rise a lot, so don't overfill them! Pop them on the bottom shelf of the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Test with a toothpick to ensure no wet mixture remains on the stick, even if they're gooey it shouldn't come out on the toothpick!
And now time to enjoy! These are best served warm, but you can always eat them cold as they remain gooey and it's quite an interesting texture when cold!
A nice quick and easy recipe that you can whip up with little attention before your friends come over for an evening!
