Chocolate Fondant

Chocolate Fondant

  • Melted butter, for greasing
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting
  • 275g Dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids)
  • 225g Unsalted butter
  • 400g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 large free-range eggs, beaten
  • 200g Corn Flour
  • 50ml raspberry coulis
  • Seasonal berries
  1. Heat the oven to 180 C, 160 C fan. Brush the pudding moulds sparingly with melted butter, dust with cocoa powder and shake out the excess. Set aside.

  2. Melt the chocolate and butter gently in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and vanilla extract. Leave to cool slightly.

  3. Whisk the eggs into the mixture a little at a time, then fold in the sifted corn flour and a little salt until you have a smooth mixture.

  4. Divide between the moulds – each one two thirds full.

  5. Place on the middle shelf of the oven and cook for 12 minutes exactly.

  6. Remove from the oven, run a knife round the edges, invert and tip out on to serving plates.

  7. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream and seasonal berries
