Here's my recipe for Shabby Chikky Cottage
Satin Chocolate Puddings
200g butter, chopped
300g good quality dark chocolate, chopped
4 x good size eggs
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup of castor sugar
1/3 cup of self raising flour
2 tablespns plain flour
cocoa powder for dusting
1)Preheat the oven to 18o degrees celcius fanforced or 200 convention
Grease 6 oven ramekins or moulds
2)Put butter & chocalate in a heatproof bowl and over a saucepan of simmering water.
make sure the water does not touch the base of the bowl.
Cook stirring occasionally with a metal spoon until the butter & chocolate melt
& mixture is smooth.Remove from the heat & set aside to cool for 10 mins.
3)Put eggs, yolks & caster sugar in the medium bowl of an electric mixer & beat
until thick. Stir in lukewarm chocolate mixture.Sift flours together over chocolate
mixture & stir gently to mix.
4) Pour mixture evenly into prepared moulds & place on an oven tray. Bake for 20 -
25 mins or just until the tops start to crack. the top needs to be set whilst the
centres need to be soft.
5) Stand the puddings for 10 mins Dust with cocoa powder & serve with cream.
Or remove from the moulds & turn out on a plate lined with baking paper.
Then turn upright onto warm serving plates.
(just a hint!!Find those ramekins before you start melting chocolate that way you won't have to 'make do' with the wrong size dish & a 'not so soft' centred pudding , lucky for me hubby has a sweet tooth LOL)
