  • 100g chocolate (ideally about 70% cocoa solids)
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 25g flour
  • 2 eggs


    1. Preheat the oven to around 200C. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bain marie.
    2. Mix together the icing sugar and flour in a seperate bowl. Then add the eggs and mix well.
    3. Butter two ramekin dishes. When the chocolate/butter is truly melted, pour the mixture into the flour/icing sugar/egg bowl and mix completely.
    4. Pour mixture into the ramekins about 3/4s full. Cook for approx 10mins, or until they have risen about an inch.
    5. I serve it still in the ramekin dish (in a very rustic French style!) with a raspberry coulis (recipe to follow soon) and vanilla ice cream.

Have used this recipe a lot, I use GF flour and it works perfectly too. I've also made it in advance and put it in the fridge for a day or so, you need to put it in the oven for about 15 mind then.

I made this super-easy dessert last night, and my family were very happy! I am sure to make this again, and again.... Many thanks to Mlle-emma.

I just wanted to add that a "bain marie" in "1." is just the poncy phrase for a (glass) bowl over a saucepan over simmering water.

'Bain Marie' is not a poncy phrase it's French, there's a clue in the recipe title.
