    Method

    1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and put on a full kettle. Have a large roasting tin ready. Butter 10 squares of foil, each about 15 x 15cm. Butter 10 x 200ml mini pudding tins, dust with flour, then tap out the excess. Cut 10 small circles of baking paper to fit the bottoms and drop one into each tin.

    2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a pan, heating gently and stirring every so often. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, put the eggs and sugar into a large bowl and whisk with electric beaters for 10 mins, or until the mix is thick and foamy and holds a trail for a few seconds.

    3. Mix the ground almonds, flour and baking powder together. Splash 1 tbsp amaretto over the biscuits. Fold the cooled chocolate mix into the whisked egg and sugar using a large metal spoon. Follow with the flour mix, then work in the amaretto.

    4. Fill the tins one-third full, then drop in an amaretti biscuit and top up with mix, leaving a 1cm gap between the top of the mix and the edge of the tins. Loosely scrunch a foil square over the top of each tin. Put the tins in the roasting pan and pour hot water around – it should come about halfway up the sides of the puddings. Bake for 30 mins, then insert a skewer into one; a few damp crumbs should stick to the skewer – you don’t want the puds to be totally dry.

    5. Meanwhile, make the fudgy sauce. Melt all of the ingredients together in a heavy-based pan, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Set aside. Keep in the fridge for up to 2 days,then reheat on the hob or in the microwave on High for 1 min. To serve the puddings, turn onto plates and spoon over some of the sauce, allowing it to ooze over the edges. Sprinkle with shards of Salted almond brittle and serve straight away.

    Gorgeous! Fairly easy to make -even nice cold if you have any left over the next day!

    Made the loaf tin version, we found it very very very sweet, the fudgey sauce was just too much, I agree with the earlier comment that clotted cream would have been much better, and similarly the peanut brittle although very nice did absolutely nothing for the dish.

    Made the loaf version and 1hr 15 mins was perfect but didn't make the brittle. This was the star of my dinner party and was absolutely fantastic - even the next day served cold with cream.

    I made the loaf version of this - it took ages to cook about 1hr 45 mins. The taste however was devine. I would definately make again but not serve it with the Almond Brittle as I found that this did not compliment the pudding. Clotted cream worked a treat though :)
