Molten Chocolate Puddings


Recipe Info

  • Servings : 6
  • Cook Time : 16m
  • Ready In : 20m


  • 5 eggs
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 80g sugar
  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 250g butter, plus extra for the moulds
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • fresh strawberries, sliced
  • icing sugar for dusting


Step 1

Using an electric beater, whisk the eggs and yolks with the sugar until thick and pale.

Step 2

Melt the chocolate and butter in a stainless steel bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Fold the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until combined and of an even consistency.

Step 3

Sift the flour over the mix and fold in until completely incorporated with no lumps. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and place in the refrigerator until firm.

Step 4

Butter 6 ramekin dishes, lightly dust with cocoa powder and place on a tray or baking paper. Once the mixture is firm, pipe into the moulds, then refrigerate until set.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 185°C. Place the chocolate puddings on an oven tray and bake for 16 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow them to stand for 3 minutes before turning them out, to avoid cracking. Turn out the puddings onto individual plates and dust with icing sugar and garnish with sliced strawberries.
