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