Create this Molten Chocolate Pudding recipe by Donna Hay for an extra indulgent treat. This is the perfect dessert to warm yourself as the evenings continue to get colder.
– 250g unsalted butter, chopped
– 300g dark (70%) chocolate, chopped
– 2 tbps Dutch cocoa, sifted
– 125ml milk
– 6 eggs
– 220g superfine caster sugar
– 85g brown sugar
– 150g plain all-purpose flour
1. Place the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Add the cocoa and milk and stir to combine. Set aside to cool slightly.
2. Place the eggs and both the sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on high speed for 12-15 minutes or until pale, thick and creamy.
3. Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and whisk, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until just combined. Reduce the speed to low, add the flour and whisk until just combined.
4. Preheat oven to 200C (400F). Heat a baking tray in the oven for 5 minutes. Lightly grease 12 x 3/4-cup-capacity (180ml) metal pudding moulds or ovenproof ramekins.
5. Pour 125ml of the cake mixture into each mould. Transfer to the hot baking tray and bake for 12 minutes or until just set to the touch.
6. Allow to cool in the moulds for 1 minute before turning out onto serving plates. Dust with cocoa and serve immediately.
