Food Sorcery Chocolate Fondant

Who can resist the scrumptious taste of chocolate, chef showed us how to make the perfect melt in the middle pudding.

Ingredients – makes 6

  • 150g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 150g dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped or broken into small chunks
  • 90g plain flour (25g for moulds, 75g for cake mix)
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 200g caster sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream, crème fraiche, mint & berries


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/Gas 5
  2. 2. Grease 6 ramekins with butter.
  3. 3. Mix together the cocoa powder and 25g of plain flour and dust the inside of the moulds, place them on a baking sheet and set aside.
  4. 4. Put the butter and chocolate into a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water underneath) and leave until melted, stirring occasionally
  5. 5. Remove from the heat, sift over the flour and then whisk it in
  6. 6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks and sugar until combined, then whisk this into the chocolate mixture, until smooth and well combined
  7. 7. Pour the chocolate mixture into the ramekins.
