  • Preparation Time: 20 mins
  • Cooking Time: 45 mins


  • 110g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 110g butter (room temperature)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g sugar
  • 30g flour
  • Some butter to grease the the mould


  1. Preheat the oven to 200oc

    Melt the butter and the dark chocolate together in a bain-marie, mixing the 2 ingredients well.

  2. When the ingredients are melted, wait until they cool down to room temperature before adding into other ingredients.

  3. In a bowl whip the egg yolks and the sugar together, then add the flour.

  4. Whip the egg whites separately in another bowl.

  5. Now mix together all the ingredients.

  6. Grease each mould and sprinkle with coco powder (rather than flour) to prevent sticking to the edges.  Fill the moulds with the mixture.

  7. Cook for between 12-15 minutes, so that the inside will stay creamy.

    Serve hot!
