Bit late to posting – should have been a Valentine’s Day recipe. But I am lacking on the energy front! Chocolate fondants always sound so fancy and complicated but not these.  You can create them with little effort and really impress loved ones. Nothing in the world beats melted chocolate but then when you combine it with warm chocolate cake it’s a match made in heaven.  I don’t really make stuff like this too often and they blew the kids minds away.  Put aside 5 mins prep time and 15 mins cooking and voila!

Makes 4

2 whole eggs

2 egg yolks

100g 70 percent dark chocolate

1 tablespoon golden syrup

12 pieces chocolate of your choice

100g butter

120g sugar

4 teaspoons cocoa powder

100g plain flour

1 teaspoon of coffee granules made up with a small amount of boiling water

1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade

Melt the butter in the microwave for 1 min 30 secs approx

Break the 100g chocolate up ( not the 12 pieces) and add it to the butter. The heat of the butter will melt it. Stir until liquid. Add the golden syrup and mix well

Add the liquid coffee

In another bowl – Mix together the sugar and eggs well – I use my stand mixer

Then add the flour – mix together.

Keep the mixer on add the chocolate mixture and mix for a good minute

Grease 4 ramekins

Get the cocoa and coat the inside of each

Grab a tablespoon and add one spoonful of mixture into each ramekin and then add the 3 chunks of chocolate. Top up with mixture to fill each ramekin

Place in the oven for 15 mins

Leave to cool for 10 mins so not too “cakey”.

Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
