Chocolate Fondant Dessert


Chocolate Fondnant Dessert



100g dark chocolate 70 – 75% cocoa

100g butter (plus extra for greasing)

4 eggs

30g caster sugar

45g plain flour

To serve: vanilla ice cream, double cream or crème fraiche

This is an adaptation of a John Burton Race recipe. However, our recipe doesn’t require you to separate the eggs and takes only a few minutes to make but looks very impressive when served. You can also divide the recipe in half and just make two.



  1. Butter 4 ramekins or moulds. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius.
  2. Place butter and chocolate (broken into pieces)into a bowl aver a pan of gently simmering water.
  3. When melted take off the heat and set aside.
  4. Beat the eggs, sugar and flour together and add the cooled chocolate mixture and beat together.
  5. Divide the mixture between the four moulds and place on a baking tray.You can set aside until you are ready to bake as they need to be served hot from the oven.
  6. Place in the oven for 10 mins. It can take up to 12 mins but if you overcook them the middles will not be runny 🙁

  8. The ones in the picture below were cooked for 11 mins – but 10 mins would have been a little better. Every oven is different!
  9. Dust with icing sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream or double cream or crème fraiche.
