Warm Chocolate Pots

Category : ,

Mid week cooking was followed by me making a dessert, not a very common occurrence.
Taken from the latest Delicious magazine, these amazing delights are nice and cake like on the top, but explode with gooey chocolate when you eat them. I served mine with a vanilla and caramel ice-cream and couldn't get enough!

A nice wintery alternative to chocolate mousse. Will have to make this one for my friends when they come over next month for a dinner party.

Very easy to make, takes about 30 minutes to prepare and cook.

  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tbs plain flour, (sifted)
  • cream or ice-cream to serve
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Grease four 150mL ramekins.

2. Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until melted. Stir to just combine, then cool slightly.

3. Place the eggs, sugar and flour in a bowl and whisk until just combined.

4. Gradually whisk in the chocolate mixture, then pour the batter into the ramekins and place on a baking tray.

5. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the edges are set but the centre is soft.

6. Serve hot with cream or ice-cream.

Serves 4.

It looks so yummyy... and sounds easy to make too.. maybe i'll try to follow your recipe. =) Sure Vic will be happy when I do so. -Venny-

This looks amazing! Might cook this one up for my boyfriends arrival home from interstate. I'm sure it will go down an absolute TREAT.

I reckon you can try with milk or even white chocolate... mmmm... I could go one now..

they look great. I actually bought the magazine yesterday and was going to make these tonight, so we'll see how they go!

Ooh, we made these too the other night and they were delicious - and surprisingly easy!

Jill: I'm glad they turned out well! I couldn't believe how easy they were to make either!! It's a keeper :)
