Easy Chocolate Fondant

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 100gm dark chocolate
  • 100gm butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 50 gm caster sugar
  • 30 gm plain flour
  • Butter for greasing

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Grease 4 coffee cups or 1 cup ramekins with butter.
  • Melt your chocolate and butter directly on your induction cooktop on low heat.
  • In a separate bowl whisk your eggs, yolks and sugar together with an electric mixer or vigorously by hand.
  • Pour the chocolate mix into the egg mix and stir well.
  • Add the flour and stir until well combined.
  • Pour your fondant mix into your greased coffee cups, fill to 1cm from the top to allow for the fondant to rise.
  • Place the fondants on a tray and put into the oven to bake for 8 – 10 minutes, ready when small cracks appear on the surface of the fondant. Don’t overcook.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
  • To serve, leave in the cup or upturn from the ramekin and dust with icing sugar. Be careful as the cups will be very hot. Serve with ice cream and strawberries.
