Chocolate pudding

Chocolate pudding

PT1H

1
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6. Generously brush the 8 pudding basins with the melted butter
  • 100g of butter
2
Place the chocolate, butter and brandy in a large heatproof bowl that's sitting over a saucepan of barely simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water
  • 200g of dark chocolate
  • 200g of butter
  • 2 tbsp of brandy
3
Keeping the heat at its lowest, allow the chocolate and butter to melt slowly; it should take 6-7 minutes. Remove the bowl from the heat and give it a good stir until the mixture is smooth and glossy
4
While the chocolate is melting, place the sugar, whole eggs, yolks and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl and whisk with an electric hand whisk on a high speed until the mixture has doubled in volume
  • 110g of golden caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5
This will take between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on the power of your whisk. What you need to end up with is a thick, mousse-like mixture that, when you stop the motor and lift the whisk, leaves a trail
6
Pour the melted chocolate mixture around the edge of the bowl containing the whisked egg mixture (it’s easier to fold it in from the edges) and then sift over the flour
  • 60g of plain flour
7
Using a large metal spoon, carefully but thoroughly fold everything together; careful folding and cutting movements are needed. This will take 3-4 minutes
8
Divide the mixture between the mini pudding basins (the mix should come to just below the top of each basin) and line them up on a baking tray. At this point you can cover with cling film and chill until later.
9
Bake the chocolate puddings on the centre shelf of the oven for 14 minutes. They might need a bit longer if they have been chilled first
10
The puddings should have risen and feel fairly firm to the touch, although the insides will still be melting. Leave to stand for 1 minute before sliding a palette knife around each pudding and turning them out onto individual serving plates
11
Serve immediately, with some chilled cream to pour over
  • 1 dollop of whipping cream
