...are it turns out just a fancy name for soft-centred chocolate puddings. So I dug out a recipe I've had for ages but never tried. My mistake.
They are ridiculously easy and quick to make, which suits The Child just fine.
Soft-centred 'molten lava' chocolate puddings
- 200g chocolate (we used 100g of Green and Black's milk chocolate and 100g of their 70% dark chocolate)
- 100g unsalted butter
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 2 tbsps flour
Mix eggs, sugar and flour together before adding the chocolate mixture.
Bake in four ramekins or small pudding bowls (of about a one-cup capacity each) in 200C oven for 15mins.
The puddings should have a set top and be nice and gooey in the middle.
Great with ice cream, cream and some berries.
