  • 50 g butter plus extra for greasing, 1/2 stick
  • 50 g 70% cocoa chocolate roughly chopped, 1 3/4 oz, bittersweet
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 25 g brown sugar 2 tbs
  • 12 g cocoa plus extra for dusting, 1 1/2 tbs


  • Brush melted butter inside 2 dariole moulds. Refrigerate and brush with melted butter again. Dust with cocoa, turning the moulds to ensure the moulds are well coated.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir gently to combine well into a dark silky liquid and set aside to cool a little.
  • Beat the egg, egg yolk and sugar together in a stand mixer fitter with a paddle attachment for at least 5 minutes, until the mixture is thick and moussey, and leaves a little trail before slowly sinking back into the rest of the mixture.
  • Carefully fold in the melted chocolate and butter. Sift the cocoa over the top and fold in carefully.
  • Divide the mixture between the prepared moulds and refrigerate for up to 6 hours before cooking.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 celsius (400 Fahrenheit) ( if using a fan forced oven set the temperature at 180 celsius (355 Fahrenheit)) and place a baking tray inside.
  • Place the fondants on top of the hot tray and bake 9–12 minutes. If the puddings will be sitting around for a few minutes before serving err on the side of caution and go for the shortest baking time. Leave for 1 minute before turning out into a bowl.


I've successfully made these puddings with coconut oil in place of butter. The flavour isn't quite as rich, but just as delicious, and a touch healthier.
For an extra oozy and decadent pudding push a square of chocolate into the centre of the pudding before baking.
