I am sure it is not only me who watches Masterchef Professionals religiously and wishes she could cook and bake such masterpieces. I always thought in order to create the perfect fondant – that is runny in the middle – must be a challenge only professionals can complete successfully.
Not anymore – this recipe from the BBC website is so easy, my first ever chocolate fondant turned out to be perfect. It takes no time – and the taste is heavenly.
This portion was enough for 6 ramekins for me. Grease them with butter and put them into the fridge.
Meanwhile preheat the owen to 200C/gas mark 6.
- 175 g butter
- 175 g dark chocolate
- 200 caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 50 ml espresso
- 85 g flour
- vanilla ice cream of course 🙂
Then put the eggs and sugar into another bowl and mix them together.
Then comes the really fun part: fold the chocolate and butter mix into the eggs + sugar.
As the final steps, add the coffee and finally the flour. Take the ramekins out of the fridge and pour the mixture in – evenly distributing among all 6 of them.
Bake them for 12-13 minutes. When I took them out this is what they looked like:
And the final dessert looked like this 🙂
