Wicked Chocolate Dessert.....

As promised....for Singabore.

From Nigella Lawson's book How to Eat


125g best quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
125g unsalted butter
3 large eggs
150g Sugar
35g Plain flour (Italian 00 if you can get it...)
Extra butter and flour for the ramekins

Melt chocolate and butter and in a bowl over simmering water
Whisk every so often until melted

In another bowl whisk eggs, sugar and flour until just blended
Gradually whisk in chocolate and butter
Leave to stand

Grease four 250ml ramekins with butter and sprinkle flour to cover the butter...very important to get the edges of the ramekin, tap ramekin to get rid of any excess flour....BTW sugar can also work around the edge to give it a crunchy edge...but try it with flour first

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. about half an hour before you want to eat the dessert. Don't cook them until you actually need them otherwise they will bake...and you will miss the molten middle.

Pour the mixture into the ramekins and put them on a baking tray in the oven for 10-12 minutes.....

They are ready when the top is firm and cracking slightly and the edges are set.

Serve immediately, in the ramekin...ideal with cold pouring cream!

The ration of the choc compared to the flour is an insight on how devilishly sinful this is...yuumm

So, I do not really imagine this is likely to have success.
