Chocolate Fondant


Ingredients

70g dark chocolate
55g milk chocolate
125g butter, unsalted
60g caster sugar
100g eggs, whole
40g egg yolks
10g plain flour

Method

Pre-heat oven to 175 C

Combine chocolate and butter and melt in the microwave in 20 second intervals, stir and try not to let it get hotter than 50 C-60 C.

In a medium size bowl combine eggs and sugar using a whisk.

Pour in chocolate to temper the eggs and stir until mixed. Add flour and fold through until combined.

Rub the sides and base of a 7C or 1.6L Pyrex mould with softened butter, and coat in sugar.

Pour in choc mix. Bake at 160 C for 14 minutes. It should be just set but still runny on the inside. Serve immediately.
