Now I had to look for a really good recipe, Lindt recipe it is!This recipe actually serves 8, but my ramekins are considered bigger than usual, so it served me 4.
Molten Chocolate Ingredients260 grams of 70% dark chocolate (you can go for Lindt, Poulain, Hershey's, etc.) But make sure to get the extra dark one - even if you're not a fan of dark chocolate, it sure deserves it! 70 grams of margarine or unsalted butter 50 g of castor or powdered sugar A pinch of salt 3 eggs
Method of preparation:
To be honest, I'm not a regular cook - so I really wanted a simple recipe. This Lindt recipe was it!1. Preheat the oven to 200°C 2. Slightly butter the ramekins to prevent fondant from sticking 3. Use the bain marie (water bath) method to melt together the butter and the chocolate4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and salt thoroughly, until the yellow color looks pale
8. Cook for 7-9 minutes. The cake with start to pull away slightly from the edge and feel dry on top but remain molten in the center - yum!
Serving this deliciousness!
Allow the hot ramekins to to sit just for 30 seconds, place a plate on top of it and then turn out. I wasn't expecting that it will come perfect, but to my surprise, it did!
I served the molten chocolate with London Dairy Lite vanilla ice cream which is 79 calories per serving. And it was delicious! I must admit, this is not the healthiest recipe for chocolate fondant! This recipe, that gave me 4 ramekins, yielded 600 calories per one molten chocolate! Now the recipe was intended to make 8 servings, according to the Lindt website, so sharing it was a must. I know, Joey doesn't share food , but my ramekins were huge giving 679 calories (fondant + ice cream) to it had to be shared to give you 340 calories. Always, always, moderation is the key.
*Now after having half of this, go run for a straight 55 minutes! Bon appetite!
