• 60 g chilled butter, plus extra to grease
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 60 g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids minimum)
  • 50 g golden caster sugar
  • 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 40 g plain flour

You will also need:

  • 2 x 180ml ramekins / pudding moulds


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°C / fan 180°C / gas 6. Lightly grease the pudding moulds and dust with the cocoa powder, discarding any excess. Gently heat the chocolate and butter together in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan until melted and smooth. Stir in the sugar and then whisk in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Add in the flour, stirring until you have a smooth, thick mixture.

  2. 2

    Place the moulds on a baking tray and then fill with the mixture. Cook on the middle shelf of the oven for 15 minutes.

  3. 3

    When the cakes are ready, remove from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the moulds before turning out onto serving plates. Serve immediately with a sauce of your choice or cream.
