Introduction

Indulgent, slightly boozy chocolate puddings.

Preparation time: 25 mins

Cooking time: 18 mins

Add 1 hr chilling time.

Ingredients - Serves: 4

150g unsalted butter, plus extra for the ramekins

200g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), roughly chopped.

90g golden caster sugar

3 large eggs

90ml Guinness

Good quality vanilla, chocolate or salted caramel ice cream to serve.

 

Method

Butter four 9 x 5cm ramekins.

Place the butter, chocolate and a generous pinch of salt into a heatproof bowl. Set over a small pan of barely-simmering water and stir until melted, then remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.

Place the sugar and eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric whisk until pale, doubled in volume and thick enough to leave a trail.

Gently fold in the melted chocolate and the Guinness. Spoon the mixture into the ramekins, then chill in the fridge for 1 hr.

In the meantime, place a baking tray on the top shelf of the oven and preheat to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

Place the chilled ramekins on the hot baking tray and bake for 18 mins.

Remove from the oven and leave to stand for a minute. The centres will sink a little. Pop a scoop of ice cream into the hollow and serve.
