Warm chocolate cake

  • Preparation Time40 mins
  • Cooking Time7 mins
  • Serves8
  • DifficultyMedium
230g butter plus a little extra for the moulds
230g dark chocolate
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
100g caster sugar
4 tsp flour, for dusting
6 tsp finely ground ginger bread
Whipped cream
1) In a double boiler, heat the butter and chocolate together until the chocolate is almost completely melted.

2) Whilst chocolate is melting, beat together all the eggs, yolks, and sugar with a whisk or electric mixer until light and thick.

3) Beat together the melted chocolate and butter; it should be quite warm. Pour in the egg mixture, and then quickly beat in the flour just until combined.

4) Butter and lightly coat 8 (110g) ramekins with ground gingerbread. Tap the excess gingerbread off and then butter and gingerbread them again. Divide batter among the moulds.

5) Preheat oven to 220C/Gas 8.

6) Bake the cakes on a sheet tray for 6 to 7 minutes; the centre will still be quite soft, but the sides will be set. Then you know it is ready. Let rest for 10 seconds and then serve with whiped cream.
