We show you how to make the ultimate gooey-centred chocolate puddings. Serve with softly whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease 4 small dariole moulds or individual pudding basins.
Place the sugar, butter and chocolate into a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
Heat very gently until the butter and chocolate have melted, then remove from the heat.
Whisk together until combined.
Add the egg yolks and whole eggs and beat well.
Fold in the flour.
Pour into the dariole moulds or pudding basins and place in the fridge to chill for at least 20-25 minutes.
Remove from the fridge and place onto a baking tray. Put straight into the oven and cook for 8-9 minutes.
Allow to rest for a minute or two, then turn out onto individual serving plates.
Serve with a dollop of double cream, if you like.
