Serves: 4 

  • 226g plain chocolate
  • 113g butter
  • 7 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 100g plain flour

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat oven to 185 C / Gas 4 1/2.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a mixing bowl over the top of a saucepan of boiling water on the hob, then cool for 10 minutes. Make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl put in 4 of the eggs and add the sugar. Whisk that together.
  4. Add the flour to the egg mixture and whisk again. Add the remaining 3 eggs and whisk.
  5. Finally add the chocolate and butter mix to the egg mixture and whisk together. Pour the mixture into 4 ramekins (soufflé dishes).
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Even when fully cooked the middle may still be wet because of the chocolate; this is fine.
