Oozy Dark Chocolate Fondant
By yasmine • February 11, 2016
You know that fondant that you get addicted to at some restaurants and tend to go back to for more? Yup, that’s the one! You can totally achieve it at home (using your favorite chocolate bar) and serve it to your family or a small party of friends and wow them – AND you can prepare it earlier in the day and bake it warm just 15 minutes before serving. Depending on how long you leave it in the oven, the chocolate inside will ooze out, be muddy and sticky (yum!) or completely cooked!
*If you like that zesty orange taste in your chocolate, mix the zest of an orange and two tablespoons of fresh orange juice in the egg mixture before adding the chocolate.
- 120 gram dark chocolate (roughly chopped) - شوكولاتة غامقة
- 4 tablespoon butter (and a little extra to butter the tins) - زبدة
- 3 eggs - بيض
- 1/2 cup sugar - سكر
- 2 tablespoon flour - دقيق
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar - سكر بودرة
Step by step
- Butter 4 ramekins and dust them with a bit of flour then leave them in the fridge until the fondant mix is ready. (Use ramekins around 7 cm diameter or consider using heart shaped ones!)
- Add chocolate chunks and butter chunks into a medium bowl over a pot of boiling water, stirring occasionally. When it is thoroughly melted and mixed, let it cool for a couple of minutes.
- Using a handheld mixer on medium speed, beat eggs for a minute then add sugar and beat for a minimum of 3 more minutes moving the mixer in rounds in the same direction. The mixture needs to become lighter in color and foamy.
- Using a spatula or a spoon, stir the warm chocolate into the egg mixture then add flour and fold it in slowly. Make sure the mixture is well-combined.
- Split the mixture on the 4 cold ramekins and put them back in the fridge for an hour.
- Preheat oven to 180C.
- Place the fondants ramekins on a baking tray and bake them for 10-12 minutes if you want an oozy center. The tops should have formed a crust. Remove from the oven, then leave to sit for 1 min before serving. You can also dust them with some icing sugar for garnish.
