Easy Molten Chocolate Pudding Recipe

The way to a man’s (or woman’s) heart is most definitely through their stomach, particularly if they love chocolate! I have decided to post this recipe for all of you cooking for the one you love on Valentines Day, giving you a chance to show off your cooking. You can even use heart shaped cupcake tins if you have them.

This recipe is spongey on the outside, wonderful and gooey on the inside, and can be prepared well in advance (all you need to do it cook it on the night), making it the perfect Valentines Day desert.

Easy Molten Chocolate Pudding Recipe Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped (I use Lindt 70% dark chocolate)
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp self raising flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten with a fork

Easy Molten Chocolate Pudding Recipe Method

Melt the chocolate and butter together, either on a low heat in the microwave or in a glass/metal bowl over the top of gently simmering water (be careful not to burn it as you will have to start all over again).

Sift flour, cocoa and sugar together in a bowl, then whisk in eggs and melted chocolate mixture. Pour mixture into 6 well greased cupcake pans, cover with foil and put in the freezer. Pull the pan out after 3 hours or when you are ready to use them (they will easily last a couple of weeks in the freezer).

Preheat the oven to 220ºC, then place the still frozen cupcake pans in the oven for 7 minutes. Rotate the pan and cook for a further 7 minutes. Pull out of the oven and allow to stand for 2 minutes, then remove from the pans and serve warm with ice cream or thickened cream and chopped strawberries.
