Why choose us

Pourquoi choisir les Deux Coqs

45 minutes      4 fondants

Ingredients

  • unsalted butter 100g, plus extra for buttering the moulds
  • cocoa for dusting
  • dark chocolate 150g, at least 72% solids, chopped
  • vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
  • eggs 2 large
  • egg yolks 2 large
  • golden caster sugar 55g
  • plain flour 35g
  • salted caramel "Les Deux Coqs" 4 good heaped tsp

Method

  • Step 1

Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4. Brush 4 mini metal pudding moulds thickly with soft butter and dust well with cocoa, so that all the butter is covered.

  • Step 2

Put the 100g butter and the chocolate in a heatproof bowl, and melt together in 30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring in between each burst. Or set over a pan of hot water and melt gently, stirring occasionally. Set aside while you make the sponge.

  • Step 3

Whisk together the whole eggs, egg yolks and sugar until the mixture is fluffy, doubled in size and pale in colour. When you lift the whisk from the mixture it should leave a ribbon trail on top of the surface. This will take about 5 minutes. Whisk in the melted chocolate and butter, then sift over the our and fold in well.

  • Step 4

Spoon the mixture into the moulds to about 1.5cm full. Dot a tsp of the salted caramel in the centre, then cover carefully with more sponge mixture until the moulds are lied to about 1cm below the rim. Put on a baking tray and bake for 10-12 mins, the mixture should rise just above the edge of the moulds. Turn out onto serving plates, dust with more cocoa and serve straight away.

        Bon appétit !
