Coffee and chocolate have always been best friends in the kitchen and this recipe shows just how beautifully they work together, indulgent, decadent and delicious. Serve with ice cream, pouring cream or clotted cream.
Ingredients 240g/9oz butter 8 egg yolks 4 egg whites 240g/9oz high quality dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids) 4 tsp corn flour ½ tea cup of sugar
Liquid Filling 150ml/5fl oz freshly brewed espresso 150ml/5fl oz milk chocolate
Method Begin by making the liquid filling. Once your espresso is brewed, add the chocolate to it and stir until completely melted. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until required.
Grease eight souffli dishes.
Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and add the chocolate, heat until completely melted then remove from the heat.
Add the egg yolks into a mixing bowl with the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add to the melted chocolate and mix well until thoroughly combined. Sift the flour in to the mixture.
In another bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks then fold into the chocolate mixture. Leave to stand for 1 hour.
Spoon some of the chocolate mix into the souffli dishes until they are ¼ full, remove the ice cubes from the freezer and place one in the centre of each pudding. Fill the souflii dishes to ¾ full with more chocolate mixture.
Place in the oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4 and bake for 10-12 minutes until puddings have risen. Remove the puddings from the puddings and allow to rest for a few minutes. Turn out onto serving plates, dust with icing or cocoa powder. Serve with ice cream, pouring or clotted cream.
