Chocolate Fondant

I got to be honest here, I am a choco-lover. There is no day that I don't crave for something chocolatey. If I have all the time in the world, I will definitely turn my kitchen upside down to invent new chocolate dessert recipes. But I got to accept, my 20 month old child is keeping my hands all tied up.

When I try or do new recipe, I always make it in a small batch. Less waste and gives me more room to try it again. It is my first time to try this chocolate fondant recipe. I'm a bit hesitant to serve it to my husband. But I got a kiss so I guess I did it right.

Chocolate Fondant

100 dark chocolate (chopped into pieces)
100 g butter (in small pieces as well)
100 g caster sugar
100 g plain flour (all purpose flour)
2 whole eggs
2 yolks
25 g melted butter (for brushing)
Cocoa powder (for dusting) 

(Makes two ramekins)

First, you need to brush the melted butter all over inside the ramekins. Then put it in the freezer. After few minutes, brush more butter and dust with cocoa powder covering the inside of the dishes.

Second, in a bowl over a pan with simmering water, melt 100 grams of butter and 100 grams of dark chocolate together. Remove from heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.

Third, whisk 2 whole eggs, 2 egg yolks and 100 grams of caster sugar until thick in one bowl. Sift 100 grams of plain flour in the egg mixture and beat together.

Finally, transfer into the ramekins and bake for 10-12 minutes in an oven of 200C (fan-assisted).

One way to know whether the fondant is ready to come out of the oven is when it forming a crust and the chocolatey sauce is starting to come out of the moulds. Do not turn it over yet after coming out of the oven. Just wait for a minute. That's it. Hope you like it. 

Next time around, I'll serve it with ice cream and strawberry on top. What do you think?
