Recipe: Heart fondant chocolate cakes

Some terrific treats that are sure to keep committed chocaholics satisfied.

What you'll need

100g of chocolate

100g of butter plus a knob of butter for the moulds

3 eggs

50g of flour

100g of powdered sugar

Four ramekin moulds


Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas 6/390°F. Melt the chocolate and the butter in a double boiler.

Mix the sugar, the flour and the eggs in a salad bowl. Add the melted chocolate/butter mixture, and then mix well.

Pour the mixture into the ramekin moulds, which you should have buttered beforehand (flour should be sprinkled onto these before pouring in the mixture, to make it easy to remove the moulds afterwards).

Cook for between 10 and 15 minutes. The fondant should be cooked on the top and very creamy inside.

Remove from the mould right away, and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
