Soft Chocolate Pudding it has been more than a day. But better late than never?

I'm not going to be posting a Korean dish today. I felt like doing a good old chocolate dessert that we will all love. I'm going to be sharing with you today my version of a soft chocolate pudding. The centre and runny and chocolate-y whilst the 'crust' around it is soft and delicate.

There is not much that I can say about it without showing blogging to you. So let's get started;

1/2 cup  butter, plus some for buttering the molds
150g 85% dark chocolate or you can go for less intense such as 70% (try and use good quality chocolate)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 eggs
2 eggs yolks
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour, plus more for dusting

1. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. But ensure that the base of the bowl does not sit in the water. Stir it as it melts to get a smooth and shiny mixture.
2. Beat the sugar, egg and egg yolks until it is light yet thick.
3. Beat the chocolate and egg mixtures together whilst the chocolate is still hot and runny.
4. Quickly FOLD in the flour and cocoa powder until just combined.
5. Butter and then lightly flour 4 ramekins.
6. Divide the batter evenly between the ramekins.
7. Preheat the oven to 240 degrees Celsius and bake the ramekins in a hot water bath for about 6-8 minutes. The centre should still be soft, but if it is too soft for your liking then bake it for 10 minutes.
8. Invert the ramekins onto serving plates and let it sit for 10 seconds. (or leave in ramekins)
9. Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream.

And there you have it a delectable dessert that you can serve up as the nights are getting colder or as the days are getting warmer. It is the perfect dessert to serve all year around.

I hope that you guys will enjoy this chocolate-y recipe that will be sure to fatten you up before Thanksgiving and right before Christmas. It is a good dessert to prepare you for for the festive season. 

This will be it from me today, I hope that chocolate is up your avenue, if it is not I'll be sure to post a similar dessert minus all the chocolate soon. I hope that you will all stay safe, healthy and most of all happy until my next post.
