Ingredients

  • 125g butter, plus 2 tsp extra
  • 200g bittersweet dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 large eggs, plus 2 egg yolks
  • 125g sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 35g plain flour, sifted
  • 100ml cream

Method

Heat oven to 170C. Use extra butter to grease four 150-millilitre heatproof souffle moulds or ramekins, and place on a baking tray. Melt remaining butter and 150 grams of chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of gently simmering water. Remove from heat and whisk until smooth.

Using an electric beater, beat eggs, yolks, sugar and vanilla for two minutes until pale and creamy. Fold in chocolate mixture, then sift flour over the top and fold through.

Bake for 13-14 minutes until puffed and set on top but still soft in the centre. Invert each mould on to a warm dessert plate, drizzle with cream and scatter with remaining chocolate.

Tip New York chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten says the best way to serve them is to invert each mould on to a plate, and let sit for about 10 seconds. ''Then unmould by lifting up one corner of the mould,'' he says.

    So, the trick is under cooking......just as if you left a cake in too short a time and it is soft in the centre. Always thought it was something more complicated. Silly me.
