Gooey molten chocolate puddings



1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease 8 ramekins well and coat the inside of each with caster sugar. Place on an oven tray.
2.Make a ganache by heating the cream until it trembles, then add 100g of the chopped dark chocolate; cover and set aside. When the chocolate has melted, whisk until smooth and chill in the freezer to set.
3.Heat the remaining chocolate with the butter over a gentle heat. Whisk until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla extract until the sugar is dissolved. Slowly drizzle the chocolate/butter into the egg mixture. Add the flour and stir until combined.
4.Pour the batter into each ramekin, a centimetre deep. Spoon a ball of solid ganache into each ramekin, then continue filling with the batter to cover. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the tops are dry and pulling away from the edges.
5.Loosen slightly with a knife, then turn out each pudding onto a side plate. Dust with icing sugar and cocoa, and serve with ice cream.
