Soft-Centred Chocolate Pudding

Bill likes to serve these puddings with crème fraîche. He finds its gentle tang cuts the richness of the chocolate perfectly.

Tips for Eggs


  1. 1Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water, and stir until just melted.
  2. 2Place the eggs, sugar, and flour in a bowl and mix until just combined.
  3. 3Gradually mix in the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into four 1 cup ovenproof ramekins and place on a baking tray.
  4. 4Bake until the edges are set, about 15 minutes. Serve with cream or crème fraîche.

Beverage pairing: Cornet & Cie Banyuls Rimage, France. Banyuls is a wine from the south of France made of Grenache Noir and is considered one of the best wines to match with chocolate. In this case, the wine’s minerality, dark fruit, and hints of coffee and vanilla will bring out the most from this intense pudding.
