Chocolate Fondant

With Masterchef back on the Telly ... what more appropriate time to post my chocolate fondant recipe (written for Happy Eggs) ?

Chocolate FondantServes 4

Ingredients:200g 72% cooking chocolate
200g Butter
240g Caster sugar
4 happy eggs
4 yolks
200g Plain flour


• Butter the inside of 4 ramekins, sprinkle with cocoa powder and place in the freezer for 5 minutes.

• Melt the chocolate and butter in a pan on a very low heat.
Tip: Alternatively, you could place the pan in a sink of hot water from the tap. This warms the mixture gently without direct heat.
• In a bowl whip the eggs, yolks & sugar.
• Fold in the flour and when mixed, fold in the chocolate.
• Pour the mixture into the 4 ramekins.
• Place in a preheated oven at 180°C for 7-10 minutes.

Tip: You can tell they’re cooked when they are soft to touch but are set, not liquid.


  1. Chocolate of any description doesn't last long enough in this house to make it into a melted state but I may make an exception for this recipe! To be tested ...thank you

  2. I used to be able to make chocolate fondants, but having watched a few years of mastercheffery, I'm now too scared...
    Maybe I'll try again with this :-)

  3. its really easy to make ... just check it after 7 min and then every minute or so till it has set

  5. Now we all know what happens when Masterchef contenstants try making a chocolate fondant!

  6. Looks good!

    It pains me to see you with a pint of Guinness in your profile pic though ... surely you can do better than that? Why not make a version of the chocolate fondant with some russian imperial stout? Now, that would rule.


  7. Mmm, chocolate fondant - my favourite treat. Pity I've never tried making it. This looks great.
