I saw Nigella make these the other night and went straight out to the kitchen to try them myself! I don't usually do desserts, but these are simple and simply divine!


  1. Melt butter and chocolate together carefully in microwave.
  2. Beat eggs and sugar together, add flour and mix well.
  3. Add chocolate and butter and stir to mix.
  4. Pour into 4 greased ramekins.
  5. Cook 210C for 10 minutes.
  6. To serve, break top of pudding and add large dollop of thick cream.

I love that you can make them gooey in the middle or cook a little longer and have a brownie. The last time I made these, there were a few extra ramekins so I frozen them raw. Was having a chocolate craving today so I popped one into the convection microwave and had dessert for 1! (Hubby is on a diet.)If I put them in the oven straight from the freezer...takes @ 35 minutes. My little oven loses alot of heat when I open the I test with a skewer and give them a bit more time if needed. If they have sat out of the freezer during the time it takes for the oven to preheat usually take @ 20 minutes. Just as good as the fresh cooked ones.

I really didnt know what to expect with these. Mine turned out a little like Lava cakes, and I am tempted to try cooking them a little longer. They get 5 stars all the way for taste though, pure decadence :)

These are just too easy to make. I did make the mistake of overcooking though as I got caught on the phone. Silly me didn't realise they were meant to be gooey in the middle!!!!They were still delicious and I will certainly be making again. :)
