This was absolutely divine! It's so very easy to make, and you can hand-whisk the eggs and sugar instead of using an electric beater. This was so chocolate-y and yummy, with a lovely gooey centre. I didn't make the sauce as I decided it would be too rich, and in a pinch you could even make 6 smaller puddings (4 are quite rich and large-ish for single servings). Thank you very much for posting, this will certainly be made again for special occasions. :-)
