Liquid Gold Chocolate Fondants

Guess who’s back, back again...Bigarades back, and well, I’ve bought you a recipe!
No diets were hurt in the making of these I swear!

Okay mine was...calorie overload...I actually felt emotional pain.
I spent half an hour this morning at 6 am, in the gym, burning off those calories my Punjabi parents have forced upon me...okay I lied they didn’t force them upon me but hey who can resist double servings of Saag! (Obviously not me)

Where was I?
Oh yes, in the gym “giving it large” on the fitness freak front.
Those of you who know me, know how much fitness means to me :D (HAAAAAA)
So I stroll into college on this beautiful march day, and find out were cooking chocolate fondants...yes those molten chocolate cakes, the really nice gooey ones, yessss....those ones that could push Mr Motivator over the edge!!

So we had like a free lesson right, we love those at our college.
So we made stuff, like you do *rollseyes*

Oeufs de neige (poached meringue, to my understanding)
Sable biscuit & Balsamic strawberry stacks
Chocolate Fondants (wink wink)
Mango & Passion fruit Bavarois

Eventful day may I just add!
We used to make chocolate fondant where I used to work!
Amazed me it did!
A cake, with chocolate melting in the middle...Dreamalicious baby!
So when we did it at college today my mind went into OVERLOAD!
So I thought hey “hey heyyyy”,why don’t  I share this sinful food with the readers!

So folks, enough of my chronic rambling, I present you with;
Chocolate fondants.

You will need,

2 Egg yolks
4 Whole eggs
80gf Caster sugar
130g Butter
130g Dark chocolate (the bitterererer the bettererer ;) )
30g Plain flour
14g Cocoa powder
You will also need to preheat your oven to 180Deg

I used tin pudding basins,and got 6 large servings from this mix :)

In a bowl whisk together your:
Yolks,Whole eggs,Cocoa powder,Flour & sugar

 Put zee mix to one side,Then in a small sauce pan melt your butter,to your melted butter add your chocolate.melt it slowly,its best to take it off of the heat at this stage,other wise it starts to go a bit crazy and wants to burn
Add this gorge! Buttery chocolatey mix to the egg mix.

Now Mix well and leave to cool for about an hour.
(these freeze REAL well!! and are best cooked form frozen in my humble opinion! iv frozen some for mothers day! BONUS!!)
Grease your moulds,fill them with the mix,about 2/3 up the side.
Bake for 9 minutes! (yes that's all it takes to get deliciousness!!)

Dinner party at mine?
