Heavenly individual chocolate cakes with a melting chocolate centre with only 6 ingredients, and ready to eat in under 30 minutes!


  • 2/3 cup good quality dark chocolate 115g, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 115g
  • 1 cup icing/powdered sugar 125g
  • 2 large eggs + 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plain flour 62g


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Grease 4 ramekins, and place them on a baking tray.
  2. Microwave the chocolate, and butter together until completely melted. Set aside to cool slightly - about 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the icing sugar, eggs, and egg yolks. Mix in the vanilla extract, and the flour until combined.
  4. Divide the mixture between the prepared ramekins. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes, until the sides of the cakes are firm, and the centres are still soft.
  5. Carefully run a knife around the edges of each cake, then turn them out onto serving plates. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, or your favourite topping.


If you don't want to bake these right away, simply cover the pudding in ramekins with clingfilm and keep refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Bake just before serving.
