Chocolate fondant

« I start salivating just thinking about this sweet morsel, which is just waiting to be popped in your mouth to release its still liquid, chocolate filling. Probably one of the most fabulous desserts and the perfect way to top off a meal. »

Serves 6:

  • 7 oz (200 g) dark chocolate (75% cocoa minimum )
  • 5 tbsp (70 g) butter
  • 3 tbsp (50 g) flour
  • 4 eggs


  • Break chocolate into small pieces and place in bowl
  • Set bowl over boiling water to melt chocolate completely
  • Add diced butter
  • Allow butter to melt and mix well
  • Break eggs into mixing bowl
  • Gradually add sugar while mixing with eggs
  • Sift flour
  • Gradually add flour to mixing bowl while mixing
  • Add melted chocolate and mix
  • Butter and flour inside of ramekins or individual-size molds
  • Pour egg chocolate preparation into ramekins until ¾ full.
  • Cook ramekins in pre-heated oven at 220°C (425 ºF) for 6 to 7 minutes. Cooking is done when surface protruding from ramekin is just beginning to crackle
  • Unmold after cooling 1 minute
  • Serve warm on a dish coated with English cream (Custard) with a tiny leaf of fresh mint


  • For garnish, here are a few suggestions:
    Add a dash of raspberry coulis to English cream (Custard)
    Serve with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream
    Cover with a little dollop of whipped cream squeezed from a pastry bag
  • You can add a dash of crushed Malabar pepper to the mixture if you'd like to try out the surprising combination of pepper and chocolate.
  • We all know, of course, that rum and chocolate are absolute best friends, so don't hold back. I might even try adding a dash of liqueur coffee.

Suggested drink or wines

Wine doesn't go very well with chocolate. There are few wines that work with its tannins. My recommendation would be a Banyuls or a Maury wine. I might also try serving a glass of semi-dry champagne or a champagne method Vouvray sparkling wine
