These Chocolate Goo Puddings are kind of like Gluten Free Chocolate Fondants but less daunting to make, at their best they have a dense sponge-like outer shell with a soft gooey chocolate middle, at their worst they have a gooey bottom so when you turn them out they’re like an individual self-saucing sponge pudding, either way, they are delicious and if you don’t let on your guests will think they’re perfect. In fact, the last time I made these a guest said they were just like the GÜ Puddings you can buy in the shops – I’ll take that compliment any day!
- 150 g plain chocolate
- 50 g unsalted butter
- 50 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 additional egg yolks
- 30 g plain gluten free flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.
Prepare 4 ramekins or mini pudding cups by thoroughly greasing them with butter.
Melt the butter and plain chocolate in the microwave and mix to combine as
Set aside to cool.
In a mixer, add the sugar and eggs and whisk on high until they change consistency to a light fluffy mixture that's double in size.
Next add the melted chocolate mixture and sift in the flour and cocoa together, no need to remove the whisk attachment, keep whisking on low until the chocolate and flour have fully combined.
Now spoon the mixture into each ramekin, they'll fill to approximately three quarters full.
I prepared these in advance for a dinner party so covered each ramekin with Clingfilm and added them to the fridge to keep them until I needed them. You don't need to chill, these can be popped straight in the oven if you wish.
When you're ready to bake these you'll need to add them to a roasting tin and fill the tin with water to about half way up the ramekins, this is to prevent the pudding from cooking too quickly and in turn creates the gooey centre.
Bake the puddings for 30mins and serve immediately with custard or cream
Chocolate overload alert! these are REALLY chocolaty and very rich, if you can manage more than one, I take my hat off to you!
