This week my challenge was to make a great chocolate fondant!! And guess what? I did it!
I must say that I´m really proud of myself. Even if it´s a simple recipe, to cook it perfectly is quite hard!!
As you can see I used small ramekins. The only reason is that it´s the only thing I have for the moment... So let´s begin with the recipe shall we?
First of all you need the following ingredients:
- 80-85 g of chocolate
- 50 g of unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 50-60 g of sugar
- 5 tablespoons of fine flour.
Use some extra butter for the ramekins and put them in the refrigerator. Then make a "bain marie" for melting the chocolate and butter. Be careful not to burn the chocolate! when it´s silky, leave it to rest for a couple of minutes while you´re preparing the rest.
Mix the eggs and sugar, and whisk them until you get a creamy texture (you should be able to draw some lines in the cream that sets for 3 seconds before falling together again).
Then swirl the chocolate and cream together until you get a nice brown smooth cream.
Add the flour little by little.
fill 3/4 of the ramekins, and put it in the oven at 200 degrees celsius for around 10 minutes.
Right before plating, use a knife to separate the fondant from the ramekins. Set the ramekins up side down to separate the fondant from the ramekins. It´s great with a sorbet or a coulis!!
And by the way, my girlfriend just loved this desert on a wednesday.
Hope to get comments on this post.
