Miss K's chocolate pudding

Miss K's chocolate pudding



  • 125
    unsalted butter
  • melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 25
    plain flour
  • castor sugar
  • icing sugar
  • 125
    dark bitter chocolate
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 small pieces star anise
  • 1 small cinnamon stick


Melt the chocolate very slowly over a pan of hot water with the butter, cinnamon and star anise. Meanwhile, grease 4 x 3.5cm high x 7cm diameter ring moulds with melted butter. Place on a greased baking sheet and line the sides and bases with baking paper, then brush with a little more melted butter. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Beat the egg yolks, eggs and sugar together until thick and pale. Remove the spices and pour the chocolate mix into the egg mixture. Mix well to combine.
Gently fold in the flour, transfer the mixture to a jug and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Pour the batter into the moulds. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until the pudding is firm on the outside but soft in the centre. Carefully remove the puddings from the moulds and transfer to serving plates. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a green-tea ice cream if desired.
