Hot Chocolate Fondant (Mi Cuit) Recipe

Sunday December 17, 2017

Back

A highlight of our festive prix fixe menu, our hot chocolate fondant (mi cuit) is the perfect end to an indulgent winter meal. Made from rich dark chocolate with a deliciously decadent liquid centre, this recipe is sure to impress even the fussiest of dinner party guests.

Ingredients
Serves 6

115g dark chocolate

110g butter

2 large eggs

60g flour

80g caster sugar

Pinch of salt

 

Method

Melt the chocolate and butter in a bain-marie

Grease six muffin moulds or ramequins, and keep in the fridge

In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the eggs and sugar. If possible, use an electric mixer and blend until the mixture is a nice pale colour and you can make a ribbon when you lift the whisk

Gently add the flour and salt, mix well with a spatula

Next, add the melted chocolate in 3 parts and mix well – the resulting mixture should have a fluffy texture

Take the moulds out of the fridge and pour the mixture into the moulds until they are ¾ full

Bake in the oven at 180°C for 10-12 minutes

Remove the fondant from the oven and leave to set for 15 seconds, before demoulding and placing on a plate

Serve with fresh raspberries and crème anglaise. Now it’s time to indulge!
