No, it’s not my contribution to ‘Wordless Wednesday’ :). It’s just that after drooling over some of Smitha and Monika’s baking delights I’ve been really tempted to try my hand at some baking of my own. Hence the attempt 🙂
Thankfully I got a stamp of approval from Namnam who licked the chocolate clean!
Edited To Add:
I was so excited with the outcome of the fondant that I didn’t realize I had not shared the recipe here. Thanks, Saksh for pointing it out to me.
So here goes the recipe which I picked up from Video Jug…
– 3 Eggs
– 100g Dark Chocolate
– 50g All Purpose Flour
– 100g Sugar
– 100g Unsalted Butter
– Some Cocoa Powder
– 6 Aluminium Pudding Tins
– 2 Bowls
– 1 Baking Tray
– 1 Hand Mixer
Preheat the oven to 180C
Brush the insides of the pudding tins with soft butter, then spoon in some cocoa powder. Turn the tin in a circular motion & tap until the inside surface is fully covered with cocoa powder. This will prevent the sticking.
Place the chocolate and butter in a bowl and place it over a pan of boiling water. Leave it to melt while stirring occasionally.
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Gently add in the sugar. Mix until airy and fluffy.
Sieve the flour into the melted butter-chocolate mixture. Then mix until no flour crumbles can be seen.
Now add the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture into the chocolate coated aluminium cups. Place them in a baking tray and bake for 6-8 minutes. After about 6 minutes check the fondants. If they are cooked around the edges with the chocolate still soft in the center, you may remove them from the oven.
Take one of the fondants, ease it out onto a plate. Break it open with a spoon to release the liquid chocolate from the center.
Serve with vanilla ice cream. You may garnish with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle of cocoa powder.
Since I didn’t have any of those, I sprinkled some icing sugar and garnished with some grapes and few slices of water melon.
