116 – Chocolate Fondant Recipe – Eid Special
- 5 oz of dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of flour
- 5 tablespoons of butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom (or cinnamon, chili pepper, vanilla extract, etc.)
1- Melt the chocolate and butter in a bain-marie (or using a microwave). Once the chocolate and butter are melted add the cardamom (or the spices/flavors of your choice).
2- Using an egg beater, beat the eggs and sugar until you get an off-white mixture.
3- Slowly add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture. Keep stirring constantly or the eggs would cook (as the chocolate is hot).
4- Once the eggs and chocolate are mixed, incorporate the flour and stir well.
5- Coat the ramequins (small ceramic baking dishes) with butter and fill them with the chocolate batter.
6- Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees and bake the chocolate fondant for 12 minutes. The baking time may change based on your oven.
7- You can serve the fondant within the ramequins or you can carefully flip them on a plate. Let the fondant cool for few minutes before serving.
