So dd's German exchange student arrived late on Wednesday night which left me as a zombie during the day yesterday and when I haven't had enough sleep, I become grumpy. That feeling started to improve by yesterday afternoon, in part helped by invigilating students in a computer room with air conditioning - bliss and it kept me awake.
We don't normally have a pudding during the week unless I've made something at the weekend and we're eating leftovers. It was only the girls in last night and as we were eating dinner, I suggested we could go for a walk afterwards or maybe pop down to the pub on the river for a dessert. I left the girls to think about it and they were obviously thinking so hard that they forgot all about it. I thought I'd use the time to surf the internet and I came across this post on honey and soy. To be honest, I had book marked it a while ago thinking it would be great to make as the chocolate pots looked so luscious and I can reliably inform you that they tasted luscious too. As I hadn't heard anything from the girls for a while (deep into watching The Big Bang Theory) I decided to make these chocolate pots for pudding. So easy and so yummy.
130g chocolate (the recipe states dark chocolate but I didn't have enough left so I combined milk and dark)
half a cup of caster sugar
3 tbsps plain flour
Break the chocolate up in a bowl with the butter. Put in the microwave on defrost for 6 minutes. Stir to combine.
While the chocolate and butter are melting, butter some ramekins. The recipe says 4 but I filled 6. These are left over from when we bought some Gu desserts.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and sugar. I used my hand whisk at this point.
Bake in an oven pre heated to 200 degrees centigrade for 20 minutes. I think if I had baked them for a slightly shorter period of time they would have been more gooey. Regardless, they were delicious.
This was a really easy dessert to make and saved me money as well - it would have cost us at least £15 for dessert in the pub. Not many steps to something so tasty.
