Sous Chef Nathan has let us in on one of his favourite recipes!                                                          (and also one of the most popular!)

Here’s a recipe that makes 6 of them – so that’s one for each of the family including granny…

CHOCOLATE FONDANT with EASTER CHOCOLATE SAUCE

ingredients;

250g salted butter

6 free range eggs

6 free range egg yolks

130g castor sugar

260g dark 70% min chocolate

50g sifted plain flour

6 greased ramekins – grease with butter and cocoa

Method;

Melt butter in pan

cream 6 eggs and the sugar together until they form soft peaks

gently melt chocolate over hot water bain-marie – don’t let it bubble or boil as this will change the texture and make it grainy

add egg yolks to melted chocolate and stir together

fold in chocolate, butter and plain flour into egg & sugar mixture – use a figure of 8 method – do not beat as all the air will get knocked out and you’ll have a flat fondant!

spoon into moulds – only 3/4 fill to allow room to rise

Place in oven for 7 min at 160°C fan or Gas mark 4

Tip out of mould whilst hot and serve immediately

 

For the Sauce;

300 ml double cream

150g white chocolate

25g castor sugar

1 vanilla pod

Method;

warm cream and vanilla pod to room temperature

Remove vanilla pod, add half white chocolate to warm cream, return to low heat (at this point drop in your favourite chocolate easter egg) ad in remaining white chocolate & sugar until smooth & melted

Pour over fondant, get a spoon and dig in….
