Chocolate Pudding

You should be all aware by now that I have an adorable sister, with whom I get into petty fights, euh, I wouldn't say everyday, but most probably every other hour or so! That is an overstatement! But nevermind! The reason why I am mentioning [again, but not for the same reason, I suppose!] about my sister today is because, this post is related to her in every way! She's the one who craved for and actually made this chocolate pudding! And for her first take on baking, I should agree that she's done a very good job indeed! I must also quote that the pudding, was light, fluffy, neither too sweet nor too bland, just the right amount of sugar!

The recipe actually comes from the cookbook I've been mentioning lately, Cooking for One cookbook! Quite easy a recipe, but my sister has no idea of any cooking techniques, no how-to knowledge, and I reckon she's been awesome at making this!

So if you're feeling chocolatey today, then keep reading!




Makes 2 100ml Ramekins


Equipment:
  • Kitchen Scale
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Whisk and/or Hand Mixer
  • Double Boiler/Bain Marie
  • Oven
  • 2 100ml Ramekins or 1 200ml Ramekin


Ingredients:
  • 40g of dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp of caster sugar

  • Cream to serve


Methods:
  • Preheat the oven to 200˚C/400˚F. Put the dark chocolate to in bowl set over a pan of simmering water (Double boiler/bain marie).
  • Allow the chocolate to soften and as soon as it starts to look shiny/glossy, stir until it starts to melt. Set aside to cool.
  • Butter the ramekins and sprinkle half teaspoon of the sugar. Shake the ramekins to coat the sugar everywhere. 




  • Add the chopped milk chocolate to the ramekins.
  • Toss the remaining sugar in a bowl, together with the egg yolk. Whisk until the egg yolk becomes pale.
  • Now, whisk the egg whites until firm peaks are formed.




  • Transfer the melted chocolate to the yolk mixture bowl. Combine well.




  • Then fold the egg white into the chocolate mixture.



  • Make sure you keep the maximum of air as you can.
