Fast, gooey, St Valentine’s day bake


I’m not a Valentines Dayist, but since I have these heart-shaped ramekins (thanks to Miss Woolly), a block of extraordinary chocolate and a rather fast pudding recipe, I have whipped up a St Valentine’s bake.

As with all baking, it’s no surprise that the quality of your ingredients makes all the difference.

This chocolate from Belgium is blisteringly fancy. It’s dark, bitter and expensive. Well I think it is, it was a gift, along with a long strip of handmade vanilla bean marshmallow. Amazing they both are.

Chocolate St Valentine’s day puds:
125 grams dark chocolate of the most amazing quality
125 grams unsalted butter
3 eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons of spelt flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, grease your ramekins – heart-shaped or not.

Melt the butter and choc in a bowl over a simmering pan.

Whisk eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla together, then whisk in chocolate mixture.

Pour into your ramekins, which I place on one large baking tray, then into the oven for 10-12 mins.

They’re done once the top is just set. Don’t be tempted to leave them longer or you won’t get the dark, gooey middle.

Serve with saucy love.
