Recipe by Sarah Dall
Peanut butter chocolate fondants
- 180g good quality dark chocolate
- 200g butter, softened
- 100g castor sugar
- 4 extra large eggs
- 4 extra large yolks
- 50g cake flour
- 130g peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of 8 ramekins and place on a baking sheet.
Place the chocolate in a glass bowl and melt over a double boiler. Cream the butter and sugar until thickened, pale and fluffy.
Add the eggs and egg yolks one at a time, whisking continuously after each addition.
Slowly add the melted chocolate and mix well.
Sift the flour and fold into the chocolate mixture. Half-fill the ramekins, spoon 15ml (1 tbsp) of peanut butter in the centre and cover with the remaining chocolate mixture. Make sure the ramekins are only three-quarters full.
Bake until well risen, 12 – 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 2 minutes. Loosen the edges, turn out onto a plate immediately and serve.
