Warm brownie puddings with White chocolate sauce

Here's a delicious recipe I came across for Warm brownie puddings with chocolate sauce, Yum Yum!


6 muffins, or 4 cups

* 220g good-quality dark chocolate
* 125g unsalted butter
* 4 eggs
* 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
* 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 cup good-quality cocoa powder
Chocolate sauce
* 125g good-quality white chocolate (or dark chocolate)
* 3/4 cup (185ml) thin cream


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and butter 6 holes of a muffin pan.

2. Place 120g of chocolate and the butter in a heatproof bowl over simmering water (don't let the bowl touch water), stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Beat the eggs using electric beaters until foamy, then add the sugar and beat until pale and thick. Gradually add the chocolate mixture. Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa, then fold into the mixture. Pour into the prepared muffin pan and bake for 25 minutes.

3. For the leaves, place remaining 100g chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt as above, then cool slightly. Line a baking sheet with baking paper. Using a palette knife, spread chocolate onto paper in a thin layer. Leave at room temperature for 5 minutes or until nearly set. Using a decorative leaf cutter, gently press into chocolate to make indents. Chill until firm, then break leaves away from the surrounding chocolate.

4. For the sauce, place ingredients in a heatproof bowl and melt as above until a thick sauce forms. Turn puddings out onto plates, top with warm sauce and decorate with chocolate leaves.

Notes & tips

To make these puddings as they appear in the photo above, cook them in four 1-cup (250ml) ramekins or ovenproof cups. Serve with cream.
