Belgian Chocolate Lava Puddings

These scrumptious individual Belgian chocolate puddings have a silky molten chocolate centre that will be sure to impress any dinner guests – just don't tell them how simple they were to make! 



  • Heat oven to 200°C/180°C fan, then grease 6 small pudding basins with butter and place on a baking tray.
  • Place the butter and chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts on a low setting, stirring in-between until just melted. Set to one side to cool slightly.
  • Using an electric hand whisk, combine the brown sugar with the melted chocolate mixture, then one at a time add the eggs and then the flour. Divide the mixture equally between the greased pudding basins.
  • Bake in the middle of the pre-heated oven for 10-12 mins until the tops are firm to the touch but the middles still feel squidgy.
  • Gently run a knife around the edge of the puddings then turn out onto your serving plates. Dust lightly with cocoa powder and serve immediately.
