    Preparation: 15 minutes

    Cooking: 15 minutes

    Serves: 5 people

     

    Ingredients

     

    125g dark chocolate 70% - chopped

    125g unsalted butter - diced

    150g castor sugar

    3 medium eggs

    35g plain flour

    5 x Dario moulds

     

    Method

     

    1. Place the chocolate in a bowl, set over, but not touching a pan of simmering water and slowly melt. Stir occasionally.
    2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and the sugar together until fully combined. Sieve in the plain flour and mix well.
    3. Once the chocolate and butter have melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes before pouring into the egg mixture. Stir to fully combine.
    4. Spray the Dario moulds with spray wax, ¾ fill the moulds with the finished mixture and allow to rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes. The moulds can be covered and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days, or frozen for 2 months before baking.
    5. To bake, preheat the oven to 190c and cook for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 1 minute before serving.
