Chocolate Fondant

I'm going to make chocolate fondant this Thursday!

- 3 eggs
- 100 g dark chocolate

- 50 g plain flour

- 100 g sugar

- 100 g butter
- Some cocoa powder

1. Preheat the oven at 180°C
2. Brush the insides of the aluminium pudding tins with soft butter, then spoon in some cocoa powder. Turn the tin in a circular motion and tap until the inside surface is fully covered with the cocoa powder. This will prevent anything sticking later.
3. Place the chocolate and butter in the heat-proof bowl, and place it over a pan of boiling water. Leave it to melt.
4. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Slowly incorporate sugar. Mix until airy and fluffy.
5. Sieve the flour into the melted butter-chocolate mixture. Mix until no flour crumbles are seen.
6. Add the egg mixture into the chocolate-butter mixture so they are both in the same bowl.
7. Pour the mixture into the prepared aluminium dishes. Place into the oven for 6 minutes.
8. Serve with ice cream. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle cocoa powder.

Hi, i came across this receipe on your blog and think it's fantastic. I haven't tried to make it yet, but I'll like to know whether it's possible to keep it for later consumption after baking? Perhaps place it in the fridge then microwave it when I'm ready to serve it?
Thank you!

Hi ing,
Sorry for the extremely late reply. I believe you can keep them in the fridge and heat it up for later consumption but not sure if it will taste as great. Have it hot with ice-cream... the taste is heavenly.
