Chocolate Puddings with Centre Sauce Recipe

I recently had dinner at a friends place who is an amazing cook. She served up these decicious but decadent little chocolate puddings. I have to say that they are truly wonderful and once you have tried them for yourself, you will agree with me. She couldn't remember who gave her this recipe but whoever it was, I am eternally grateful.

350g dark cooking chocolate
125g butter (do not use margarine)
100g almond meal
6 eggs - separated
100g rice flour
200g castor sugar
150g extra castor sugar


Preheat oven to 200C.
Melt butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over simmering water (use a double saucpan set if you have one) for about 1 minute.
Beat the egg yolks and the 150g castor sugar together till pale in colour and doubled in size.
Add the chocolate to this.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites and the 200g castor sugar together until light and soft peaks form.
Gently fold this into the egg yolk mixture.
Fold in the dry ingredients gently. I use a knife for this.
Grease 10 individual small moulds (metal is best).
Cook in oven for about 12 minutes.
Turn out onto individual plates and serve with ice cream or cream.
You can half this recipe or alternatively, you can freeze half the uncooked mix in moulds to be used at a later time. If you freeze them, make sure you wrap them in gladwrap before placing in the freezer.
