  • Pinch salt 
  • Serve warm with berries and garnish with mint.

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Grease 6 ramekins and dust inside with cocoa powder (this will make turning them out easier).

  4. Whisk eggs, egg yolks and sugar with an electric whisk for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy and pale in colour.
  5. Fold through melted chocolate mixture.
  6. Sift flour and salt.
  7. Stir into chocolate mixture until well-combined.
  8. Pour into ramekins and bake for 12-14 minutes (the centre should still be wobbly).

  10. Turn out on plates.
  11. Serve warm with berries and garnish with mint.
