How to make it

  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl placed over a pan of barely simmering water.
  • Combine the eggs and yolk with the icing sugar and orange zest; stir into the chocolate and butter mixture.
  • Sieve the flour, cocoa and baking powder and fold into cake batter. Leave this mixture to rest for 1 hour.
  • Brush 6 ramekins with melted butter and dust-out with cocoa powder.
  • Pipe or spoon the rested cake batter into the prepared ramekins and chill for a minimum of 3 hours or longer - 12 hours is ideal.
  • Bake the puddings at 180C/gas 4/350F for between 8-10 minutes. The sponge should be just set, and the centre still a little soft.
  • Leave to rest for 2 minutes before turning out. If you greased and cocoa'ed, they come out very easily

    YES. This sounds right. Chilling takes away merely underbaking to achieve that nice chocolate flow.
