If you are a chocolate fan but don’t like sweet, these are for you!
10ml espresso coffee granules
30ml Kahlúa (or a coffee cream liqueur)
3 eggs + 1 egg white, separated
25g caster sugar
160g dark chocolate, chopped
cocoa powder for dusting
Preheat your oven to 190℃. Grease 6 ramekins with a minimum capacity of 175ml. Place them on a baking tray and set aside.
Pour the cream into a small saucepan over a low-medium heat until just warm.
Add the espresso and Kahlúa and stir until the coffee granules are dissolved.
Divide the mixture between the prepared ramekins.
Add the 4 egg whites to a clean mixing bowl and beat until it forms soft peaks.
Now whisk in the sugar, adding a teaspoonful at a time until the mixture is stiff and glossy.
Add the chocolate to a heatproof bowl set over simmering water and stir until completely melted and silky smooth.
Take the chocolate from the heat and set aside for 10 minutes. Stir it every now and then so that it cools down.
Add the egg yolks to the chocolate and stir through.
Stir in a third of the beaten egg white mixture.
Now fold in the rest of the whites until no trace of whites are left.
Spoon the mixture into the ramekins and bake it for 15 minutes.
Sift the puddings with cocoa powder (or icing sugar if you want a sweeter pudding) and serve immediately.
