This video shows you how to make molten bittersweet chocolate puddings, and they are a cross between a chocolate souffle and a molten chocolate cake. It's got a crisp light exterior but a gooey molten center. It is best served with ice cream or a dusting of powdered sugar.


Bittersweet chocolate 4 Ounce , chopped
Unsalted butter 4 Tablespoon
Sugar 4 Tablespoon , divided
Eggs 2 , separated
Vanilla extract 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1/4 Teaspoon (Optional)
Vanilla ice cream 1 Pint



1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Place four ramekins on a baking sheet, and set aside.


3. In a mixing bowl, combine chocolate and butter. Place the bowl in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from oven and stir well. Repeat the process until chocolate melts. You can also melt chocolate in double boiler.

4. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar, egg yolks, cinnamon, and vanilla.

5. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with a mixer until foamy.

6. Add the remaining sugar and the salt, and beat until stiff peaks form.

7. With a spatula, fold 1/3 of the stiff egg whites into the chocolate mixture, to lighten it.

8. Add the remaining egg whites, 1/3 at a time, folding it gently and taking care not to deflate the egg whites.

9. Pour the mixture equally into the ramekins and pop it in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.


10. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
