- 75g (3oz) softened Kerrygold butter, plus extra for greasing
- 100g (4oz) plain chocolate, broken into pieces
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 whole eggs
- 45g (1 1/2oz) dark brown sugar
- 45ml (3 tbsp) Irish stout
- 45g (1 1/2oz) plain flour
- Icing sugar, for dusting
Method1 Use a little butter to grease 4 individual pudding basins or large ramekin dishes.
2 Put the butter and chocolate into a large heatproof bowl, then sit the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water until the butter and chocolate melt, stirring occasionally. Take care that the mixture doesn’t become too hot.
3 Remove the bowl from the pan and whisk in the egg yolks. Set aside to cool slightly.
4 Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, sugar and Irish stout in a large bowl using a hand-held electric mixer on high speed for 4-5 minutes, until very light and thick.
5 Sift in the flour and fold it in gently using a large metal spoon. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and fold in.
6 Share between the pudding basins or ramekins so that they are 3⁄4 full. Chill for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan oven 180°C, Gas Mark 6. Bake the puddings for 7-8 minutes.
7 Run a knife around the rims to loosen the puddings, then carefully turn out onto serving plates. Serve, dusted with icing sugar.
