So, I made these yesterday… Oh my word! Lets jut say I was in heaven. Gooey, chocolaty and rich, what more could a girl want! And all for an astonishing 260 calories! I know, crazy right? You must be thinking “how can these delicious desserts only be 260 calories?” well if I’m completely honest I have no idea! So I admit this is not my recipe but I had to share it because it was so amazing! Credit goes to Diane Morgan from myrecipes.com! Oh and just to make these even better you can make them up to 2 days in advance and just pop in the oven when you need a treat! Perfect! So I shall stop the waffling and go on to the recipe:

Serves 5

Ingredients:

3/4 cup self-raising flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
5 teaspoons instant coffee (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
100g bar dark chocolate finely chopped (easier just to grate it!)
icing sugar to dust

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°.
  2. Sift together flour, cocoa, coffee, baking powder and salt.
  3. Place butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer (or a wooden spoon if your feeling strong!) at medium speed for about a minute. Add granulated and brown sugar, beating until well blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg and vanilla, beating until well blended. Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture; fold in chocolate. Divide batter evenly among 5 ramekins; arrange ramekins on a jelly-roll pan. This is where you can cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days..
  4. Bake at 180° for 18-20 minutes or until cakes are puffy and slightly crusty on top. Sprinkle evenly with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

Enjoy!
