I love to entertain but some times lack the time to pre prepare the food so am always on the lookout for something I can easily whip up with a few ingredients that are always in my pantry.
Those ingredients are Chocolate (mostly I try to hide this from my children !!!) , Coffee, Eggs and sugar.
It is easy to prepare, takes no time to make and is a delicious light desert that is beutifully matched with steamed fruit or fresh berries.
Simply melt 200g Chocolate with 100g castor sugar and 100ml espresso coffee in a double boiler or in a bowl sitting over simmering water.
Once melted beat in 4 egg yolks . Place into a small china cup or souffle mould with around 50 to 60 mls. Cover with baking paper or with foil.
Steam for around 30 minutes .
