Chocolate Moelleux

For 10 people:
200g Dark chocolate
5 Eggs
170g Butter
50g Honey
45g Corn starch

Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Do not let the water touch the pan. At the same time, add the eggs, honey and corn starch to a bowl. Blend whilst incorporating the melted chocolate until you have a smooth, thick dough. Pour the mixture into 10 small silicone cake moulds and bake for 6 minutes at 180°C. Leave to cool before removing from the silicon mould.

Serve with cream or ice cream.

This recipe can be made in a single mould for one large dessert.
