Before you start with the recipe, turn on the oven to preheat, so that oven cavity at an even temperature when the muffin trays go in.

Step 1: Throw the ingredients in the pot

Melt butter sugar and chocolate

When you melt chocolate, it is very important never to over cook it. Once it becomes granular, it is over cooked and it will not become smooth.

In our short cut method, while we don't use a double boiler, we do watch the melting process and keep stirring.

Take it off the heat as soon as it all starts to blend and melt together.

Add eggs

Now, expert cooks throw the lot in...yep, eggs, flour the lot.

But here I show you what the mixture looks like when you add the beaten eggs.

A smooth mixture

Just look at the beautifully smooth chocolate mixture. It's just divine.

This is when the eggs are mixed in - the texture is a little thicker and slickly smooth.

Add flour

Now toss in the flour. There's no need to be precious about this. I don't bother sifting. Just measure in a measuring cup and plonk it in.

Fold in the flour with the wooden spoon.

Mix well

Keep folding till all the white floury bits are combined and the batter looks like this - thick and evenly chocolately.

Batter in muffin pans

Pour into muffin trays.

Break up the block of chocolate with runny centers. I used strawberry and caramel centers.

Step 2: Bake for only 12 mins

Place chocolate piece in the center

Press the chocolate into the middle of the batter.

Bake for about 12 minutes. The idea is to have the outside firm, but runny in the middle.

Chocolate Desert Baked

This desert is just divine!

Baking for 15 minutes results in a pretty firm, actually hard muffin. That's ideal if they're to be consumed in a picnic or for lunch boxes.


Cooked a little longer for picnics

The same recipe but cooked a little while longer and packed for lunch boxes and perfect for picnics.

Served with Cream

For desert, we serve with thickly whipped cream.
