squares and put in a bowl with the but­ter, rest­ing over a pan of sim­mer­ing wa­ter, to melt.

Whisk the eggs, sugar and 2

vanilla for 5 mins un­til tripled in vol­ume and pale, light and frothy.

Pour the melted choco­late 3

and but­ter into the egg mix­ture. Gen­tly fold in with the flour. Di­vide equally be­tween the pud­ding basins. Chill for up to 1 day if not eat­ing straight­away.
