Chocolate Fondants – GF
These sensational little beauties are so easy to make, and will impress your guests no end. What’s more, they’re completely guilt free and no one will be any the wiser!
- 150g organic chocolate
- 150g organic butter
- 125g organic rice flour or gluten free flour
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 50g SugaVida
- 1 tsp of bicarb of soda (optional)
Melt the chocolate and butter over a bain-marie and add 40g of SugaVida until smooth and glossy (65⁰C is ideal if you have a thermometer) and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Separate two egg yolks and whisk the egg white of one egg. Incorporate egg yolk – one at a time – into your chocolate mixture using a wooden spoon/spatula/whisk.
Using a bakers’ sift, add the flour to your chocolate and egg yolk mixture while stirring constantly. Add a level teaspoon of bicarb of soda (optional). Add 10g of SugaVida. Gently fold in the whipped egg white and pour into greased ramekins and put into a pre-heated oven 180⁰C fan/200⁰C fan-free for 8 minutes. Take out, leave to cool for 4 minutes and serve.
Please note that you do not necessarily need to whisk the egg white separately. But it does make the fondants lighter.
