  • Caramel filling

    Boil the sugar and water in a wide pan without stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, swirling the pan occasionally until a light brown caramel has formed. Remove the pan from the heat, pour in the cream, continue to simmer and stir over a low heat until the caramel has dissolved, stir in the butter. Place the chocolate in a thin-sided bowl and suspend over a gently simmering bain-marie; the bowl must not touch the water. Melt the chocolate, stir into the caramel. Pour the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool.
  • Cake mixture

    Place the chocolate and butter in a thin-sided bowl and suspend over a gently simmering bain-marie; the bowl must not touch the water. Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. In a bowl, beat the sugar, eggs and salt using the whisk on a hand mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in the chocolate butter, mix in the flour.
  • To fill the ramekins

    Transfer the cake mixture to the prepared ramekins. Spoon ½ tbsp of caramel and one chocolate ball into the centre of each.
  • To bake

    Approx. 14 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 170°C (convection). The cakes should still be a little runny inside. Remove from the oven, tip the hot cakes out onto plates, dust with icing sugar, serve immediately.
