How To Make

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 F. Set ramekins or baking dishes on a baking sheet
  • 2
    Put the applesauce and chocolate in a medium-sized bowl, and set the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, stirring until smooth.
  • 3
    Using an electric mixer, whip the eggs, and sugar until mixture is light and foamy, and just holding its shape - about 5 minutes, longer by hand. Fold 1/3 of the beaten eggs into the chocolate, then scrape the lightened chocolate mixture over the beaten eggs, and fold it in just until there are no streaks of eggs visible.
  • 4
    Divide the batter into the baking dishes. Fill as much or as little as you want.
  • 5
    Bake the puddings on the lower rack of the oven for about 15-20 mins, until the puddings are puffed up, but a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with some soft, "gooey" chocolate attached.

    Allow to cool before adding your topping
