"Melt in your mouth" Chocolate puddings
( This will make 18 servings)
Place the butter and chocolate into a pyrex bowl over a saucepan of water, and heat over a low flame, allowing the ingredients to melt.
Remove from heat, add sugar, then eggs, one at a time, using electric mixer at velocity 1. Then add flour and cornstarch.
When well mixed, place 70gr of mixture in individual aluminium forms, and leave to rest for a few hours in the fridge.
Heat oven to 200C, then place the puddings at lowest level and cook 8-10 minutes.
When cooked, turn out onto a plate and serve, dusted lightly with icing sugar, with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.
The secret to success is having the puddings cooked on the outside and soft on the inside.
This dish is called bandiera, which means 'flag', named for the colours of the Italian flag being red, white, and green. Enjoy, while you think of Italy!
