When was the last time you hoped for something inspiring to hit you? You kept looking but couldn’t even figure out what you were eyeing for? Then you decided to look away, park your mind somewhere else, and bam! There in front of you was a thing of beauty, an idea worth sharing, an expression meant to take form.
That, my friend, is what this dessert is all about. Uh, no, it’s not the first time you’ll hear of it. But it’s more of revisiting a classic and re-creating it to look, feel, and taste like home. Easy, warm, fun, and rich in taste.
It’s Chocolate Fondant – to share. If you like all things chocolate, you’ll surely love this. Imagine gooey, rich, dark, and delicious yet cheap!
Easy, yummy, cheap, and perfect for sharing.
What’s not to love? You can make it in a 9-inch round dish, so there’s no need to dirty a few ramekins. And you just need 100g of quality dark chocolate, some pantry items such as butter, cocoa, eggs, sugar, and a bit of time to let the oven do its magic on this thing of beauty.
A dusting of icing sugar right after you take it out from the oven makes it even more pretty and yummy. Got vanilla ice cream? Scoop some and add that to your bowl of gooey deliciousness and dig in!
A delectable and fun dessert from a delightful and inspiring lady.
I bet you’ll enjoy a super easy and an absolutely satisfying chocolate dessert inspired by Nadiya Hussain. This amazing human won the sixth series of BBC’s The Great British Bake Off in 2015.
I must say it did not take me long to be out the door and grab what I need to re-create that dessert in my kitchen. And, boy, I’m glad I did. I hope you do, too.
