Chili Chocolate Pudding


Chilli is the way to my cooking. Somehow or rather, it is an essential ingredient for most of the Asian spicy dishes. Otherwise we can't possibly enjoy our meals. Worst come to worst, at least the sambal belacan. And for the first time ever, I made a dessert with chillies after watching a cooking show. Both the ingredients really worked well together for the subtle hint of spiciness in chocolate flavored pudding.


Ingredients
80g dark chocolate - cut into smaller pieces
40g butter
40g fine granulated sugar
2 medium eggs
1 level tbsp plain flour
1/2 tsp chili flakes
butter and cocoa - to prepare ramekins/containers with
Sugar for dusting (optional)

Method
Brush the base and sides of 4 ramekins/moulds with butter and dust lightly with cocoa.
Tap out excess.
Place chocolate and butter in heatproof bowl.
Microwave to melt butter.
Stir and cool to lukewarm.
Whisk eggs with sugar until thick and light colored.
Fold in lukewarm chocolate, next the flour, followed by chilli flakes.
Transfer to the prepared containers.
Bake in a preheated oven (190c) for 15 mins or until pudding rise slightly.
Remove and dust with sugar before serving.

  11. Using a hint of chilli is not unusual in chocolate, though it enhances the flavor more. But your chopped chillies on top sounds interesting and I just want to try it.

  13. Wow, a molten chocolate cake with a kick--my kind of dessert! One of my favorite restaurant desserts is an apple spice cake with chile caramel. Must learn to make something like this.

  27. I saw people combine chilli and chocolate on TV before.. I always thought the combination would taste really weird. However, since you mention that they go along pretty well - now, I have no doubt that this marriage indeed works.

  28. I think the sweet and heat are an amazing combo. A while back I bought a jar of cocoa chili powder but haven't used it yet.

  29. The pudding has a nice, firm texture with soft innards when you bite into it, followed by a sweet, crunchy sugary and spicy taste, the chilli is not too hot, fear not, instead, it gives a nice conterbalance to any sweetness, lending body and a mature taste, turning any simple one tone sweet dessert into an exotic morsel, ready to be savoured to the last bite, thanks , Nava, for letting me try your dessert
