Molten Salted Caramel Chocolate Puddings Recipe Kaleidoscope Blog

I’ve only celebrated Christmas in July once. It was in the Blue Mountains, so it was very cold. There was a fire, a delicious Christmas spread and a joyful exchange of Kris Kringle gifts.

I remember in that moment thinking how I wished us Australians celebrated Christmas in Winter. I also thought in that moment that I would celebrate Christmas in July every year from then on. Unfortunately, that was very short-lived. As in it never happened again. Whoops.

If you do celebrate Christmas in July though, I’ve got a perfect recipe for you. Forget {not completely} about the traditional Christmas puddings and say hello to these Molten Salted Caramel Chocolate Puddings.

The molten centre is thanks to a dark and rich salted caramel you make a few hours before you bake the puddings. You could use a store-bought thick caramel or caramel top and fill if that’s your style.

FOR THE SALTED CARAMEL
  1. 100 grams of caster sugar
  2. 2 tbsp of water
  3. 50 grams of salted butter
  4. 60mL of cream
  5. 1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
FOR THE CHOCOLATE PUDDINGS
  1. 90g dark chocolate, chopped
  2. 125g butter, chopped
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1/4 cup caster sugar
  5. 2 tbsp plain flour
FOR THE CARAMEL
  1. Place the sugar and the water in the base of a heavy bottom saucepan. Do not stir.
  2. Allow the sugar and water to come to a boil and simmer away on medium. Do not take your eyes of it!
  3. Once the sugar is a slight amber colour, remove from the heat and whisk in the butter.
  4. Once it is all combined, return to the heat and add the cream while whisking. It'll become silky and smooth and there will be no fat separating from the caramel.
  5. Remove from the heat and add the salt and whisk.
  6. Allow to cool, but place in a jar or container then into the fridge to set.
FOR THE PUDDINGS
  1. Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Microwave on medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even melting.
  4. Grease 4, 200ml capacity ovenproof ramekins.
  5. Using a hand or stand mixer, beat eggs and sugar for 3- 4 minutes or until thick and creamy. Fold through chocolate mixture and flour.
  6. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the batter into the prepared dishes.
  7. Place a teaspoon of the caramel on top of the batter then top with another 1/3 cup of batter.
  8. Place dishes on a baking tray.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes or until cooked on the edges and still slightly wet in the centre.
  10. Turn onto plates and serve with cocoa and cream.
