    Easy pudding that can be made well in advance. A little fruit is also nice on top before the sauce is spooned over.

    Preparation time:- 15 minutes.
    Cooking time:- 30 minutes.

    1 pint double cream
    1 tsp coffee granules
    pinch salt
    80g Aldi Moser bitter chocolate, chopped (70%)
    4 medium egg yolks
    120g granulated sugar

    For the sauce

    100g white chocolate
    100mls double cream
    Grated bitter chocolate

    Pre heat the oven to 325F, Gas 3.
    Bring the cream, coffee and salt to the boil, then add the chopped chocolate, remove from the heat and stir until dissolved.
    Whisk the egg yolks and sugar just to bring together.
    Pour on the chocolate milk and stir well.
    Pour into 4 or 6 (depending on the size) small china pots are perfect, but ramequins will suffice. Egg cups can be used if you have kids or you are serving a couple of puds.
    Place the pots carefully into a baking tray and half fill with boiling water, cover with foil and place in the oven cook for about 30 minutes, or until just set and wobbly.
    Do not over cook.
    When cooked, remove from the tray and cool, then chill well.
    To serve, melt the white chocolate over a pan of gently simmering water, then add the cream, stir until smooth and silky.
    Top with the hot sauce.
