115g unsalted butter,cut into small pieces(plus some for greasing)
2tbsp cocoa powder
125g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids),broken into pieces
2 large eggs,plus 2 extra yolks
115g caster sugar
2tbsp plain flour

Preheat oven to 200c/180c fan/gas 6.Butter the base and sides of 6 ramekins,then dust with the cocoa powder.Shake out any axcess.Put a baking tray in the oven.Put 115g butter and the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and stand it over a pan of simmering water,making sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water.Leave until melted,stirring occasionally.Remove the bowl and set aside for 15 mins to cool slightly.In another bowl,beat together the eggs,yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy.Gently fold in chocolate and butter mixture,then the flour.Immediately divide between the ramekins-the mixture should come almost to the top.To cook,put ramekins on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 11 mins.The puddings are done when the tops are set and starting to come away from the sides of the dishes.Turn them out onto small plates and serve.
