  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Lightly butter four 100ml (3 1/2fl oz) ramekins or other ovenproof dishes to maximum size of 150ml (5fl oz) each, and coat the insides of each with 1tsp caster sugar. Place the butter and Fairtrade chocolate in a bowl and set it over a pan of barely simmering water. Melt gently and set aside.
  2. Beat the remaining caster sugar and eggs together, then mix in the flour. Fold the chocolate into the egg mixture and pour into the ramekins.
  3. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until risen. Serve immediately.

This pud is very rich and indulgent, so it shouldn't be eaten too often. But it's perfect for those special occasions.
