Fondant au chocolat...literally translated as melting chocolate?

I have been thinking of making Portuguese egg tarts these days. It seems that it would require a little more effort than I thought. Instead I made a fondant au chocolat in 5 mins. It's a very moist soft dense chocolate cake. Not the one with the melted center(same name but different recipe). Bref, it would make a nice warm tea cake for this afternoon goúter with a nice sugar rush.

Fondant au chocolat
  • 200g baking dark chocolate
  • 125g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 70g flour

Melt butter and chocolate with 1-2 tablespoon of milk in microwave. It should take about 1 min or less. Mix well.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the slightly cooled chocolate-butter mixture and mix well until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the mixture into a greased rectangle/square pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 15 mins.

The cake should be soft and moist inside, not dry.
