I do a very similar pud to this. Can't remember where I got the recipe from, but it has been on here. The order in which you make the recipe is slightly different and slightly easier in terms of washing up:
Whizz chocolate until ground up. Add butter and sugar, cook to 60 degrees until sugar dissolved ( cant remember how long, sorry). Leave to cool for a bit, then add eggs and flour and whizz for a minute total, scraping down at least once.
Put into buttered, floured ramekins ( though using cocoa instead of flour looks and tastes better)
Freeze for at least 90 minutes, then bake to taste. Some of my kids love these almost raw, but the freezing certainly helps ensure a runny middle.
This takes about 5 minutes and dirties only the TMX, so I make them during the day practically as I'm making a cup of tea. Fantastic for an incredibly impressive pud!

Here it is girls - it's farfallinas and they are great.  So handy to have in the freezer for unexpected guests - I have 4 in there at the moment.

They are impressive and delicious.

Great idea to freeze these. I've made a similar recipe but only refrigerated them before baking.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

let me tell you courton, my creations are not always wonderful  ;D . in mortlake st ( sauce)

made these agian but prebaked them, then just reheated in the M/W for just 1 min  :( flop, was more like a cake

baked  to order is the way to go  :( will not be doing them for the restaurant any more the pizza oven temp is 300d

and when i baked them the other night the cocoa powder was burnning, to much smoke in the pizza oven, the pizza chef was not happy with me
