This is by far one of the best desserts I have ever made with the TM. I even keep some in the freezer for when those unexpected visitors drop in. It is impressive and absolutely delicious.   ;D ;D

I recently made these for the first time (had tasted them cooked the old way at SIL's) and although I was a little tentative when taking ceramic dishes from the freezer and putting them straight into a very hot oven (watched them thinking they would crack) all went well and they were perfect in the 15 minutes.  If I had the room in the freezer I would use muffin tins but it was easier to poke a ramekin here and there for me.  I lined the bottom of the dish with baking paper, greased the sides well and sprinkled cocoa powder as suggested earlier then upended the ramekin onto a side plate before placing it into the serving bowl. Easy and these are a must for your freezer for an instant, delicious dessert. Thanks farfallina, I'm sorry it took me so long to get around to them.

I made another batch today Chookie.  This time I lined the ramekins with Multix Cafe Collection Muffin Wraps - quicker and easier than greasing the ramekins and cutting circles of baking paper for the bottom.

This recipe looks delicious but just wondering if I could make these in advance and then put in the oven completely frozen?

As Cornish Cream has already said yes you can medusa  ;)
They are very practical

I've recently made them
I was gonna have some guests and I prepared them 1 week before their visit, kept them in freezer
I baked when it was almost time to have dessert. They only take 15 minutes to bake (+preheating time)

I hope you enjoy

I'm really lazy when it comes to greasing or lining any thing, could I use the silicon cup cake moulds and could I just spray with oil, or will I still need to use paper or sprinkle with cocoa?

Wonder, baking paper is your second best friend in the kitchen. Its not worth trying to skip the important step of tin preparation, as you always wish you hadn't when you are trying to get the thing out in one piece without it sticking and breaking up

I make and freeze these in little ramekin dishes - I line them with muffin liners.

CP, I do take the longer way when I have to but i find that a spray of oil works well in 99% of cases. I use quite a bit of baking paper but find it very fiddly on smaller things. Judy I might have to try some of those muffin liners, where do you buy them from? Do you peel them off when serving or serve in the liners?

Wonder, I didn't try spray of oil for this recipe so I don't know how well it would work
It doesn't have a dense texture so I am not sure

If I were you, I would try one of them with spray of oil and continue with the rest as I described in the recipe and/or as judy said because both ways are tried and confirmed. (I am not much of a risk taker myself :) )

If you ever try with spray of oil please let us know of the result

Ok, I am a lover of chocolate fondant.  I picked my wedding venue because I could have chocolate fondant for dessert.  But I had never attempted making one because I thought it would be way too tricky .... That is until Cornish Cream recommended this recipe on another thread.

The thing I love about this forum is all the recommendations and with the success everyone was having I had to try it. 

Unfortunately, despite greasing the ramekins my puddings are still sticking to the mold, but apart from that these are FANTASTIC!  Next time I will just use a liner in the ramekins.  And there are going to be lots of next times!

Thanks Farfallina
