Chocolate fondant with white chocolate Grand Marnier sorbet


For the chocolate fondant:

3 eggs

115g caster sugar

60g unsalted butter, melted

75g chocolate (70% cocoa), melted

100g plain flour

For the white chocolate and Grand Marnier sorbet:

225g white chocolate

25g liquid glucose

260ml boiling water

35ml Grand Marnier

1/2 vanilla pod


To make the chocolate fondant:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Prepare 4 moulds (ideally ring moulds approximately 7cm in diameter) with parchment paper and space evenly onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

2. Whisk the eggs until double in volume and then gradually mix together with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the melted buttern and the chocolate, mixing thoroughly to avoid any lumps forming.

3. Then add the flour. Allow the mix to rest in the fridge for an hour. Then knock back the batter slightly to dispel some of the air and pipe the mixture into your prepared moulds, filling them around ¾ full.

4. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

5. De-mould and serve immediately with a quenelle of the sorbet.

To make the sorbet:

1. Melt together the glucose and the white chocolate. Add the boiling water, vanilla pod seeds then sieve.

2. Add the Grand Marnier to taste and allow to cool. Once cooled, pour into the ice cream machine and churn until set. Freeze for later.
