Ingredients

  • 1 x 175g Terry's milk chocolate orange
  • 100g unsalted butter, cubed, plus extra soft butter for greasing
  • 1 tsp cocoa for dusting
  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 50g plain flour
  • 3 tbsp ground almonds

Step by step

Get ahead
The chocolate orange must be frozen the day before you wish to serve the fondant.
  1. The day before you plan to serve the pudding, put the chocolate orange in the freezer in its wrapper, so that it is fully frozen.
  2. Grease a 1-litre pudding bowl thickly with soft butter and dust well with the cocoa, so that all the butter is covered.
  3. Put the cubed butter and the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of hot water and melt gently, stirring occasionally. Set aside while you make the sponge.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, whole eggs, egg yolks and sugar with an electric hand whisk until the mixture is fluffy, doubled in size and pale in colour. When you lift the whisk from the mixture it should leave a ribbon trail on top of the surface. This will take about 5 minutes. Whisk in the melted chocolate and butter, then sift over the flour and ground almonds and fold in. Spoon the mixture into the pudding bowl, then put into the fridge to firm up for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Once the mixture is fairly firm, unwrap the frozen chocolate orange and press it into the centre of the mixture, being careful not to push it too far down, then scoop over the mixture so that it covers the top of the chocolate. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the sides are set but there's still a wobble in the centre where the chocolate orange has melted. Carefully turn out onto a serving plate and serve straight away.
