Ingredients
  • 115g butter
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 50ml strong coffee
  • 2 eggs
  • 70g self-raising flour
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 4tbsp peanut butter
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the butter, brown sugar, chocolate and coffee into a pan. Heat gently for 3-4 mins, stirring constantly, until melted and glossy. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool for 10 mins.

  • Add the eggs to the slightly cooled mixture and beat in. Stir through the flour and cocoa powder.

  • Divide ¾ of the chocolate batter between 4 ramekins. Add 1tbsp peanut butter to each, then top with the remaining batter.

  • Bake for 12-13 mins, until the tops are risen and cracked but a skewer inserted still comes out covered in batter. Each pot serves 2 people as an indulgent treat.
