Mini flourless chocolate cakes
Mum and Celebrity MasterChef 2017 contestant Rachel Stevens shares her easy-to-make flourless mini chocolate cakes recipe.

She said: "I love to make these for my two girls, they’re so easy and guaranteed to please. My mini chocolate cakes are delicious and so quick to make."

"I love my tea, so these cakes are the perfect treat to accompany a cuppa," she added.


100g unsalted butter
300g plain chocolate broken into pieces 
4 medium free-range eggs 
3 table spoons brown sugar 
Pinch of salt 
3 tablespoons of arrowroot 


Preheat oven to 200 degrees/gas mark 6.

Grease a mini muffin tray.

Put the butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, stir occasionally, and once melted allow to cool.

Crack the eggs into a large separate bowl, add the sugar and beat on high speed for 4-5 minutes with a hand held whisk.

Stir the salt and arrowroot into the melted chocolate until combined.

Pour half of the egg mixture into the chocolate and stir gently, then stir in the remaining half.

Half fill the muffin tins with chocolate mixture and bake for 7-10 minutes.
