Dale Spink is the owner of Brontae's restaurant in Horsforth

1 egg yolk

25g caster sugar

110g plain flour

Cocoa powder


Melt the dark chocolate pellets, orange zest and butter over a bain-marie - placing them in a glass container in a large, shallow pan of warm water.

Cream together the eggs, egg yolk and caster sugar in a mixer until white, or mix by hand.

Add the melted chocolate and butter to the egg mix. Sift the plain flour into the mixture until smooth.

Line cooking rings or ramekins with butter and cocoa powder so the mixture doesn't stick. Add the mixture and bake at 200 degrees for seven minutes.
