Hello to all foodies! Today, I invite you to discover a dish that will make you melt with pleasure: Fondant au Choco, a specialty of northern Mediterranean cuisine that you can taste at Quantum Isoraka, a restaurant that combines tradition and modernity in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Chocolate fondant, what is it?

Fondant au Choco is a chocolate cake with a melting texture, as its name suggests. It is often high in sugar, egg and chocolate, and contains little flour. It is cooked slowly in the oven to caramelize the ingredients and obtain a runny centre. It is a very gourmet dessert, which goes perfectly with custard or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Chocolate fondant, where does it come from?

Fondant au Choco originates from the Mediterranean basin, where chocolate arrived in the 16th century thanks to the Spanish conquistadors. It was adopted by the Maghreb countries, which brought their own touch by using clarified butter (or smen) and spices such as cinnamon or cardamom. The Choco Fondant has thus become a symbol of the friendliness and generosity of Muslim culture, which always respects the principle of halal for meats.

Chocolate Fondant, how to prepare it?

To prepare a Chocolate Fondant worthy of the name, you will need:

  • 200 g of pastry chocolate
  • 100g clarified butter
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 5 eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  • A teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Half a teaspoon of cardamom

The recipe is very simple:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (thermostat 6).
  • Melt the chocolate and clarified butter in a bain-marie over low heat, or in the microwave on the “defrost” programme.
  • Meanwhile, separate the yolks from the egg whites.
  • Whip the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt.
  • When the chocolate-butter mixture is well melted, accompany the egg yolks and whisk.
  • Stir in the sugar, flour, cinnamon and cardamom, then add the egg whites without breaking them.
  • Butter and flour a cake tin and pour the cake batter into it.
  • Pendant Bake for 20 minutes.
  • When the cake is cooked, let it cool before unmolding it.
