Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4

2. Mix together the sugar, butter, egg, flour, baking powder, and vanilla extract and finally add the chocolate chips and salt at the end

3. Spoon into little ramekins or oven proof dishes

4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden and cooked through. Top with a scoop of ice cream.

TIPS

  • By adding about 50g extra flour to the dough you can turn the cake mixture into cookie dough. Shape into a log, wrap and chill in the fridge before slicing and baking for about 10 minutes.

  • Swap chocolate chips for sweet treats of your choice, eg white chocolate chips, chocolate buttons etc, or add a combination of sweets for a fun alternative
