A Good Night

Me and my roommates finished an exams today, still one more to go. So, we decided to have a day of rest and feasting. For dinner I made a Sichuan Eggplant dish with rice (sorry, too hungry to take pictures), speaking of which, can we go to Sichuan? After, we watched some Nigella Lawson videos on Youtube, she is definitely my favourite, so sexy and causal. We were inspired by her Choco-pot recipe and since we had all the ingredients on hand, we decided to give it a try accompanied with our favourite "Fried" Bananas.
4 - 6servings
Butter for ramekins
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1. Place baking sheet in an oven preheated to 400°F/200°C. Butter four ramekins and set aside.
2. Using a double boiler, melt together chocolate and the butter. Set aside to cool.
3. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, sugar and flour. Add cooled chocolate mixture, and mix until blended.
4. Divide mixture evenly among ramekins and place on baking sheet. Bake until tops are shiny and cracked and chocolate beneath is hot and gooey, about 20 minutes.
"Fried" Bananas are super easy, easier to make than deep-fried restaurant versions and just as yummy. My roommate Esther is the one who came up with this delicious, fast everyday treat.
Using one banana per person, since it lengthwise and then cut it into 4 peices. Oil the pan with butter (this is where the flavour comes from, so don't skimp), and when it reaches high heat throw the bananas in. Constantly turn the bananas, so they dont burn, ready when soft and golden brown. Serve with chocolate sauce (we just used the batter from Choco-pot) or honey!
