Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, 170°C fan. Warm a baking sheet in the oven.

Brush 8 x 100ml ramekins with melted butter and sprinkle over 2-3tbsp caster sugar in an even layer.

Separate 3 eggs. Whisk the yolks with 50g caster sugar until pale and thick.

Sift in 15g plain flour and 15g cornflour; combine.

Put 150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces, in a bowl over simmering water.

Once it has melted, stir in 75g unsalted butter. Set aside.

Bring 250ml semi-skimmed milk to the boil in a pan.

Remove from the heat and gradually whisk into the egg mixture.

Return to the pan and cook over a medium heat, stirring, until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate mixture.

Add the zest of 1 orange. Leave to cool slightly.

Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks.

Gently fold a spoonful into the chocolate mixture.

Repeat until all the egg white is folded in.

Divide the mixture between the ramekins and level the top.

Run a finger around the inside rim of the ramekins.

Bake for 11-12 minutes on the hot baking tray.

Dust with cocoa powder and serve immediately.
