1 C (250 ml) milk

¼ C (60 ml) marmalade

Preheat the oven to 160 °C.
Grease a large ovenproof dish with a little of the softened butter. Cut the Pain au Chocolate pastries into 3 and butter the cut side.

Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or slowly in a microwave and set aside to cool.
Whisk together the eggs and sugar and fold in the cooled chocolate. Stir in the milk and cream and pour over the Pain au Chocolates.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the custard has set.
Melt the marmalade with the water and brush over the top of the dessert just before serving.
