Now get to work and start your journey to perfect your molten chocolate cakes! Happy baking. 🙂
Ingredients: (Serves 6 people)
- Butter- 110 grams
- Flour- 2 tablespoons
- Caster sugar- 1/3 cup (plus extra for coating the inner side of the moulds)
- Eggs- 3 (room temperature)
- Good-quality dark chocolate- 180 grams
In a sauce pan or double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter together until the chocolate mixture is smooth and shiny. Set aside. Meanwhile, with the help of a whisk or an electric beater, beat together the eggs and sugar until pale and thick, about 4-5 minutes. Pour the melted chocolate into the egg mixture and mix well. Mix in the flour, just until combined.
Grease two big moulds or four small moulds with butter and lightly coat it with sugar. Tip out the excess sugar and divide the batter among the moulds. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Bake the molten chocolate on a tray for 6 to 8 minutes; the centre will still be quite soft, but the sides will be set.
Note- the baking time will be slightly longer for larger moulds. Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream and toasted nuts.
Note:- You can serve it in the ramekin or flip it gently onto a plate.
