19 Nov 2014
If there's a dessert which can make you salivate just by looking at it, this would be it. Here's our version of what is arguably the world's most popular chocolate dessert. Definitely a must try for chocolate lovers. Its simpler than it looks!
170g dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa)
115g unsalted Butter
2 tablespoons flour (all-purposes)
2 whole large eggs and 2 egg yolks (for small eggs, use 3 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks)
A pinch of sea salt
(Makes four 6-ounce cakes)
Heat oven to 210 degrees Celsius. Butter ramekins thoroughly and coat evenly with small amount sugar
Melt butter with the chocolate over a double boiler and stir regularly until a smooth chocolate mixture is obtained.
Melted chocolate and butter mixture
Using a mixer, beat the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and salt at high speed until pale and thickened.
Once done, fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture together with the flour. Fill ramekins with mixture to just below the brim and bake it in oven for 8-10 minutes. (As a gauge, remove from oven once the centre becomes relatively firm.)
Next, remove from oven and let cakes cool for 45 seconds before carefully turning them over onto a plate. (Easiest way would be to place an inverted plate over the ramekins and turn them over).
Serve with cocoa power, vanilla ice cream, berries, or ALL.
Lastly, cut open the cake and let the chocolate OOZEEEEE.
