La recette de Moelleux au Chocolat (Lava Cake)
Ingredients for 2/4 persons (depending on the size of your mold):
- 4 Ramequins
- 100g semi sweet Chocolate (ideally 70% cocoa minimum). I highly recommend a very good Chocolate quality (remember better qualitly better results)
- 75g unsalted Butter = 1/2 stick of Butter
- 50g powdered Sugar
- 25g all purpose Flour
- 2 eggs
Preheat the oven to around 400degres F.
Melt the chocolate and butter in a bain marie (double boiler).
Mix together the sugar and flour in a separate bowl. Then add the eggs and mix well.
Butter and flour your ramekin dishes.
When the chocolate & butter mixture is truly melted, pour the mixture into the flour/sugar/egg bowl and mix completely with a hand mixer (or your food processor).
Pour the batter into the ramekins about 3/4s full and place in the freezer for 10minutes.
Cook for approx 12-14mins, or until you can see the edges of the cake perfectly cooked and the middle still moving/trembling a little bit.
Remove from the oven an use a knife all around the edge of the ramequin.
Flip the cake over the plate quickly. Serve with warm Chocolate Sauce and fresh Raspberry or Raspberry coulis or vanilla Ice-Cream if you want.
