Moelleux au Chocolat (Chocolate Lava Cake)
Posted on May 9, 2011
One of the best chocolate cakes I've made so far. Smooth, delicate and delicious. Crusty top while inside is still runny.
- Makes 6 servings
- 3 eggs
- 6 tbsp sugar
- 100 g dark chocolate
- 2 tbsp flour
- 100 g butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Butter six ramekins, and dust with flour.
- Melt chocolate and butter over a bain-marie until smooth. Meanwhile beat the eggs with sugar using a mixer until thick and light yellow. Mix in flour then add the melted chocolate and vanilla extract and stir well. Pour mixture into the prepared molds.
- Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Bake for 8-10 minutes until the top is set. Remove and let cool slightly. Run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the molds and turn out onto plates. Serve immediatly.
