I have only had this chocolatey dessert once, at Tammarind Springs....hubby and I had dinner with Mr and Mrs Nordin, and Superwomanwannabe and Superman......a few years back! We have not been out for dinner for quite a while, infact ever since we made do without a helper, hubby and I had never been out on Friday nights...our rendezvous night! We now spend time with the kids, or ferrying Khadijah for her tuition classes on Friday nights!
And...why this Molten Chocolate Babycakes....I have doggymarked this page in Nigella's How To Be A Domestic Goddess book ever since I don't know when!....Ha ha! I opened the book last night looking for something and stumbled on this....I also want to leave this for your taking to do over the weekend...yes...peeps!? I made this at 5 this morning and by the time I got to work, they were nicely tucked in my LocknLock, managed to snap some pics and brought a few for my colleagues in the office! It's that easy okay!
50g soft butter
350g best dark chocolate, I used 50% Valrhona Manjiri and 50% Colatta Dark Choc Chips
150g caster sugar
4 large eggs, I used 4 medium eggs, that's all I had
1 tsp vanilla extract
50g plain flour
pudding moulds, I used 6 ramekins and 3 silicon moulds
1. Preheat oven at 200C, grease moulds with butter and line with baking paper.
2.Melt dark chocolate and let cool.
3.Beat butter and sugar. Add in vanilla, add in eggs one by one.
4.Pour the melted dark chocolate and lastly fold in flour. Divide equally amongst moulds.
5.To bake I warmed my baking tray first in the oven while the oven was heating. Then, I quickly took out the baking tray and arrange the moulds filled up with the batter.
6. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.
This dessert is best served warm with ice cream...so what you can do if you are serving your guests is to prepare the batter in the moulds and keep in the fridge and bake them when your guests are ready for dessert! Voila, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! This was my breakfast this morning :p
