Molten Centered Chocolate Cake Anna Olson

Ingredients for Molten Cakes:

  1. Unsalted butter – 1/2 cup or 4 oz cut into pieces
  2. Bittersweet chocolate – 4 oz chopped
  3. Large whole eggs – 2
  4. Large egg yolks – 2
  5. Sugar – 1/4 cup
  6. Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp
  7. Icing sugar – for dusting

Method:

  • Grease 4 ramekins, coat them with sugar, shaking out any excess, and place them on a baking tray.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate on a double boiler, stirring until smooth.
  • Remove this from the heat (but it can still be warm).
  • Whip the eggs, egg yolks and sugar until they have doubled in volume about 3 minutes.
  • Fold in the melted chocolate, then sift in the cocoa powder and fold in.
  • Divide this batter between the 4 prepared ramekins and chill for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes drop a scoop of chilled ganache into the centre of each of the cakes, pressing down into the batter slightly, but not to the bottom.
  • Bake the molten cakes for about 9 minutes on 350º C preheated oven until the top of each cake has domed up a bit and has a dull finish.
  • Let the cakes sit for at least 2 minutes.
  • Then run a spatula around the cake to loosen, place a plate overtop and invert, and lift off the ramekin.
  • Garnish with a dusting of icing sugar and serve immediately.

Ingredients for Ganache

  1. Whipping cream – 1 cup/8 oz
  2. Bittersweet chocolate – 8 oz chopped

Method:

  • For the ganache, heat the cream until it just begins to simmer and then pour this over the chopped chocolate.
  • Let this sit a minute, then gently stir with a spatula starting at the centre and widening the circles until the chocolate has fully melted and the ganache is smooth.
  • Chill until firm, about 2 hours.
