A wonderful recipe from donna hay's cookbook "flavours". Doesn't take long to make, but extremely rich. Your eyes are going to be tired from rolling to the back of your head. :P
- 300 g dark chocolate, chopped
- 150 g butter
- 6 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
- 4 tablespoons caster sugar (superfine)
- 200 g dark chocolate, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup cream
- 85 g butter
- Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F (170C).
- Line base of eight 1 cup (8 fl oz) capacity non-stick muffin tins with non-stick baking paper.
- Place chocolate and butter in a saucepan (absolutely dry) and stir over low heat till melted and smooth.
- Place the egg, vanilla and sugar in the bowl of a mixer and beat until thick and pale.
- Stir through the chocolate mixture.
- Spoon the mixture into muffin tins and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cakes are just set.
- Cool in the tins and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- To make the glaze, place the chocolate, cream and butter in a saucepan over low heat and mix till smooth.
- Chill the glaze till it is firm.
- Unmould the cakes onto serving plates and spread with the glaze.
I don't think "rich" is a strong enough word for this! Was worried the chocolate and egg mixture were not going to take, however it does in the end, just takes a little time. My muffin pans must be small as I got 12 serves - and I don't think we could have handled a larger serve of these anyway. Very chocolatey - very rich and a very once in a while treat. Thanks!
