Recipe by angis
I just made this an hour ago so I'm writing this with a lovely chocolatey taste in my mouth! I found this recipe another website. My cupboard's pretty empty and I didn't feel like going to the shops, so I wanted a recipe which required the most basic ingredients. It's great because you know exactly what's in it. The original recipe requires using an electric whisk. I don't have one in my flat so I had to whisk it all by hand. This was pretty time consuming so I decided to only make it when I was full of energy, but after eating it I feel like making it again straight away!
- 170 g dark chocolate, in pieces
- 55 g butter, cubed
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 45 g granulated sugar
- 30 g flour
- 2 -3 drops vanilla essence
Directions See How It's Made
- Butter ramekin dishes, you can also use one big dish if you want to. Preheat your oven to 180oC.
- Heat a saucepan of water and balance a glass bowl on top, the base should not touch the water.
- In the glass bowl on top melt the chocolate and butter. Be careful to not get any water in the bowl. Keep stirring constantly so there are no lumps.
- Remove the bowl from the heat and replace it with another clean bowl. In this bowl add the eggs and sugar and vanilla.
- Whisk this with an electric blender until the mixture looks light, smooth and foamy. The texture should resemble soft mousse. This step can take up to 10 minutes, don't worry - it's worth it in the end!
- When this is done take the bowl off the saucepan.
- Gently fold in the chocolate mixture, keeping the mixture light and airy.
- Then fold in the flour.
- Pour the mixture into your buttered dish.
- Put it in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until the sides have cooked but the middle is wobbly.
