The most amazing dessert I have ever had. Made by Emeril!**a little update-I normally have to cook mine for a few minutes longer than Emeril states, also I have made this up until baking and kept in the freezer for 2 weeks then baked**
- 1 1⁄2 ounces good quality semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, softened, plus
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- whipped cream, for garnish
- cocoa powder, for garnish
- Lightly butter 2 ramekins with 1 teaspoon of butter and set aside.
- In the top of a double boiler place semi-sweet and unsweetened chocolate and stir occasionally until melted. Remove from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, flour, baking powder and cocoa. With an electric mixer, beat at medium-high speed until pale and very thick, about 5 minutes. Place mixture in prepared ramekins, filling about half-full. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 3 hours.
- When ready to serve, preheat oven to 375°F Place ramekins on the middle shelf in the oven and bake until edges are set but centers are still shiny, about 10 or 11 minutes.
- Invert pudding cakes onto plates and serve immediately, garnished with whipped cream or ice cream, and dust with cocoa powder. (Desserts may also be served directly from ramekins).
Oh my goodness! I love these molten cakes but never, ever, in my wildest dreams did I think I could make it ahead, put it in the freezer and when ready just move it to the oven from the freezer and be eating it 15 minutes later. I think I licked my plate clean. So delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you are a chocolate lover, love easy recipes, and love the idea of having it made and ready to go when you are, you will not be disappointed! LOVE THIS!
This is my go-to recipe for guests or for anytime! First of all, this recipe is super easy, second you can make as many as you want and eat them whenever you have a chocolate craving, third I made this for a dinner party and everyone raved about it! I made them the night before and just popped them in the oven and cooked for 15 minutes. I agree with other reviews, you need at least 15 minutes to get the best results. Glad someone posted this!
So sorry I can't rate this recipe as yet because I have not tried it. All I want to say is that I have been searching for a make ahead dessert like this for ages. At least now I can find it when I want it. Will get back with a rating after making. Thanks for submitting - this has added to my company dessert file.
