My work has given me the opportunity to attend a cooking course that I’ve enjoyed tremendously. Is was so fun and the guidance given were easy to follow .
One of the project was this recipe.
Chocolate lava cake.
Dusting mixture:butter and sugar with cocoa powder
120g chopped chocolate
80g unsalted butter
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
30g sifted superfine flour
Preheat oven at 200*c. Melt the chocolate and butter in a medium heat-proof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, stir until melted and smooth. Let it cool.
Next brush ramekins with dusting mixture. Whisk eggs, yolk, vanilla and sugar until thick and slightly foamy ( do not over beat) with a balloon whisk. Fold in warm chocolate until combine . Lastly, fold in flour.
Pour in ramekins till3/4full. Bake at 200*c for 8 to10 minutes. The top should be cooked(set) but soft.
Rest cake outside for a few mins before loosening it with a knife and turn it over.
Serve with ice cream or fruit purée.
**the trick is never to tell your guest what’s for dessert. If you over cook the cake, it will be a rich chocolate cake. Still yummy…
