Bittersweet Molten Chocolate Cakes

 I needed something to provide some cheer during this dreary month of January. Chocolate always seems like an easy solution, but I definitely wanted to try something different than standard chocolate chip cookies or a candy bar. So, when I found the recipe for Bittersweet Molten Chocolate Cake, I became ecstatic.  A chocolate cake that oozes chocolate? I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it. Plus, the recipe only calls for five ingredients!

Now, this was an incredibly simple and easy recipe; however, the cook time is the most essential part of the baking process. These cakes cannot be undercooked or overcooked. They have to be just right.  To ensure that this cooks correctly, these chocolate cakes have to be taken out of the oven when “the edges are puffed and slightly cracked but center one-inch moves slightly when shaken gently (about 13 minutes).” The result of following these last instructions flawlessly: chocolate-y decadence.

Step 1: Chop Chocolate; Stir Chocolate
and Butter Over Low Heat

 

Step 2: Beat Eggs, Egg Yolks, and Sugar
Until Pale Yellow in Color (8 minutes)

Step 3: Fold Chocolate and
Egg Mixture Together

 

Step 4: Place in Rammekins;
Bake at 425 Degrees (13 Minutes)

Step 5: Add Powdered Sugar or
Ice Cream and Enjoy!

Two words to describe this: Chocolate Coma. Although that may sound bad, it was a totally good feeling.

Cheers!
