Molten Chocolate Cake

I bought some ramekins a long time ago. Probably 3 to 4 years back but I never used them. I put them in good use the other night when I baked some desserts.

Molten Chocolate Cake is one of our favorite desserts and I tried to re-create it at home. It turned out just fine and we had a very rich molten chocolate cake topped with a scoop vanilla ice cream for dessert after dinner the other night. It was so good I finished one serving of the cake with two scoops of ice cream.

Bed time came and I couldn't sleep, Ferald neither and even the kids were all feeling the same. I was up until 4 am, thank God I have Sydney Sheldon book to accompany me after Ferald already find his comfortable spot to snooze. Sorry to say but I blame it to the chocolate but what can I do it was all so good, so yummy. I promise, no lies.

I actually did the shortcut on how to do this but it's up to you if you would like to follow the long way or the short way. The short way worked for me and I have no complaints.

I followed the recipe from here but I did follow the procedure I saw on YouTube how chefs do it. This recipe yields 5


1/2 cup unsalted butter
170 grams semisweet chocolate chopped
3 large eggs
1/3 cup granulated sugar and 1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt or cream of tartar

Preheat oven 400 F or 200 C. Butter your ramekins and coat with granulated sugar, set aside

Take a heatproof bowl placed it on top of the pot with boiling water (no contact) or a double broiler and melt butter and chocolate. Remove bowl from heat, whisk in eggs one at a time, sugar, vanilla extract, flour and salt, whisk until combined, pour in the ramekins and pop in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Once it's cooked, remove from the oven and let sit for 2 minutes. Run sides with a sharp knife and transfer to a plate, topped with scoop or scoops of vanilla ice cream or your favorite fruit. serve and enjoy.

1 serving can actually be shared by two but I am warning you it's so good, I'm sure you'll ask for more.

Happy eating.
