Guest – Chef Nora’s Molten Chocolate Cake Recipe

Chef Nora joined us yesterday to make her dessert, the delectable Molten Chocolate Cake.

And here’s the recipe..

220g bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
11 tablespoons or 156g unsalted butter
3 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
5 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C. Butter and flour 6 (6-ounce) ramekins.

Place 160g of the chocolate and the butter in the top of a double boiler, and melt them over simmering water.

Using a mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs, egg yolks and sugar together until pale and thick, about 8 minutes. Reduce speed and add flour. Add the chocolate mixture and continue beating until glossy, about another 5 minutes.

Divide half the mixture into the ramekins. Divide the remaining chopped chocolate among the ramekins, making a little pile in the middle of each one. Top with the rest of the batter.

Bake until just set around the edges, but the center still jiggles. About 12 minutes. DO NOT overcook.

Cool just a few minutes and unmold each cake onto a plate.
