Mini Chocolate Cake
This recipe is from Chapter Four when Marlene bakes a cake to thank her co-worker. Although this cake is mini, it doesn’t lack in the flavor department. Fudgy in the center with a velvet consistency, the chocolate melts on your tongue. The best part about the recipe besides how delicious it taste is that you can adapt it to make it your own. Sometimes, I add a piece of caramel to get a gooey center.
Coca powder and butter for ramekin
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
A pinch of salt
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
Confectioners sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter and dust an 8-inch ramekin with coca powder, set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Microwave on high, for 1 minute in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir in vanilla.
Fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the egg in the bowl of a stand mixer until foamy, about 1 minute. Gradually add sugar and salt, continue to whip the egg until is very thick and pale yellow.
Fold the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture, than sift the flour over top. Incorporate together until no streaks remain.
Pour batter into ramekin. Bake cake for about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
