I got my next Secret Recipe Club assignment. I wouldn't normally mention this, but in cruising the blog for June's post I clicked through and discovered this little gem. So it's not like this is an early reveal...it's more of a thank you for introduction to a site that is after my own heart with recipes like this.
When J and I went on our honeymoon, we went on a cruise. It's was super fun, and I ate a variety of foods that I either don't cook for myself, or that J doesn't like. I had duck, chilled cherry soup, turkey...it was all good. But one of the things that I remember about the cruise was that if I couldn't come up with a dessert, there was always lava cake to fall back on.
Chocolate lava cake is something I really like. Between a dark cake and an oozy center, what's not to love? This recipe combined both in individual servings that I put together in all of about 10 minutes. Seriously dangerous for someone with chocolate chips in the cupboard and the end of a carton of whipping cream in the fridge.
I present to you now Chocolate Moosey's Deep Dish Hot Fudge Cakes:
1/4 c butter
1/2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1/2 c + 8 chocolate chunks
1/3 c + 1 Tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 c flour
1/4 heavy cream
Method:1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a heatproof bowl, mix butter, chocolate and chocolate chunks. Melt in microwave for 2 minutes on 40%. Stir until smooth, and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, beat egg and 1/3 c of sugar until light. Add chocolate and stir with a whisk to combine. Stir in salt, vanilla and flour.
3. Divide evenly between 2- 7oz ramekins. Drop 4 chocolate chunks into the middle of each cake, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until tops of cakes are dry and cracked.
4. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes before topping with heavy cream whipped with 1 Tbsp sugar and serving warm.
