Molten Chocolate Cake and Seasons Greetings

by sageandhoney

These individual size molten chocolate cakes are perfect for serving at a dinner party. Make sure you use really good, dark chocolate and absolutely do not overcook these; otherwise they will just be cake, which is still good, but not as decadent as molten chocolate cake. It’s important to properly melt the chocolate. Fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a gentle boil. Place the chocolate in a glass bowl, and place this bowl on top of the hot saucer. Keep your eye on the chocolate and stir it as it melts. Make sure you don’t add the melted chocolate to the mix while it’s still hot because it will cook the eggs.

Molten Chocolate Cake

4 tbsp butter, room temp
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
3 eggs
1/3 cup flour (I use white whole wheat)
¼ tsp salt
8 oz melted chocolate (I use Green & Black cooking dark chocolate)
Confectioner’s sugar
Oven 400. Butter 6 muffin cups. Mix the butter and sugar, and then add eggs one at a time. Gently beat in flour and salt until just combined. Beat in the melted chocolate (make sure the chocolate has slightly cooled). Pour the mix into the muffin tins.

Bake for 7-10 minutes, and then let cool for 10 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar and gently remove from the muffin tins to serve.
