Mini Chocolate Lava Cakes
August 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-7$15
We’re so excited to teach you mini’s these mini chocolate cakes. We hope they’ll soon become a quarantine favorite go-to dessert. We think they’ll appeal to all because they’re . . . Small . . . Delicious . . .Fast . . . Easy!
This flourless chocolate cake is made mini-size: make dessert for one or for many — it is up to you! You’re picturing the best part already, the gooey chocolate center that oozes oh-so-lusciously when you cut into the cake.
Just a few ingredients make the magic!
Here’s all you need for the Mini Chocolate Lava Cakes class (to make 4 small or 1 large cake):
3 ounces chocolate
Ideally, you have 70% or higher dark chocolate, but baking chocolate, chocolate chips — all will do! Don’t worry if you don’t have a scale to measure out your chocolate: look at the chocolate bar’s weight on the package and take a guess. If you have chips, 3 ounces is ½ cup of chips.
4 tablespoons butter (that’s ½ a stick)
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon flour, optional
You’ll need something to bake your cakes in. (We’ll be making 4 mini-cakes.) Ramekins are great (if you have them), I use teacups instead. Look for a small, oven-proof vessel. In a pinch, muffin pans work!
Pre-heat your oven to 450℉. Make sure there is a rack in the middle of the oven.
We’ll make a hacked double boiler in class. You’ll need a pot with hot water in it, and metal or glass bowl that can fit snugly on the rim.
Eggbeaters and mixing bowl (KitchenAid stand mixer, immersion blender or whatever you use to whip with will work too. Can use a whisk in a pinch.)
A spatula for scraping
A sieve or small strainer
Towels and/or oven mitts
