Chef Jessica's Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes with Raspberry Coulis

Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

Yield: 6-8 cakes

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz (168 grams) good-quality bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup flour

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Grease 6 cups of a 12 cup muffin pan well with butter.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed pot over low heat, melt chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly.
  3. In a stand mixer or with electric beaters, beat together the sugar and eggs yolks until thick and light yellow, about 4 minutes.
  4. Slowly pour chocolate into egg yolk mixture and beat on medium speed for 5 minutes.
  5. In a clean, separate bowl, beat egg whites with clean beaters until stiff peaks form. About 3 minutes.
  6. Fold egg whites and flour into chocolate egg mixture until combined. Do not over mix.
  7. Divide batter between the 6 prepared muffin cups. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the edges are just cooked. The centre will still be moist and uncooked.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes.
  9. Place a cutting board on the top of the muffin pan and carefully turn upside down. Place cutting board on counter and remove muffin pan.
  10. Serve each cake with lightly whipped cream and raspberry coulis.

***NOTE*** Mixture can be made ahead and refrigerated. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before baking.
