Molten Chocolate Cake Recipe                                                                         Recipe by iSaamuel

50g of 65% Dark Chocolate,
50g of 55% Milk Chocolate,
50g of Butter,
50g of Sugar,
2 Eggs,
1 Tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract,
1/4 Cup of All Purpose Flour,
Butter and Cocoa Powder to grease and coat ramekins,

Powdered Sugar and fruits to garnish.

1. Over a pan of simmering water, place a large heatproof bowl on top with you Dark and Milk Chocolate placed inside along with the butter. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl, and that the bowl should be completely dry, as well as the utensils you are using to melt the chocolate, as it could seize up the chocolate, turning it clumpy meaning you would have to start again.
2. Set the melted chocolate aside once it has completely melted thoroughly with the butter. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and the sugar together.
3. With your pan of water simmering still on the stove, place the bowl of whisked eggs on top. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and the eggs are warm to the touch, light and thick. Set aside.
4. Pour the melted chocolate into the whisked eggs and whisk constantly. Add the vanilla extract. Mix well.
5. Whisk in the flour until the batter is lump free. Grease 3 ramekins with butter and cocoa powder. Fill each one evenly with equal amounts of cake batter 3/4 way full.
6. Bake at 180C for 5-10 minutes.
How will you know they're ready? Check at 5 minutes to see if the cake is baked on top. Shake the cake little and it should be still a little 'jiggly'.
7. Make sure the cakes do not overbake. Serve immediately once taken out from the oven to quickly enjoy the molten center.
Dust with powdered sugar, garnish with fruits, and get ready for endless praise from family and friends. Enjoy!
