A Chocolate Story — Histoire de chocolat

A Dream in Chocoland

I had mentioned earlier that this week would be the week of chocolate (still eating some eggs and need to make more), and that I was cooking a surprise – namely tomorrow.

My dream is not over.

Come back tomorrow then!

Molten Chocolate Cakes

(for 6 cakes)

You need:

  • 150 g dark chocolate, 70 % cocoa
  • 12 pieces of chocolate
  • 4 eggs
  • 80 g salted butter
  • 90 g blond cane sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch


  • Preheat your oven at 475 F.
  • Melt the chocolate with the butter using the bain-marie technique.
  • Beat the eggs with the sugar using an electric mixer and until white in color.
  • Add the cornstarch. Fold in then add the chocolate/butter preparation.
  • Place in buttered individual molds (I used a popover pan).
    Add the extra pieces of chocolate (2 per cake) and push them slightly in the preparation.
  • Place in the oven for 10 min. Take out and let rest for 5 min before unmolding.
    Serve with berries and enjoy!
