GOOEY CHOCOLATE CAKE:
This was both my first ever Blog Challenge and Tuesdays with Dorie event! Although my cakes were not exactly ooey gooey, I was at least comforted by my fellow bloggers' matching misfortunes, lol. The cake was still delicious, and the recipe is definitely a keeper. Conclusion- less bake time.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 stick unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
6 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sift flour, cocoa, and salt. Melt 4 ounces chocolate and butter over a double boiler. Remove from heat once melted. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and yolk. Add sugar and whisk until blended, about 2 minutes. Add dry ingredients and whisk by hand. With a light hand, stir in melted chocolate/butter mixture. Divide evenly into 5-6 ramkins or muffin tins and sprinkle 1 ounce finely chopped chocolate.
Although the recipe calls for a bake time of 13 minutes, I think I will try 9-10 minutes next time. These are served best warm and make a lovely Sunday night dessert =)
I topped my cakes with fluffy whipped cream and a dash of cocoa powder.
