Petits gâteaux moelleux au chocolat


Note : Réfrigérer la préparation jusqu’à ce que prête à cuire.  Faire cuire 10 minutes.

Donne 8 petits ramequins.

Ingredients :

  • 8 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup white or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • butter for greasing ramekins
  • white sugar for sprinkling on ramekins
  • heavy cream, whipped, or ice cream, for serving

Directions :

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. To protect the chocolate from direct heat, melt it and the butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, gently stirring until they melt together.
  3. Remove from the heat and sift in the cocoa powder, stirring until smooth.
  4. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the brown sugar and vanilla until they are thick and smooth.
  5. Pour in the melted chocolate and stir until smooth.
  6. Rub the inside of each ramekin or muffin mould with butter to make a thin film. Lightly sprinkle each with sugar and shake to coat the inside, shaking out any excess.
  7. Evenly divide the cake batter among the ramekins.
  8. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the batter rises, the tops are cracked and the insides are still a bit gooey, no more than 10 minutes.
  9. Cool for a few minutes; the cakes will shrink a bit and pull away from the sides. If necessary, run a paring knife around the edges of the cakes to loosen them. Carefully invert onto a plate. Serve with lots of whipped cream or ice cream.
