Ready in 45 minutes
"Dessert is individual molten chocolate cakes. They're simple and elegant, and they bake in under 10 minutes in a standard muffin pan."
Melt butter and chocolate in a medium heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water; remove from heat. Beat eggs, sugar and salt with a hand mixer in a medium bowl until sugar dissolves. Beat egg mixture into chocolate until smooth. Beat in flour or matzo meal until just combined. (Batter can be made a day ahead; return to room temperature an hour or so before baking.)
Before serving dinner, adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a standard-size muffin tin (1/2 cup capacity) with 8 extra-large muffin papers (papers should extend above cups to facilitate removal). Spray muffin papers with vegetable cooking spray. Divide batter among muffin cups.
Bake until batter puffs but center is not set, 8 to 10 minutes. Carefully lift cakes from tin and set on a work surface. Pull papers away from cakes and transfer cakes to dessert plates.
Top each with sugared raspberries and serve immediately.
stuartschwartzu5c2q7 11m agoDid a test batch of 8, just to see if really were molten, as so many are not. Timing must be precise. Once you hit the 7 minute mark, at least in my case, watch closely. I pulled at 8 minutes and were not quite there. Added another minute and were perfect. Poured enough in muffin tin to be level with top of tin. With the larger paper cups works out great! Doing a larger batch of 12 today, but will most like just double the 8, since it is hard to do partial eggs. lol.
Lisaf223 5y agoThese were very eggy and fell as soon as I took them out of the oven.
tmiller06 5y agoFlavor is there but they fall apart when you try to take the cups off. I'm glad I tested these on my husband before I made them for a fancy dinner with friends & family. He could care less how they look as long as they taste good. I really couldn't tell you how to make it better, very frustrating.
