what my heaven will be like

i have a new favorite dessert. do you ever order the molten chocolate cake from chilis? it happens to be one of my favs, and i just found out how to create the masterpiece myself. you should create and then indulge too. mmm.


from the small parties cookbook by marguerite marceau henderson:

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar

6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
12 tablespoons butter
3 large eggs
4 egg yolks
1.5 cups powdered sugar
.5 cup flour

coat 6 ramekins with softened butter and then sprinkle with sugar.
heat the chocolate with the butter in a saucepan until melted.
in a bowl, whisk the eggs and egg yolks until frothy.
add to the bowl the melted chocolate when cooled, the powdered sugar and flour.
bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.
eat within minutes of removing the cakes from the heat.

i like my heaven served with a small spoon of vanilla bean ice cream and some kind of berry, preferable raspberries.

That's one of my favs too!! Along with Red Robin's Mudd Pie. Every time I serve one of those I just want to take a bite!

I love Chilis Molten chocolate cake! Does this compare, because if so this may be a weekly thing for me.
