Moelleux-Au-Chocolat

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate dessert, especially moelleux. But a lot of people stay away from baking it even though it is so simple. Well I like to introduce you to this easy and quick recipe and I guaranty you, your moelleux will be cakey on the outside and the chocolate will flow out when you cut into it. Let’s do this!

What you will need – 4 persons

  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 110 g butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 100 g sugar
  • 50 g sieved pastry flour
  • a pinch of salt

Let’s get started:

Step 1

Melt the chocolate and the butter. Miks the eggs, yolks and sugar. Whisk util a loose batter has been formed. Sift the flour on top of the batter and whisk away. When there are no more lumps in the batter add the chocolate/butter mixture. Stir and add a pinch of salt. Poor the batter into a piping bag and let the batter cool for a minimum of 2 hours.

Step 2

About 20min before serving you should preheat the over to 210°C so that when you take the moelleux out they can go strait into your guests tummy! Cut the tip from the piping bags and fill your molds about 3/4. Put the moelleux in the over for about 10 – 12 minutes. After baking take them out and turn them around onto a plate. Remove the mold and serve them!

You can serve the moelleux with some vanille ice-cream and fresh berries!

Enjoy,

An Apple A Day

I have been wanting to make an apple cake for the longest time, but could never find a recipe I liked. I knew I wanted a fluffy and light base with little pieces of apple inside and on top. So what I did was I took a simple vanilla cake and just changed it up a bit. It came out looking amazing and tasting so good!
You will need…
Ingredients:
200g butter
200g granulated suger
200g self-rising flour
1 bag of vanilla sugar (10g)
4 eggs
a pinch of salt
3 apples

Preheat the oven to 175°C. In a large bowl add the butter (soft), granulated sugar and vanilla sugar and mix until a smooth batter is formed. This takes around 10mins (5mins when using a mixer).
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add the yolk to the sugar-butter batter and beat together util mixed well. Add the sifted flour and the salt and mix again util all the ingredients are mixed well. Whisk egg whites util it has formed stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites mixture into paste. Using a ladle, spoon the mixture into a cake tin.

Peel the apples and remove the cores. Cut the apple in small cubes. Lay the cubes on top of the batter and push them a bit into the batter. Bake the cake for 15 mins. Lower the temperature to 160°C and bake another 35-40 mins. Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool.
You can eat the apple cake on its own, but with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream you can make an ideal dessert. The hot slice of apple cake mixed with the cold ice-cream makes for a perfect combination!
