Recipe: Molten Chocolate Cakes

These delicious, warm cakes from Le Cordon Bleu Chocolate Bible are surprisingly easy to make


150g dark chocolate

4 eggs

135g caster sugar

135g soft unsalted butter

40g flour

20g potato starch

6 squares dark chocolate


Preheat the oven to 210°C (410°F).

Butter and flour six individual foil cupcake cases (5x4cm).

Chop the chocolate and melt over a bain-marie.

Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl over a bain-marie, whisk until the mixture is pale and leaves a thick ribbon trail: it should flow from the whisk without the ribbon breaking. Remove from the bain-marie and whisk the mixture with an electric whisk on high speed until it cools.

Mix the butter with the melted chocolate and add to the mixture. Gently fold in the flour and potato starch.

Fill the cupcake cases halfway, place a square of dark chocolate in the middle, then finish filling the cases.

Bake for five or six minutes. Leave to cool for five minutes before removing from the cupcake cases.

Serve immediately.
