Probably for those, who love desserts, no justification is needed to make them, for me, however, this is a whole new world. Inspired by my friend Nadina, who tried it out herself yesterday and couldn’t stop talking how delicious this dessert was and ahead of Ben’s birthday, this seemed like a perfect occasion to make chocolate moelleux with raspberry coulis.
Even if you are not a baker, this one is really easy… If you are super sweet tooth, maybe don’t even bother to make coulis, for me it was a great balance for the sweetness. In my opinion, the preparation of all the ingredients in advance is the most important factor, as it will let you not to panic whilst you are attempting baking 🙂
So, here we go.
Chocolate moulloux (makes 6 small cakes) with raspberry coulis
Ingredients for cakes
- 100g dark chocolate
- 75g butter
- 50g icing sugar
- 25g flour
- 2 eggs
- 100g raspberries
- 15g sugar
- 10ml orange juice
- 4g cornstarch
- 60ml cold water
What to do
- preheat the oven to 200 degrees C
- melt the butter and chocolate in bain-marie (or I know that some might prefer to use the microwave)
- in a separate bowl mix the sugar and flour well, then add eggs into mixture and mix well.
- when chocolate is fully melted, add it to the sugar/flour/egg bowl and make it one smooth mixture
- pour this into small separate dishes (3/4 of a dish, as the cake is going to raise). I used muffin forms as I didn’t have anything else and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes – until the cakes have risen.
- while the cakes are baking, pour the starch in the cold water and mix well (until it’s smooth). put together the berries, sugar and juice in the pan, add the water and starch mixture and bring to boil
- boil for 5 -8 minutes, stirring constantly until you obtain the consistency you want
- then blend the mixture and pass it through sieve.
- serve the cakes together with coulis and some fresh raspberries and enjoy!
