soft-centered chocolate teacup cakes

These Soft-Centered Chocolate Teacup Cakes are rich, delicious and easy to make.  Kind of a dangerous combination!  They are a take on molten chocolate cake…an almost flourless and uber-chocolatey cake with more gooey, melting chocolate bits hiding in the middle.

They’re hardly more difficult to make than brownies, although you have to whip eggs and sugar until ribbony, so using a stand mixer is a good idea.  The batter is divided among teacups or ramekins, which are half-filled, sprinkled with chopped chocolate and then topped off.  I have quite a collection of teacups for some reason (reason actually being that they are cute!).  I can see these making an adorable dinner party dessert served in mismatched cups.  I didn’t get a photo of the insides for you, but you can see here that they’re schlumping a bit in the middle…that’s how you can tell they have soft centers.  That dip also makes a perfect landing spot for a bit of whipped cream or ice cream.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!
