Moelleux au Chocolat/Chocolate lava cake

I am sure even someone who don't love will love this luscious gooey cake, Now just looking to the picture itself is making me drool for them again :-)
This is a dessert my dauhgter has been asking me to make for a long time and now after making them I am like why I didn't make this delicious chocolate heaven long ago.
Better late than never, Isn't it.

Talking about my daughter, today we are going for a pop concert with her. It is one of her favourite singer called Emillie Autumn and she just love that singer especially as the singer herself plays violin.
Last year we went twice for the same group and agais she asked us to take her as she said the singer won't be back for a while as she is going back to US.
I am looking forward to it as i do love the show they put, you should see the dreeses these girls were, beautiful. Well i would say sexy than beautiful.
Now you all know why my hubby is coming with us :-)
Well he has to as he has to drive us there and we will be only be back sure by one in the early morning.....

There was a time when she was wild about a finnish wild rock group and when they performed in Brussels she begged us to take her and we i the end took her.
The crowd was so hug it was so suffocating. Ofcourse my hubby squuezed and squeezed and manged to get us till the 2nd row.
The concert started, but the music was so loud and my heart was just thumping and thumping that after 30 minutes I fainted and that was the end of the concert as my hubby draged me off the hall and then took me to the side room and I sat there till the concert was finished.
You can imagine what my daughter said to after that yeah old people can't stand music like this.
I am so glad she is not a fan of this particular group.

Now to this super delicious recipe.


190 gm dark chocolate
120 gm powdered sugar
180 gm butter plus 20 gm for the pans
80 gm of flour
3 eggs + 4 egg yolk
Sugar for dusting.

Preheat the oven to 170°c.
Butter the pans.
Melt the chocolate and butter in Bain marie. ( In a bowl on top of boiling water)
Whip the eggs and yolks with the sugar till the mixture iturns white. Add the flour and fold in, and add the chocolate and fold in too.
Put the mixture in butters pans and bake them for 8 to 10 minutes.
Wait some 2 to 3 minutes before you serve the cake.
For serving just turn the cake upside down and sprinkle with powder sugar and enjoy this super delicious dessert.



Beautifully risen.

I am sending this to Srivalli's Mithai Mela.

Enjoy the violin concert. I have a similar experience in a concert with LOUD music and my heart and head started thumping so hard. We stayed about 10mins and ran off the concert. Never again went back. I don't enjoy rock or pop concerts, I would rather sit for classical concert.
