  • Oozing Chocolate Cakes

    Dec 12,2007


    • 4 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt


    Recipe by Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    In a double boiler over medium heat, melt the chocolate and butter together, whisking to blend. When fully melted, remove from stove and allow to cool.

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and the yolks together. Add in the flour and sugar and mix until just well blended; as little air as possible to be incorporated. When chocolate mixture has cooled, add it to the egg mixture with a whisk, again being careful not to overmix or incorporate excess air.

    Butter and flour 4 individual 1/2 cup ramekins or 4 ounce aluminum soufflé cups, tapping afterwards to remove excess flour. Pour the chocolate batter into the ramekins.

    Place ramekins in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 9 to 11 minutes. At 9 minutes, test for doneness: cakes are perfectly cooked when surface appears set, cakes jiggle when shaken, and a wooden pick inserted in the middle comes out coated with thick liquid. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer if necessary.

    Remove ramekins from the oven and let stand 1 minute. To unmold, run a knife along the inner wall of each ramekin, cover with a small plate, quickly invert, and tap the bottom of the ramekin several times with a heavy knife blade if the cake does not fall out by itself. Serve with a spoon.

    Home-made versions of this best selling commercial snacking cake turn up
    in recipe collections throughout the Beauce. A product of the giant Vachon
    bakery at St. Marie, it was launched by founder-bakers Arcade and
    Rose-Anna Vachon who named it for their eldest two sons Joseph and Louis
    and not, as some believe , after the heavyweight boxing champion, Joe
    Louis. Home recipes use a drop-cookie method and -sometimes- a marshmallow
    filling. The baking cake is made automatically with a diameter of 3 1/2
    inches (9 cm). To achieve a symmetrical look and a light texture, I
    adapted a recipe belonging to Mariette Scully Bourque of Notre Dame des
    Pins to the muffin tin.

    CAKE: Grease 12 medium muffin tins or 24 small ones. In a large bowl,
    cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Measure milk into a 1 cup
    measure and stir in vinegar, then baking soda. In another bowl, sift or
    mix together flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Combine dry
    ingredients with butter mixture with milk; stir in vanilla. Fill prepared
    muffin tins half full of batter. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about
    10 minutes or until a tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool for
    10 minutes in pan. Turn out onto rack and cool completely.

    In top of a double boiler, set over boiling water, combine egg whites,
    granulated sugar, salt and water. With an electric mixer, beat until stiff
    and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and beat in vanilla.

    Cream soft butter with cocoa powder. Blend in cream and vanilla. Stir in
    sifted icing (confectioner’s) sugar until icing is of spreading

    Slice cakes in half horizontally. Fill with Vanilla Filling and spread
    tops and sides with Chocolate Icing.
