    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1/4 cup butter

    2 eggs

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    1 small teaspoon baking soda

    1 tablespoon boiling water

    Marshmallow Filling and Frosting:

    2 cups sugar

    1/2 cup water

    1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

    whites of 2 eggs

    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    1 cup quartered marshmallows

     

    Method

    In a saucepan blend melted chocolate, half brown sugar, and half milk and stir till sugar is melted. When hot, add egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon cold milk, cook a moment longer, allow to cool and add vanilla. Cream butter with remaining half of brown sugar, add yolks of 2 eggs, sift flour with salt and add it and milk alternately, add soda dissolved in boiling water, then cooled chocolate mixture. Lastly fold in stiffly beaten whites of 2 eggs, bake in sandwich tins in a moderate oven for 20 minutes. For icing, boil sugar, water, and cream of tartar till the mixture threads when dropped into cold water, add mixture slowly to stiffly beaten egg whites and flavour with vanilla; beat till thick and fold in marshmallows; fill sponge with some of mixture and spread remainder all over cake.

     Cream Cheese – Put about a pint of cream into a very clean wet cloth. Tie it up and let it hang in a cool place for 2 days. then take it from the first cloth and put into a mould lined with a fresh cloth. (A fig box with the top and bottom knocked out, answers for this.) Put a weight on it and keep it pressed for 2 or 3 days, turning it twice daily.

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Directions

    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.
