Warm Soft Chocolate Cakes

This is a  wonderful dessert--it's soft and running in the center, but cakelike on the outside.

Servings: 6

6 Ounces Butter, plus extra for molds
6 Ounces Bittersweet Chocolate, Valrhona
3 Eggs
3 Egg Yolks
1/2 Tablespoon Ground Smoked Jalapenos (chipotle), optional
6 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Teaspoons Flour, plus extra for molds

  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Butter and flour 6-4 oz. brioche molds twice (try using melted butter), knocking out excess flour
  • Melt chocolate and butter in microwave.
  • Beat together eggs, egg yolks, chipotle and sugar with a whisk or electric beater until light and thick
  • Beat together chocolate and butter; pour in the egg mixture and quickly beat in flour until just combined
  • Divide batter among the molds (you can refrigerate the molds for several hours before baking, just bring them back to room temperature before they go in oven)
  • Bake molds on a tray for 7 minutes.  Center will be soft but sides will be set.
  • Invert each mold onto a plate and leave for about 10 seconds.  Unmold by lifting up one corner of the mold; the cake will fall onto the plate.  Serve immediately.

There is no getting around buttering and flouring the molds.  I tried all sorts of non-stick and they don't work as well as classic tin brioche molds.
