If you need a bit of romance, here's a small tip to get, both you and your partner in the mood.
As you probably have read in my previous post "Is Chocolate better than Sex?", I have explored the many virtues of Chocolate, thus here's a small recipe (very easy) that not only is used in many famous restaurants but it can easily be prepared by you. First and foremost, remember that the quality of the ingredients equals the quality of the dish (in this case cake).
Here's the shopping list:
200g of Dark Chocolate
100g of White Flour
100g of Sugar
100g of Butter
Step 1) Melt a spoon full of butter and prepare the forms. You should be sure that all forms have been brushed with melted butter. Rest the forms in the freezer for now.
Step 2) Melt the rest of the butter. Break the chocolate in small pieces and mix throughly till all the chocolate is melted. You should have a liquid paste now. Let it rest for now.
Step 3) Beat the eggs separately. Leave the white eggs mixture resting in the fridge. Mix the egg yolks with the sugar and the flour.
Step 4) Mix the white eggs foam with the other egg yolk mixture. Should be done by hand carefully.
Step 5) Add the melted chocolate to this mixture and continue to stir till you have well blended mixture.
Step 6) Remove the forms from the freezer and pour some chocolate powder over each and every hole.
Step 7) Pour the chocolate mix in the forms, more or less half full.
Step 8) Pre-heat the oven to 180°c, you should bake the cakes around 7 to 8 minutes. When you see the top coming out of the form.
Step 9) Remove all cake from the forms. This should be an easy operation.
Step 10) Serve each cake separately in a small desert dish with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The centre should be hot and liquid.
