How to Make Molten chocolate cake

HideShow Media
Instructions: 1. In double boiler, add water to bottom pot and add canola oil and chocolate to top pot. Bring water in bottom pot to a boil. Turn heat to low and stir oil-chocolate mixture until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, about 4 minutes. Make sure water does not boil again. 2. In bowl, whisk whole eggs, egg yolks and sugars together until well blended. Whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture until thoroughly incorporated. 3. Add all-purpose flour and almond flour into chocolate mixture and whisk until just combined. Fold in cacao nibs. 4. Brush 10 small ramekins with canola oil and scoop about 6 Tbsp (90 mL) cake batter into each ramekin. You may place filled ramekins in refrigerator or freezer for later baking but bring to room temperature before proceeding with next step. 5. Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and unmold ramekins directly onto plate. Serve warm with fresh berries and Star Anise- and Orange-Infused Canola Ice Cream (see separate recipe) if desired.
