Semi-Cooked Chocolate Recipe (6 Ingredients Only)

Semi-cooked chocolate recipe - Lilie Bakery

A dessert that is always unanimous: the semi-cooked chocolate recipe in just 6 ingredients! An easy and quick dessert, prepared in minutes, with little cooking time. It would be wrong to do without ... It is carried out in small individual ramekins for an even easier service.

As the saying goes: often the simplest things are the best! And this semi-cooked chocolate corresponds perfectly to this description. This is the kind of dessert which pleases for sure, and that can also be served accompanied by a beautiful vanilla ice cream scoop...

What ingredients are needed for this semi-cooked chocolate recipe?

Chocolat : we need dark chocolate pastry here. I used light-bodied chocolate (52% cocoa) but you can opt for more full-bodied chocolate if you prefer.

Butter : it is sweet butter.

Eggs : they will be used to give texture to the semi-cooked dishes (which contain little flour), and will make them swell.

Sugar : I used brown sugar because its flavor blends perfectly with that of chocolate. You can adjust the amount to your liking.

flour : very little is needed, it is the key to a melting result.

Salt : it perfectly enhances the taste of chocolate, just a pinch will suffice.

How to prepare semi-cooked chocolate quickly?

You must bring a saucepan and a container. In the saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate to obtain a smooth and creamy texture.

In the container, we whisk the eggs and sugar then add the flour and salt. All you have to do is pour in the melted chocolate before mixing for the last time ...

To cook the semi-cooked chocolate, I used small ramekins (visible on my photo). They allow the heat to be diffused well during cooking. It is also very convenient for the service afterwards. You have to think about buttering them.

The cooking time is very fast : the longer the cooking time is extended, the more they will be cooked through. This is not what we want here. So you have to be vigilant and especially adapt according to your oven (they are not all identical).

    A recipe that keeps all its promises!
    I was looking for a last-minute recipe to make with my son without risking boring him during preparation and without having to go out for specific errands: this is THE perfect solution! Very quick and easy to prepare (my son loved participating from start to finish), with basic ingredients. A delight! I couldn't resist the urge to add the small square of chocolate in the center just before cooking… Yum!
