Recipe Notes

Chef Notes:

  1. A 'bain marie' is a process of which food in heated indirectly from the heat source via water/steam. In this case, it would be a steaming (not boiling) pot of water with a heat proof mixing bowl to melt both butter and chocolate.
  2. In the process of whisking the air in your eggs, do not, for example, knock the egg mixture that would release all the trapped bubbles and thus the cake not being able to rise in the oven properly. And whisk well - it should be a foam before you pour in your melted chocolate and butter sauce.
  3. Melting Chocolate - When incorporating the the melted chocolate and butter, for best results, make sure the chocolate sauce is warm, not hot, as this will temper the your egg mixture - yielding best results.
  4. Fold in the flour, with a cutting motion, not mixing motion for best results.
  5. Chill the mixture in your moulds for the full allocated time for best results. Served with fruits and/or ice-cream
