Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes

Our very sweet friend Steph from Steph’s Bite by Bite is getting married next weekend so we decided to throw her a Virtual Bridal Shower!

While trying to decide what to make for Steph I played around with a couple of ideas, but I knew that I wanted it to be something sweet, smooth, and chocolaty.

These cakes made the cut, and thank goodness that they did – they are freakin’ delicious!

It’s cake. It’s chocolate. It’s hot. It’s gooey. I wish I made more. I am still shocked that they survived a photo session.

Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes

(inspired by My Recipes)

You will need:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped
  • powdered sugar

Directions:

  • In a large bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In your mixer’s bowl cream the butter, then add in the sugar and brown sugar; beat until well combined.
  • Add in the eggs and the vanilla and continue mixing until thoroughly combined.
  • Fold the flour mixture into the sugar mixture, then fold in the chopped chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter evenly among 8 4-ounce ramekins, cover and put in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Take out the ramekins from the fridge and let sit in room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • Arrange the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops of the cakes are puffed up and crusty on top.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve while they are hot.
  • If you like, serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream… nom nom nom!

ENJOY!

Bourbon Balls

I am not sure what it is, but there’s something intriguing about booze in sweets. As soon as I mention that the cake or the cookies contain alcohol, people just go at them. I think it’s just curiosity – does it taste like alcohol or does it taste like a cookie? For the most part it tastes like a cookie, or a cake.

Craving: Crepes & Nutella

I used to work at this French cafe’ and they made the best crepes. But then again I’m guessing nothing would compare to being in Europe and ordering them. This picture reminds me of how wonderful crepes are, and also the fact that nutella rules. (Thx @djtroublemaker)

Craving: Fruit Brownie Pizza

I can’t imagine anything more refreshing than fresh fruit on a hot summer day like today. But if you told me I could have that fresh fruit on top of a brownie pizza covered in sugar then I might just have to hug you. Here we have a fresh fruit brownie pizza just waiting to be devoured. Enjoy, or don’t either way it’s more for me. (Thx SE)
