Moelleux Chocolat

So here’s one I really need some help on…especially because this looks so tasty and so simple. The recipe comes from a french blog and I’m having a little bit of a tough time translating the metrics into something I actually have a cup or spoon that will measure. So I put my best guess along with the original metrics. Also the soupspoon measurement isn’t really a universal one. Please cook and comment. This one needs work.

1 cup + 2.5 Tbl or 7 oz. or 200 grams bitter chocolate (80% cocoa)

7/8 a cup or 200 grams  butter

1  1/8 cups or250 grams  sugar

5 eggs

1 ½ soupspoon of flour (I’d try a tablespoon)

Preheat oven to 190°C and grease a cake tin or individual ramekins

1 – Break the chocolate in small pieces and melt it with the butter over hot water or in microwave oven

2 – Add the sugar and mix well,

3 – Add the eggs one by one, carefully mixing before adding the next

4 – Add the flour and mix well.

5 – Transfer to the cake tin or ramekins

6 – Bake at 190°C (375F)for 25 to 30 mn. The F conversion is actually 374 degrees so keep an eye on it while it bakes.

7 – Let it cool for 5/10 mn and serve the ramekins with the chocolate still warm and smooth inside (moelleux).

Or put in the fridge and serve the next day (fondant)… it’s delicious !!!!
