Hey friends ! It’s Anastazia, but for you guys, it’s Ana ! I’m among the few volunteers who teaches at Roches- Bois weekly. Having two little sisters, I conduct home activities during holidays to keep them alert and engrossed. As the long summer holidays approached, I proposed a Cooking/ DIY ( Do it yourself ) / Science program to entertain the kids at Roches- Bois, and at the same time, inspire those who want to be part of the scientific world or a chef ! To be honest, I thought the project would be rejected, but to my utter disbelief, Vedant, Cedric and Medha loved the idea.So, on the second week of November , the fellow students learnt how to make a ‘Chocolate Molten cake’ . With the help of Yugal, each student was assigned a part of the recipe; from melting the butter with the chocolate, beating the eggs, to filling the tins. I am proud to say that they loved the class. The kids enjoyed the cake with a scoop of vanilla ice- cream ! They noted the recipe and promised to try it at home.
And for those of you readers who would like to try this at home, here’s the recipe:
70 g unsalted better
50 g granulated white sugar
70 g semi-sweet chocolate
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon plain flour
Put the chocolate and butter in a bowl and micro-wave for 30 seconds, so as to melt the butter and chocolate.
Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees.
When melted, mix in the egg rapidly. The egg should be incorporated quickly as the warm chocolate-butter mixture can cook the egg !
Them add the sugar, followed by the vanilla extract and flour.
Place the mixture in small tins and bake for about 7-9 minutes. The outside should look like a cake, while the inside should be a thick liquid, hot and yummy !
The little tins are served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream 🙂
Stay tuned for the upcoming posts!
