I love recipes that are easy to make, impressive to serve and delicious to eat. This recipe delivers 100% and more. You can make the simple batter a few hours in advance, put in a ramekin and keep in the refrigerator. Bake at the end of your meal and serve warm! Perfection.
From by the bay, wishing you warm brownie cake food memories!
SLIGHTLY SALTED BROWNIE CAKE
Adapted from a recipe featured on Goop ” Date Night Dinners”
2 ounces salted butter
2 ounces dark chocolate (60% cacao)
¼ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 ½ tablespoons flour
whipped cream, crème fraiche or ice cream, optional
1. Lightly grease two 6-ounce ramekins with butter or cooking spray.
2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate together over medium low heat, whisking every so often to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn. Once the mixture is melted and smooth, remove the pan from the stove and whisk in sugar and vanilla. Add the flour, whisk, then add the egg and whisk until everything is incorporated. Use a spatula to divide the batter evenly between the two ramekins. At this point you can cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
3. To cook, bake in a 375 degree oven for exactly 18 minutes. Serve plain, with freshly whipped cream, crème fraîche, or your favorite ice cream.
