Chocolate Moelleux Cake

The choco­late moelleux cake is a cake with a liq­uid choco­late cen­ter. We believe its ori­gins are French, though a US-based chef claims he invent­ed it in New York in 1987. This has been dis­put­ed by a well-known French chef, who stat­ed that such a cake had already exist­ed in France for a long time. Regard­less of who invent­ed it, I think we can all agree that the choco­late moelleux cake is THE choco­late cake for choco­late lovers! I have a great French recipe from a friend of mine. It is absolute­ly scrump­tious, and I am so excit­ed to share it with you!

Recipe

This choco­late moelleux is very easy to make. Prepa­ra­tion only takes about 5 min­utes, but you have to watch the bak­ing time to make sure it does not over-bake. You want to make sure there is a liq­uid choco­late cen­ter. It took 30 min­utes in my oven, but it might take less or more time in your oven. I rec­om­mend bak­ing it for 20 min­utes, and then check­ing about every 5 min­utes to see if it is ready. It will be well worth it!

  5. Bake in oven for 20 to 30 min­utes (depend­ing on your oven). You want to make sure that the cen­ter is liq­uid enough, but not too liq­uid. Start­ing at the 20 minute-mark, test using a knife to see how liq­uid the cen­ter is.
