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!
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!
Enjoy this delicious chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream!
