The Most Indulgent Gâteau au Chocolat

Unbelievable quick - it was ready in 30 minutes!

Recipe By: Louise-Marie-Anne (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/418)
Serves 6-8 Prep: 10 min Cook: 17 min

Ingredients

Dark chocolate 200g
Butter 100g
Milk 60ml
Granulated sugar 85g
Eggs 2
Dark rum 2 tbsp
Plain flour 60g
Cocoa powder 20g

Method

1
Break the chocolate into pieces and put in a bowl with the butter. Microwave for 60 seconds, then whisk well.
2
Add the milk and whisk well. Add the sugar and rum and whisk thoroughly to dissolve the sugar. Preheat the oven to 170 °C.
3
Divide the eggs into yolks and whites. Whisk the whites into soft peaks meringue with a hand blender. In a separate bowl, whisk the yolks.
4
Pour the meringue into the bowl at Step 2 in three separate amounts. Mix gently to keep the bubbles.
5
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and mix it with a spatula. Cut and fold in gently - if you overmix, the finish will become heavy because of the gluten.
6
Pour into a lined 20cm diameter oven tin. Smooth the surface with the spatula and bake for 16-17 minutes.
7
Because there is only a little flour, it will shrink slightly as it cools.
8
This gâteau au chocolat works well if you ice it, it's also really delicious with some vanilla ice cream.

Tips & Note

If you use unsalted butter, you'll need to add a pinch of salt.
