Melty Chocolate Balls

Posted February 14th, 2009 in Food No Comments »

How did you spend your Valentine Day??  I made some round petit cakes with melty chocolate inside.  They are drops from haven (?)  The chocolate is so yummy!  I used Takoyaki grill plate to make them.

< Melty Chocolate Balls>

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs melted butter
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • vanilla extract
  • 50 g dark cooking chocolate
  • 50 ml fresh cream
  1. Heat up cream in a sauce pan.  Turn off the heat and add chocolate.  Mix it through.  Place it in the fridge once it’s cool.
  2. Place milk, egg, butter and vanilla in a bowl.  Mix it through.  Shift in the flour and baking powder, then  fold that in using a spatula.
  3. Heat Takoyaki grill plate.  Pour the mixture into the holes, and drop 1/2 tsp of ganache.  Once the bottom of the mixture is set, turn it over and cook it around (360º).
  4. Serve on a plate and dust icing sugar over.

Alternatively you can cook them in a frying pan.  Drop a small batch of mixture in a heated pan.  Just before you turn it over, drop 1/2 tsp of ganache in the centre of the mixture, and cover the ganache with another small drop of mixture.  Cook both side.  You can use egg rings or some sort if you like.
