Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Page 371: Baby Chocolate Oblivions
I'm a certified chocoholic, so obviously i LOVE these baby cakes! LOL! These are solely for the chocolate lovers cos' they are intensely rich & chocolate-ty. :D Feels almost like eating chocolate truffles instead of cakes. Also, they are gluten-free baby-cakes, ie, no flour.
These baby chocolate oblivions are very easy to make and baking time only 15mins. There's an instruction which i don't quite understand..ie, put the 9x13 pan over the cupcake pan resting on its edge or something. Must it be resting on edge upside down so it will leave some gap or just rest the entire pan on it so it falls flat on the cupcake pan? Anyway, so in the end, i just put a huge piece of aluminum foil over..*shrugs*. I didn't have 60% chocolate, so i mixed 394g of Valrhona 66% chocolate + 60g of Valrhona white chocolate + increased sugar to 60g. Turned out alright..and not too sweet either.
Ok..i admit, i didn't use the silicon pan, not that i don't have the silicon ones, i have but just too lazy to dig it out..so i used my non-stick metal cupcake pan which is easily accessible. (When you have a tiny kitchen like mine, you'll have to hide a lot of things away..sometimes i hide them in such a safe place that even i can't find..lol!) Hmm..yes, the cakes did get stuck to the pan despite me greasing it, but it was easy to "fix" the problem. I took a spatula and "frost" back the gooey underside stuck to the pan back to the cupcake and smoothen them into shape..hahahaha..see my photos above, doesn't look like the other half the cake was broken off and stuck to the pan right? ;P
I brought some to the office and everyone loved it..and everyone means they are chocolate lovers too. I'll definitely make these baby cakes again but i'll use a mini-cupcake pan instead. These baby cakes are so rich, it's probably easy to 'overdose'..so the smaller the better..:) These baby cakes taste great with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream! :)
