Good Morning America: Jean-Georges Vongerichten Molten Chocolate Cakes Recipe Ingredients
Jean-Georges told Lara Spencer he has been making this Molten Chocolate Cake for 20 years now. You can’t go wrong when you try to make a restaurant-quality dessert in your own home, whether you’re having a dinner party or simply making a special dessert for the family. You could use milk, “but it’s better with dark," the chef said.
For a simple alternative, try baking these in a toaster oven.
- 1 stick Unsalted Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 2 tbsp Flour
- 6 oz Bittersweet Chocolate
- 2 Egg Yolks
- pinch of Salt
Jean-Georges Vongerichten: Good Morning America Molten Chocolate Cakes Recipe Directions
- Preheat oven at 450 F.
- Prep four 6-oz ramekins with butter and flour. Shake off excess flour and place ramekins on a baking sheet.
- Use a double boiler to melt water with chocolate.
- Beat eggs with yolks, salt, and sugar with a hand mixer on high speed until thick.
- Whisk chocolate to a smooth consistency and fold in the egg mix with flour.
- Spoon batter into ramekins and bake around 12 minutes. Cake sides should be firm, while centers should be more soft.
- Let cakes cool about one minute in ramekins. Then cover each of them with an upside down dessert plate.
- Flip the cakes over one by one, letting them rest for about 10 seconds before removing the molds to serve with a scoop of ice cream.
