Tahini chocolate cake

6 May

  I like to prepare desserts for birthdays. And it has to be chocolate some where. This is another surprise-dessert i made for my husband’s birthday. I found this recipe on La Tartine Gourmande. I found it interesting to combine tahini and chocolate so i said why not try it.

I used muffins tray because i didn’t have any ramekins or teacups suitable for the oven. i think the cakes would have been more goeey and melted if i have used the proper dishes. But the taste was great, the chocolate was strong and rich. No one was deceived. Everyone was satisfied. So thank you Béa.

so rich & chocolateyy

Tahini Chocolate Cake, courtesy of La Tartine Gourmande
-2 extra large eggs
-75g dark chocolate (70 % cocoa contents)
-2 tbsp tahini butter
-1/4 cup Muscovado sugar
-1 tbsp wheat flour
-3 small pieces chocolate
-pinch of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 230C and butter the dishes.
Melt the chocolate and tahini butter in a pan over simmering water.
Beat eggs, sugar and salt until light and the volume doubled.
Fold in gently the flour and then chocolate. Divide the batter between the dishes (keep 1/3 of the batter) and add pieces of chocolate then cover with the remaining batter. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. The less time you bake the cakes the more gooey the center will be.
